Love or hate em, Pitchfork completely made Arcade Fire.
Not here at all, here they're seriously insanely popular. Neon Bible spent forever in the charts, Intervention was a massive single and mainstream radio played it so so much. It makes no sense but Arcade Fire are so mainstream here and it wasn't Pitchfork that made them. It was a performance at a festival that every newspaper has been talking about for like 3-4 years

#8 - Led Zeppelin - IV



The one with Stairway To Heaven on it.

Quote:
*Yawn* This album is predictable and boring. The first opening 3 minutes of When The Levee Breaks is just stunning though. Easily the highest point in Zeppelins plagiaristic overrated career.
Quote:
I am absolutely sick of hearing Stairway to Heaven and When the Levee Breaks... so overplayed. And I never really liked them to begin with. Too boring.
Quote:
Here's what to do if you get bad service in a dinner.

Before you leave, put dollar in the jukebox and select Stairway To Heaven 3 times.

Plant must be the worst singer ever!

Kind of epitomizes everything I hate about music, the suburbs, and white men over 40.

Houses of The Holy and Zep 2 run circles around 4.

I had two Shins albums and no Arcade Fire albums.

Look at your timelines. They WOULDN'T have even had the album sold in stores in Ireland or performed at ANY festival had their Pitchfork lovefest not happened.

It still surprises me that anyone actually takes a pitchfork review seriously...

I've never even heard of Pitchfork off the internet...seriously, it's not as big here as it is over there

#7 - U2 - The Unforgettable Fire



The REAL opiate of the masses.

Quote:
What's the point of hiring Brian Eno to produce your record if you keep doing the same old tired meat'n'potatoes "rawk"? (Okay, so Eno gets his head on "Elvis Presley And America". Uh-oh.)
Quote:
Ironically, the album is pretty much forgettable. It's not all that bad it's just that U2 are one of the most overrated bands around, and even though this was produced by Brian Eno, this release doesn't really do much for me. The most recognisable track is Pride (In The Name Of Love) which you often hear when turning on the radio, and it's alright but defiantly no classic. Vocally, Bono is weak in a few places and I just found this a bit bland – there’s much better doing the rounds than this.
Quote:
I can't even get past the first song.
Listening to it felt like drowning very slowly in a swamp.
I just had to get out.
Quote:
Brian Eno's production here is both a good and bad thing: on the one hand, he releases their more experimental side, allowing the band to construct interesting aural experiments that are definitely an antidote to their God-bothering bore October. On the other hand, U2 the post-punk band were far more focused and disciplined; here, songs can tend towards freeform avant-garde jams, and, despite what pretentious people may claim, nobody really enjoys freeform avant-garde jams. Pretentious people are liars.
Quote:
I don´t like U2 at all.. It´s just a teenage phenomenom. And this album is pretty boooooooring, but there is something good, too. Some of those songs have some potential, like the opener, "A Sort of Homecoming". And another enjoyable thing is Bono´s great vocal performances. I´m ashamed for admitting that but it´s true.

After all, this album doesn´t give anything special. Few good sounds and so on... Sounds like average album to me. Not shit but not good either. U2 will always be pretty lame band for me.

For teens, this is a dream come true.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
