good old The Onion.
"Coming in at an exhausting 7,000 years long, music is weighed down by a few too many mid- tempo tunes, most notably 'Liebesträume No. 3 in A flat' by Franz Liszt and 'Closing Time' by '90s alt-rock group Semisonic," Schreiber wrote. "In the end, though music can be brilliant at times, the whole medium comes off as derivative of Pavement."
I like Pitchfork though
"Music used to be great, but let's be honest, it's a 6.8 now at best," said Los Angeles resident Lowell Radler, 23, who admitted that he just looked at the rating rather than reading the whole review. "I seriously might never listen to music again."
he's got a point you know - i wouldn't be seen DEAD listening to something that only got a 6.8 on Pitchfork!
the reference to chuck klosterman = lols.
Pitchfork give the new animal collecitve 9.3. It's not that good.
it clearly is THAT good
the songs themselves are pretty good (if you can ignore the often terrible lyrics), but it just sounds absolutely horrendous. Like Phil Spector with the treble turned all the way to 11 and some nuclear powered compressor brickwalling every facet of the music to THE LOUDEST AND MOST UNPLEASUREABLE DIN POSSIBLE
I give it 6.8
it actually is

Stewie: Ah, yes. The bottom ten percent of our high school class is off to fight another battle.
Brian: You stole that from The Onion.
Brian: You stole that. I read that in The Onion. About the war in Iraq.
Stewie: Well, if that's true, then I'd say they've got some sharp cookies over at the, uh...What is it again? The Onion?
Brian: So, if I go up to your room right now, I'm not going to find a copy of The Onion, right?
Stewie: No. (pause, but then Brian pretends to get up. Stewie tries to run, but slips on his food and falls off his high chair) OW!!! DAMN IT!!!
Brian: That's what I thought.
Yeah, so that's all I knew about it until now. It's going to be on my favourites list forever. Thanks for posting this =D
ALL the links on this thread are genius. I'll have to read the Onion more.
