Definitely.

And fuck decimal ratings. I hope when you guys post personal ratings like that on here, they're merely in jest. Otherwise, you're a jackknob.

And if the Panda Bear album is anything lower than an 8.6, you're a philistine.

I'm going to join you guys and echo the sentiment that the Fork giving this album a 4.7 is a HUGE, steaming pile of bullshit.

If it makes you feel any better, I was going to give you a 5.1.

While I agree that they pick favorites far too much lately, and give backlash to any of the groups they help "get big", this album is admittedly getting extremely mixed reviews from all over. Popmatters, who generally seem to give reviews I agree with much more than PF, gave it essentially the same score 5/10.
My Morning Jacket: Evil Urges - PopMatters Music Review

In the hands of another band, Evil Urges might border on unlistenable. But it is hard to completely dismiss the album if only for how much fun the band seems to be having. The production is full of missteps—big ones—but you at least get the feeling those missteps are done in search of their own vision, and not in service of a market niche or target demographic. And there are a couple of small moments here that remind us My Morning Jacket can still knock it out of the park. But Evil Urges sounds like an album that falls short of its mark, committing the whole to a sound that ultimately weakens and breaks down its parts. Many of these tracks will probably translate well on stage with the band free of all this studio polish—some are already solid additions to their live arsenal—but on the album they sound deflated. The future may be now for My Morning Jacket, but their past sounded so much better.

On the other hand, some sites are giving it fairly decent reviews - 4/5 stars from both Allmusic and Tiny Mix Tapes (who usually rapes any and everything remotely "popular"). But as Popmatters mentioned above, and as we as U2 fans are fully aware of, it's easier to give a band you like more slack when they release a mediocre album.

Weren't our personal ratings in that one thread ZC or IO way back when comprised of decimals?

Don't be a hippo-crit, YLB. That was a grand thread.

Indeed they were.

I believe you received an 8.9.

Conan? I might tune in, SNL was one thing but it'll certainly not befit their style to cram a performance into the time given musical guests on late night shows...or the atmosphere.

Which thread was that again?

I'm just referring to decimals in professional reviews, of course.

Aw, fuck you Bernie Mac. That's why I love Kanye's Graduation, he's nowhere to be seen. Evil Urges is my favorite album of the year so far.
