Phoenix at #2?? Over Grizzly Bear and The Dirty Proj?? Wow.

Also, Shuttlecock hasn't been that low in quite some time. The last two albums made it into the Top 10.

What is wrong with these critics?

At least they got 10.7 points per mention, though.

Oh, I don't mean the results, but yeah. Always was a joke, still is a joke. I was talking about Plagenhoef's remarks, re: Pitchfork.

you'd think this Welsh septet were the biggest band on the planet judging by the response here.

The story of the winter I forgot how to speak my mind
Was like a nation's flag but my breeze was too weak
Had to drag me to the hospital, said I had gone deaf
But I heard everything they said, it's just I had no interest

Music critique ain't your bag, Peef.

(Yes, everyone at Penn State is either Peef, an amorphous, cheering white mass, or Joe Paterno, in my mind.)

In "I Just Sighed. I Just Sighed, Just So You Know," the band channels its inner Vampire Weekend

The heaviest influence on the album is Bright Eyes
....wow.....

It'll be an interesting wrinkle to add to this whole thing once Peef meets her at a party and inevitably fails to seal the deal.

Taking Back Sunday is punk rock's essential band?

Taking Back Sunday is punk rock?

Punk rock has a hyphen in it?

I'm not sure if I'm perplexed more by the review or by the fact that someone from Penn State has heard this album. I literally only know one other person here who's even heard of Los Camp!

Threads like these make me hesitant to go into journalism.

Then again, I could just refer to every album as a grower, and I would never be wrong. Just far more patient than my readers.

I consider it impressive that they managed to plug them in a Los Camp review. You can find connections between any parts of our culture if you're insane/determined enough. Next we'll find out that Plan A is the most politically insightful track of the year.
