Because he didn't like the album he doesn't know who Sonic Youth is, or doesn't like the band? He was just one of many who thought that album sucked. I know plenty of Sonic Youth fans who think the album sucks.

If I remember correctly, the 0.0 score was more of a joke than anything. He was just using this album to vent his anger towards New York and his love for Chicago. Nothing to get offended over.

I don't understand the hate for Pitchfork. Seriously. No other music site that posts reviews gets so much shit. Pop Matters, Tiny Mixed Tapes, etc? No problem. Pitchfork? Satan. Haha. Ironically, I think Pitchfork is the best of the bunch. Not because of the reviews(I mean come on, a review is a review), but they update that site like a motherfucker. News, interviews, lots of good info and some intriguing articles every now and then. If it wasn't for Pitchfork I would be lost on lots of things. For example, I didn't know the Liars would be going on a world tour. I stop by Pitchfork, they inform me the Liars will be playing in my city in a month. Good times. No need for hate.

When in need for laughs, always look to Pitchfork for the goods, when desperate. This line is alone is almost as terrible as their Kid A review--if that is even possible.

"I dug the last two records' yawning chasms-- edgeless battlefields on which the band played out antagonistic relationships such as elegant triple-lead filigrees vs. gale-force feedback, or Sonic Youth vs. obsolescence."

Pitchfork is lame. I'd rather read the back of a Cheerios box.

I prefer Captain Crunch with the puzzles on the back because I cannot read.

Yeah, I know. Everyone in this thread is too indie for Pitchfork. The wannabe-hipster thing to do is to bash Pitchfork.

My legs. The circulation is cut off from the girl pants. Also, my back teeth hurt from the abuse I put on them from drinking too much coffee.

I LOVE that PITCHFORK exists!

There are at least 20 reviewers on that site. so you disagree with one reviewer? big fucking deal. grow the fuck up and accept the fact that pitchfork is aout there spreading the good word about indie innovative npoise, avant garde, music. who else is gonna do it?

you guys sound like the same pathetic hipper than thou scenesters that you accuse pitchfork of being. get a fucking grip and grow up.
people like you said the same dumb shit about SST and dischord back in the day.

dumb asses.

united we stand, divided we fall. infioghting among the underground is the single WORST thing about it, and what will always cause our downfall.

Either you are an idiot or you have never read more than one review of theirs.

It is not just one writer, it is the majority of them. Even Stylus is more readable than Pitchfork's garbage reviews. They are a laughing stock to any writer and to any music critic with brains and talent.

And enough already, do not resort to the "You are too hipster to like Pitchfork because they are hipsters that promote indie acts," routine, because it is stupid.

pitchfork gave the ying yang twins' "wait (the whisper song)" something along the lines of an 8+ review. i think that says it all.

(and don't get me wrong, i love that song to death, but it's not deserving of any sort of substantial rating)

I don't even know what Pitchfork is. All I'm saying is that a review is a review.

Music critics with brains and talent?

Isn't that an oxymoron?
