My one caveat: I have a thing about crappy album covers. I'm not sure how Mew even has a fanbase with that shit. This applies to Reatard as well.

Care to show me where those reviews, including the OK Computer one are? Because they're not on the website.

I think that's simply because Pitchfork isn't interested in running a good site and sucks at archiving.

And according to wiki, Pitchfork began in 1995.

I wonder why they didn't review Poppycock.

And not a lot of respect for Schrieber calling Cockropa a "tragic mishap".

I'm not sure that I agree with this, at least if you're talking about Blood Visions, but I'm of the opinion that you'd be doing yourself a favor by checking out Reatard's singles and a Yeasayer live show. I've spent a lot of time with those two bands, but the LPs just aren't where it's at. For me, in case people for some reason think I'm stating this as WORD OF GOD fact.

I could not be more furious about this only coming in at 114 (I had assumed a top 30 placement), but whatever.

Purple Haze:


The album that launched a thousand rap blogs. By 2005 Cam'Ron, surrounded by a coterie of modest MCs just turning the corner (Juelz Santana, Jim Jones), was slithering around the Roc-A-Fella Records office trying to avoid dirty looks from Jay-Z. He'd already scored his long-predicted commercial smash with 2002's Come Home With Me, so he was playing with house money. Call this a personal project for a relentlessly distant artist; an asshole's lament. Purple Haze is simultaneously a refined, perfectly A&R-ed follow-up and one of the most confusing, crude full-lengths ever. Cam's absurdist wit and impressive ability to coil syllables together are at their height. "Down and Out" both justified chipmunk soul entirely and threatened some sort of misogynist victory lap. "Get Em Girls" made opera safe for trunks. And Mizzle lead the most surprisingly knowing series of rap skits since De La had jokes. Cam hasn't been this good in years. But, really, few rappers have.

Franz Ferdinand at 101? Wow. I love that album, but I never thought P'Fork would throw it in the top 200.

Y'all know what I'm going to say about The Boxer [sic], so I'm not even going to bother.


Lame.

Stories From The City isn't in the Top 50?! Should be in the fucking TOP TEN.


GAF, burn P-Fork HQ to the fucking ground. I'll pay you back for the matches and gasoline.

It should be higher, for sure.

Luckily, matches and gasoline are two things that I already have in abundance.

Look what he's done to Champaign with a few drums of gas and a couple of forties.
