I suppose that guy gets paid by the word.
Honestly, I'm kiddin and I don't want to sound "disrespectful", coz that's a sort of "recap" written by a sy fan after all, but it's quite an unnecessary read for people who knows SY a bit.
I can see it have some "usefulness" for younger pitchfork audience perhaps, but I think a good portion of those who know Albini enough to give a damn about what he says do also know SY a bit...dunno.
I'm ranty.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's a case of the other members having to keep their day jobs, simply because Albini won't leave his. Either way, are bands like High on Fire, or Clutch any less 'indie' because they make a living touring, rather than through a regular day job? Albini's had this weird hard-on for some idealised blue-collar bullshit from the beginning. He should fuck off and become a miner and stop ruining Stooges albums.

I don't know, I think this is a perfectly reasonable and realistic attitude to have. I would imagine the pressure of having to depend on your band for a living would increase the chances of the band breaking up, and if you're friends with the people in your band it could also ruin the friendship.

I see where Albini is coming from, respect that point of view and feel its not a slap in the face of SY, all he is doing is hypathetically asserting his stance and opinions towards the past actions of another band. People do this all the time and its not a big deal, Albini just said what he thought and I'm sure SY doesn't think any less of him.

Even if he meant it as a slap in the face (which he clearly didn't), and even if the Youth DID take it as offensive...why would it even matter?

Hm, that's quite an interesting question. Why does anything matter? Why even care about anything, or talk about anything? Why have an opinion? Why even think? Why even exist?

All of which has absolutely everything and nothing to do with my original question.

I think the biggest reason not to read them is that just about everyone knows that their reviews are based 100% on payola -- and yet people still take their reviews seriously! The day a band gets reviewed on pitchfork, there's about 500 posts on last.fm with people debating the score... "OH MY GOD, I CAN;T BELIEVE IT ONLY GOT AN 8.3. IT TOTALLY DESERVED AN 8.8!" ... Horrid site. I mean, I guess, in the end, it's understandable if people want to read them -- stupidity can be funny -- but to take them seriously? That's what I really gotta question... one read of their review of NYC GHOSTS AND FLOWERS made me not only question the website and the writer, but to question the English language itself.
