Good/interesting discussion all around, and I think Childish Gambino is another example to consider. When Camp got the 1.6 pan from Ian Cohen (which imo is one of the most ruthless reviews they've ever published, https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/16074-camp/ ) I think it really diminished his potential among their demographic. Obviously I don't think the music he was making at that time was ever going to land with ppl that read p4k, but it really made a lot of that demographic categorically ignore Donald Glover's music, and I only think that's changed/changing because of his work on Atlanta and attempts to completely reinvent his musical identity. He was able to do that because:
1. He had a successful acting career/brand to build off of
2. He had a pretty core fanbase outside of p4k readers, which is even derided at the beginning of that Camp review as non-hip-hop fans
Whereas artists who don't have that and only have the acclaim from p4k as a source of support are much more defeated when they lose that support, and have to really consider whether or not to push on while their base slips out from underneath them

That Live Through This review does a good job of looking at Courtney Love's place in popular culture, but doesn't seem concerned about arguing that it's a legit-great album. Which, OK, but that perfect score is just sitting there.

Hole was such a great band. I think 'Violet' may be a better song than anything Nirvana ever did, in hindsight.

Not a big deal but today's Jenny Hval reviews entire premise seems to be that it isn't a concept record like her last one and... it seems like as much or more of one than the last record. It's called The Last Sleep and all four songs on the EP seem premised around sleep or trance like states and the songs overlap with one another lyrically and tonally.

Just seemed weird.

kanye review was way harsher than a 7.1, really read more like a 3 or a low 4.

cool! I just remembered the extent to which it seemed all the board guys I looked up to as having good taste turned on them with that album and then Pitchfork gave it some insanely high score it didn't really seem to deserve at the time, seemingly to make up for blowing it with Alligator

another artist completely panned by Pitchfork early in his career that went on to become successful:

why didn't pitchfork review the new Twin Shadow album that came out two months ago? they covered the release of the album, its singles etc. but never published an album review. seems really weird? unless it was going to be another flop review like the last album and they worked something out so they'd just ignore it instead of giving it a shit review? seems strange!
