Someone put together a neat little list with all the albums that Pitchfork has given a perfect 10 to.
The reason why this sucks is because it was prompted by Kanye West receiving a 10 for an album that I’m not even going to name.
I love Pitchfork (sometimes) but I hate Kanye (all the time).
A TEN ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? ARRRRRRRRRRRGHHHH!
Me thinks he’s paying for it. Seriously.
Kanye’s currency isn’t music it’s canned controversy.
So when jerks like me flip out that he’s in league with Coltrane and Otis Redding, guess what happens?
Kanye wins. Which means everyone but morons lose.
But hey, that’s life kids. If you want to make a lot of money in America.
Rip people off and be an asshat!
(And if you’re wondering. Yes. Pitchfork has taken money to review albums before.)
What do you think?
I seriously think that there has been a problem with rating and quantifying rap records for a long time.
If you think Kanye is awesome but only in the Black Eyed Peas sense – fine.
It’s throw away trash that you shouldn’t think twice about. Run to it with headphones on. Dance to it at a club that you’ll whine about tomorrow. That’s what it’s for.
But seriously….how are you going to compare any Kanye album to James Brown?
EXPLAIN THAT TO ME??????????
