"1983" got reviewed at everyone's favorite snobby online publication. It got a 5.8 out of 10. I'm sure a lot of people here would be mad at that.

the fact that an instrumental hip hop album by a debut indie artist can score a review in such a popular website is not bad at all. lotus has done well with 1983, and plenty of good reviews.

well Aloe Blacc got 7-point-something. 5.8 sounds about right.

Pitchfork always seemed to urk me though. What miserable pricks do the reviews? I guess that's their trademark, people know them to be kind of "cold". At least, me, anyway.

Pitchfork's reviews don't matter to me anymore. Checking it now for me is just to see how ridiculous the daily reviews are.

According to Pitchfork - Young Jeezy, Clipse, The Game, Justin Timberlake, Cam'ron are all > than Murs 3:16

BULLSHIT

You can usually tell if a pitchfork reviewer is on top of his shit, err not. There are many good reviews and a few hit or miss. However must of the time reviewers have good knowledge of the music, and offer thought out explanations into what "say" album is lacking

Those albums sell millions of copies, and half the kids you know get down with them. I know I'm digging the new JT jam. Those artists albums are masterpieces towards their target audience, and have achieved the goal of capturing mass audience. Comparing certain albums isn't fair, they function on different levels, with different intentions. Madlib knows he's not banging out the next black album, or Ludacris best seller, but he does his own thing. Underground hip hop is feisty, MC's clawing their way to a style, producers trying to do something different. The playing field down here is a war-zone, and sometimes it's hard to clearly define a winner. It's my opinion outside the public eye it's more difficult to gain a bangin review, your being compared to so many great efforts in music. Granted there have been many classic albums in the games larger spectrum. But it's a tougher scale for artists in the small, just by sheer quantity of musicians, and material coming out which doesn't go triple platinum. Until they've stood the test of time will you really know. Look at rolling stone early reviews of black sabbath, case closed.

great point, but on a personal level, down to what I simply liked more, it's not even a competetion

and btw most of those albums are pretty good. I like the Game and I can't hate on JT either
