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.

I never even listened to this today. Too many new things out on the same day.

First impression:

This album whips a llama's ass.

I got an initial listen in yesterday before all hell broke loose. First impression was positive but I need to spend more time with it to see how it holds up.

Did anyone get the special addition LP? Shame it's on low-weight vinyl.

New Interpol!!

Hahah, Winamp. That was the shit, it was like sweet, I can get rid of the RealPlayer now cos that thing sucked.


I like the new Interpol better than the new U2.

Oh man that's a good set I didn't have much interest in seeing them after the forgettable s/t, but a set packed with the best songs from their first two albums? Yes please. On my first listen of the new album and I'm liking it. Like U2's I imagine it'll take a few listens to really sink in, but already I feel like they've regained the energy and intrigue I just wasn't feeling on their last one. Musically it reminds me of Antics, though I'm also hearing some new sounds from them which is cool.

also, not sure if anyone here is into EDM, but I did a dance remix of Obstacle 1. check it out and let me know what you think [/shameless self-promotion]

I'm really happy with this album. Excited to see them next Friday (4th time since 2004).
