they are funny guys at Pitchfork
I've never heard any of Jet's music though, so I can't say if its a fair assessment, but it made me laugh regardless.
is how to write a review.
...but it was hard not to laugh at this one...
...how long the camera-man had to wait to get that, worth every second no doubt...
No rating though. I suppose they don't deserve one.
since the last Jet reveiw. Ace.
jet review is classic.
That's funny. Something like that is exactly what I thought of when they rated that Arcade Fire shit 10/10 and put it top of their Best Of Year list...
and at the time i was absolutely obsessed with it.
It's not big, it's not clever, but that is a pretty funny review.
are complaining about DiS reviews...
Action speaks louder than words I guess.
neither are you
why not? because it has no words?
It tells me that it bears a certain similarity to a pissing monkey, but how do I interpret this musically?
(Don't say "it sounds like piss")
"to listen to this record would be as pointless as a monkey pissing into its own mouth."
A monkey pissing into its own mouth at least gets some benefit: rehydration. :-/
Perhaps it's a metaphor.
That monkey has been stung, in the mouth, by a jellyfish. And his own piss is actually soothing his pain away.
So, all in all, it's a good review. No?
The fact is that the monkey is not taking any new or original material on board, just recycling the same old stuff.
I'm sure they thought about all this.
