They used to have a segment where you could email them with questions. I sent one to Ryan Schreiber once demanding to know why they thought Achtung Baby wasn't in the best 200 albums of the 90s and he actually wrote back and said it was an oversight.

@ Mike, Sometimes when I write posts I think to myself, "I hope _____ reads this". In the post two posts above Mofo's post's case, I filled that blank with your name.

Meanwhile, Lil Boosie needs to finish digging that hole beyond his Rita Hayworth poster.

This is one of my favorite terrible reviews.

Mogwai: The Hawk Is Howling | Album Reviews | Pitchfork

Quote:
The Hawk Is Howling is ultimately listenable, understandable, and vaguely likable. Like the songs that shape it, though, the album just feels redundant and tenuous, like the last empty cloud trailing behind a fierce storm.

“Information is scarce on the status of Boosie. I was told two months ago that he might get out this summer — but he might not get out until next year. What’s clear is that the officials at the Angola Penitentiary are determined to make his incarceration as painful as possible."

Look at that sexy man-beast.



Ok, damn, that is one of the worst metaphors...I have ever had the misfortune of reading. Thanks. I think I lost 3 years of my life.

He just wants his albums to remain timeless:

This review is terrible because of the score he gives it

Kanye West- My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy ALBUM REVIEW - YouTube

And then the score he gives this

Skrillex- Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites EP REVIEW - YouTube

I'd seen the Hot Chip one but not the Lana Del Rey one. Those are some pathetic self-satisfied little fucks. At least when p4k reviewed a Jet album with a gif of a monkey pissing in its mouth it was funny.

Fantano and AV Club are my favorite reviewers. They are the most even-handed and least hung up on waxing philosophical.
