Not an overly negative review, but a 5.9 rating...
If he calmed down a bit it would be a much stronger record.
but it does have some really really good tunes/hooks/lyrics etc. on it. i think its better than 5.9 really but i can understand their rating. I always find it odd when pitchfork build a band up and then knock em down at the next opportunity (see CYHSY, although in that case i'd say it was far more deserved). I think the problem here is that a lot of people will only look at the rating and not read the review. the review there is more positive than a 5.9 surely?
Wasn't the second CYHSY album well received on pitchfork?
5.9 isn't knocking them down, it's just above average for Pitchfork. As said the content of the review is more important than the score anyway
