What Impy said. I love House of Cards.

And while Jigsaw is probably the weakest song on the album (I like all of them, FWIW), I've grown to appreciate Videotape more over time. A shame people got so hung up on the demo versions, because it's a very good piece of writing, even if it doesn't quite take off like the old live incarnation.

Jigsaw and Reckoner are the two best songs on IR.

Have I tripped and fallen into 2007?

Mine too. I don't know how many "list of all the tracks on the album in order of preference" I've seen with it at the end and wonder if people somehow downloaded a demo version of the song by mistake.

I hope everyone who was speculating about the Pitchfork score is satisfied with the payoff. I know how much it meant to you guys.

I'm speechless.

That's like a 3.1 adjusted for other bands. Consider also that it's only 1 full point higher than what they gave Shuttlecock for Atomic Serve.

Also, who called it that THE FORK! would spend three paragraphs talking about commerce before getting to the music?

Thanks. Now I'm picturing Gaga singing a piano ballad about your reaction to a Pitchfork review. Time for another hiatus from this site.

For what it's worth, this pretty well articulates my feelings reading some of the reactions here:

Quote:
A trawl through message boards and social networks leaves the impression that many disappointed fans are still struggling to make sense of the gap between the greatness of the thing they got and the genius of the thing they thought they might get. It's in that gap, when assessing the album overall, that it's easy to get tangled up.

It's incredibly weak that PF first assesses fan response on message boards before formulating their own review. Grow a pair

Some choice adjectives and such:

crumbling
clattering
fizzing
dilapidated
mulched up
slinky
woozily
narcotized
slippery
ramshackle

Many of those could apply to an evening with Lance's Mom. Specifically "slippery," "dilapidated," and "fizzing."

I fixed it, so now it's a mute point anyway.

No one on this board knows how to right.

Agreed. Jigsaw features what might be my favorite Yorke vocal performance to date, among many other qualities.

Also, that's a hell of a PF score. Should have stuck to my guns originally with the very low 8s. Didn't expect them to drop below that though. Just browsed the text, as I have no real urge to read it all right now. I do think they're right in regards to this being their most divisive album, and will likely remain that way. Which in itself is fun.
