I dont think 9 year old reviews are what you should base your hatred of a magazine on, if I remember correctly they had Godspeed on the cover that year too.
That is not "a great review"
it's how 3rd graders do it.
but what's your point? all magazines are going to have some shite reviews in the archives, even ones that we are supposed to respect; http://drownedinsound.com/releases/2543
if you didnt respect the nme because they cover terrible bands in a heat magazine format i'd be right behind you.
who are you quoting?
but it's the same reason i hate pitchfork for not giving shine on a review (even if it was shit), or that they gave whichever album a U.2.
that Jet review is a stone cold classic.
I will give you that the jet one is good
and it has nothing to do with me thinking that ATR isn't that good.
I'd be mad if they gave Kind of Blue an 11/10, or Yankee Hotel Foxtrot an 11/10, or Low (bowie) an 11/10
Maybe an 8 if it wasn't for Smooth Criminal.
Nurse (with or without wound) - my sides.
Yes kids, live at brixton is very good.
But please.... this just sounds desperate. You love a noise record, you are achingly cool, we get it.
i'd do this all the time
