what a load of pretentious shit.
just wondering, why you think that? what elements exactly? because i'm not sure i agree....The Wire- yes, pretentious...
Not that I'm a big fan of Plan B, I just think generally it tends to verge on anti-intellectualism, which is always bad.
the criticism "pretentious"... yano.
speaks the truth.
YOUR OPINION REALLY MADE MY NIGHT
on what you want from your music writing. for me, plan b is a good level of description without being too black and white about music, and often describes things in a way that arouses my curiousity, even if it is a little flowery at times. oddly, the only writer of theirs i can't stand is everett true. the wire goes a little further in its writing, but then that is because it is covering music that is primarily more leftfield and experimental than plan b.
