I would send him and email and complain, but until someone gets the jaws of life, I don't think he'll be able to read it.

I truly cannot fathom someone agreeing with the "points" made in that review. It isn't clear or cogent enough to communicate to other lifeforms. I can't even picture someone who disagrees with it attempting to concede to aspects of it. "Oh yeah, hmm. That's a great point you made there. Yeah. Never thought of it that way. They have become hemmed in by their own aesthetic, kinda. Where is that cumulative intensity anyway? Fuck the contemporary shorn of relevance!"

My impression is that TMT is deliberately impenetrable.

Couldn't get past "turquoise warchalk, hexagonal hermeneutics"

Anyone who uses the word 'hermeneutics' outside of a sociology/cultural studies thesis deserves to be shot.

I'm usually pretty ok at looking at a word and being able to break it down to some understandable roots, but I've really got nothing out of that word besides knowing that tics means it's a method/way type thing.

Oh my God, I just looked up what it meant. The irony is palpable. It's not the exact same definition, but damn was it close.

It's the "hexagonal" that really bothers me in that sentence.

I think people who write like that should be required to speak like that. They'd get the shit kicked out of them for being giant douchebags, and spend too much time in the hospital to be able to write these reviews.

The LDR review I don't really know what they are getting at, and deserving of no rating?

Can this guy write all of Pitchfork's reviews? I only read two of them, but they were both pretty damn decent. Words that make sense next to each other, description I can understand, helpful criticism, highs and lows. Basically: What I expect from a music review.

All our dreams have come true: now we can listen to Ryan Dombal. Pitchfork Podcast 25: Why Coldplay's New Album is Terrible | The Pitch | Pitchfork

Post how far you got through: I hit 2:52 and knocked myself out with a sledgehammer.
