THANK YOU SO MUCH

had you not brought this to my attention i would have continued regarding their highly publicized but never criticized reviews as gospel.

perchance you could start another thread as to whether or not fire is still burning hot when one's hand is placed betwixt its flames?

I don't read Pitchfork or for that matter, the music press in general. To be honest, i don't see the point. I'm capable of forming my own opinions and so the opinions of others, especially faceless strangers I know nothing about don't matter to me one little bit.

However, even from my limited exposure to Pitchfork I do wonder why they publish reviews such as these. That Audioslave one for a start is an absolute joke. It may be a fairly novel idea, but giving me some info on the album and maybe an opinion might at least make the whole concept of a review a worthwhile one.

I think ripping on Pitchfork has now officially become such a popular pastime that the site is about to achieve "so unhip it's cool" status.

i think the whole point with the Audioslave reviews is that for the most part it's not the kind of album or band that the average target reader for Pitchfork would give a crap about, so why should they? especially not in 2005. i mean really, why would you go to a place known for reviewing independent and less than mainstream releases for a blatantly mainstream supergroup's 2nd release.

i must say the lyrical replies were quite funny. Cornell's double baked lyrics worked phenomenally well in Soundgarden but then again Thayil studied Philosophy in university as opposed to Political Science like Morello. a forced fit will never be as smooth as a natural one.

I think someone has this as a signature here, but to reiterate it:

"Rock journalism is people who can't write interviewing people who can't talk for people who can't read."

EDIT: To tell you the truth, I think the anti-afro thing going on is a little unfair, as i've always wanted hair like Cedric's, rather than overly large short ginger hair.
but still, funny article!
