I'll go look now, their reviews are always a cheap laugh.

Edit: That wasn't funny! I am disappointed in Pitchfork! Annoyingly i haven't heard their latest album, but i'm sure its far better than Battles' album.

Their review of Frances was just bad. The majority of the review wasn't even discribing the album. Hell they were so lazy they didn't even try to elaborate on why it got such a low rating.

And thats why i despise Pitchfork. It promotes SOME good music but their reviews are useless to me.

Kudos on the album in your sig by the way, i'm listening to it a lot too.

Pitchfork review:
Pointless psuedo-intellectual intro. Ridiculous comment on music. Stupid generilization about band's fans. Repeat 5 times.

Known in some Indie circles as "The only good prog band"
You know, I do like a lot of prog. I would completely agree with you in that bands like King Crimson and Can and Henry Cow are far, far better than run-of-the-mill stuff like Modest Mouse and Okkervil River and Vampire Weekend and bands of that ilk. I just find TMV, specifically their last album, to be absolutely awful. As a big ATDI fan, TMV are disappointing to me. It's just the way it is...other people might, and clearly do, feel differently. Good.

I really do like prog music, admittedly in fairly small doses, but I appreciate it's artistic merit. King Crimson and Can are high on my list of favourite bands and they are the prog bands I continually go back to. To be honest, I don't think our tastes in music are too different, boo boo. I don't want to continue arguing this, as like most arguments it's a trivial matter. I accept that you, and others, like TMV and I respect that you enjoy their music. It's just not for me.
