Pitchfork tranches

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

While I was aware of John Mayer in 2001, I couldn't tell you whether it was the summer or fall of that year I first heard "No Such Thing".

I haven't seen an album ranked 8.3 or higher not be called BNM, if it was a new release. I've seen a small handful of 8.2s with the designation, I think but I generally think of 8.3 as the dividing line.

I wouldn't be surprised to see more than one angel olsen record in the top 100, but I highly doubt they'd put both burn your fire for no witness + my woman in the top 25

trying to remember who they did the 8.2 thing to ... i think it was a single band/person several times lol
i came across the reviews recently

Wavves' Wavvves was a rare instance of an 8.1 BNM (https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/12783-wavvves/). they must've rly wanted to boost that one.

There can be more than 200 incredible records in 10 (and a bit) years. I thought it was fine.

oh you mean that we all have different opinions?? :)

I get it, the new canon is that there's actually no canon at all, everything goes which I'm kinda ok with that but there's a ton of albums in that list that are not challenging in any way, like middle of the road/vanilla stuff that's coming from a planet and a culture that's not the one I'm in at all.
it's basically the same kinda stuff that you can find in coachella and primavera sound, I can listen to it, it sounds good (specially the first couple of listens) but it doesn't transform me in any way, it doesn't ask any questions

gotta agree. very few albums on the list have transported me to become more than meets the eye, or to put it more bluntly, a robot in disguise.

I thought this Simon Reynolds piece was good
https://pitchfork.com/features/article/ ... nic-music/

With conceptronica, there can be a feeling, at times, of being lectured. There’s the perennial doubt about the efficacy of preaching to the converted. That in turn points to a disquieting discrepancy between the anti-elitist left politics and the material realities of conceptronica as both a cultural economy and a demographic—the fact that it is so entwined with and dependent on higher education and arts institutions.

Pitchfork-related content

I'm about Rob's age and I hated the term in 2007, so it's nice to see he came around to hating it after inadvertently popularizing it.

time has proven SBS's worth

the article raised my hackles a bit (mainly the clickbait headline) but as I read it I realised it was just a dad rock article and his comments about the PFM 2010's list being a decade he didn't recognise was where it clicked

Given the anxiety-laden malaise that millennials continue to suffer through, it’s unsurprising that chillwave’s proliferation of mood—the sonic equivalent of CBD oil—has sunk its soft hooks into culture at large.

lol he blames ott

I didn’t invent the term dad-rock, nor was my Sky Blue Sky review the first time I used it. I heard it from Chris Ott, a fellow Pitchfork writer and legendary curmudgeon, who dropped it in a staff message-board rant about the overrating of Wilco’s 2002 album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

Only just saw the Top 200 list now and the first thing that baffles me is Taylor Swift's Red is at #59 but 1989 isn't even on the list? If they're going pop canon heavy fine but 1989 should be way up there.
