Do they only review albums which have an up and coming state side release? I'm a bit confused because other albums by British artists which have slightly less critical interest (though by no means, none) and ones which have been released after Hidden, have receieved reviews. By what criteria does ol' Pitchfork identify albums of interest? Especially ones associated with the U.K music industry, which for all intents and purposes, the Fork seems exasperated with?
Don't get me wrong, they could give the album a 2.0 - I don't expect some big glorious critical orgasm here. I am just a bit interested to see what they think - they did the same a couple of years ago after the release of the Late of the Pier debut.
