That review reminded me a bit of their article on NLOTH, which reviewed U2 and not the album itself. I hate when they do that.

What annoyed me was he pretty much shat on Bright Lights as well. He seemed to be saying that if hadn't come out the year it did it would be a terrible album. The whole thing was just smug garbage.

Yeah just spectacular bullshit. Why commission a review to someone who so clearly has an axe to grind?

A band reinvigorated. Four stars.
my thoughts exactly

Because now you're all talking about it.

Not all web hits are good. Pitchfork is practically begging for a challenger to usurp them at this point; the more of these bullshit reviews they post, the easier they make it for that to happen. I'm sure probably all of us here already have sites we favor over Pitchfork; I sure as hell do.

No one seems to care about the long game anymore. The chase for page hits only incentivizes writers and the like to worry about today.

Drowned in Sound

My favorite part about the above site? User Scores posted next to the reviewer's score.

And they also gave El Pintor a 9/10, so that's a big plus in my book.

AV Club is my favorite.

People will probably laugh at this, but I like Anthony Fantano a lot as well. He's great for left-field recommendations I would never have heard of otherwise.

I can't stand the AV Club. At least for film and television. They are so far up their own ass, it's ridiculous. It's not really their reviews I don't always care for, though, it's some of their round-table discussion type stories. There are other things I absolutely love, Like Undercover, but even that's kinda marred by the host, who seems to think that everyone doing these covers is doing them ironically and couldn't possibly like the artists. I especially enjoyed him getting schooled a few weeks ago when someone covered "In A Big Country" and he tried to insinuate that the band couldn't seriously like the band, to which he was promptly proved wrong.
