As for the recurring fashion lapses, which came first, the chicken or the egg? The ironic hipsters or the sensitive, circumcising jock? Either way - someone, please make it stop. Unless it's someone I enjoy seeing subjected to public ridicule...

It still shocks me that he's not wearing Crocs in that photo.

Jesus sandals are the only footwear holy enough for Tebow.

Well, I think Chris Leak graduated about three years ago, so I'm sure some UF boosters, or Filipino orphans, have updated his wardrobe.

Reads better than an 8.3, but whatever you say P4K.

Well, my guess was 0.3 points off. Thanks for being so unpredictable, Pitchfork.

Yeah, that reads more like a 9.0.

reading some of those reviews can be very draining.

i can't find any information about this album's release in Australia. today is the 1st, so it's been released in the US and the UK, was today just to early to go or something?

i got the new Hot Chip album today and isn't meant to be out until the 8th or 9th in the US/K.

My offer to torch the Pitchfork offices in Chicago still stands.

8.3? Fuck you, you fucking fucks.

Also, reviewing an album and only mentioning two song titles: FAIL.

How about some more in-depth analysis instead of all this Where They Are Now bullshit? Discuss the fucking SONGS, jackass.

I am fine with an 8.3, personally. It's not like it was slagged off. In fact, the review is a rave. The problem is that they CONSTANTLY rate these Welsh bands super highly, but REFUSE to give them Best New Music status (this doesn't only happen with Welsh bands, of course...but it always happens with Welsh bands). Totally retarded. I have seen 7.8s get Best New Music. God fucking damn it.

Yeah, if you guys are mad at an 8.3, don't look up Tiny Mix Tapes' review.

I don't know, I can't say I'm surprised. None of the other music forums I frequent like these guys even a quarter as much as we seem to here. To each their own and stuff.

It's kinda crazy how big Pitchfork has become in the indie (for lack of a better word) music world and how much attention its reviews receive. I wonder if those motherfuckers know about the countless people on the interwebs who squabble and squirm based on their arbitrary little decimal ratings.

Anyway, this album is a lot of fun. I'll never be as big a fan as some of you guys are, but I'm down with these kids. It took only a couple listens before this clicked and I started boppin my head and tappin my feet in approval. It starts off great, those first four tracks are a blast. And Straight In At 101 is very memorable.

They know:

Do we have a PAZZ AND JOB 2009 thread yet?

Or, well, Scott does, anyway.
