Hate's a fairly strong word.

I'm quite capable of thinking they're all a bunch of wankers without needing to expend the necessary effort to hate them.

i look at it every couple months for the news... Their reviewers are up their own arses and rarely get it right, so to save me from getting mad I simply don't read them anymore...

What scares me is there are A LOT of indie wannabe hipsters that take what they say as gospel...

I hate indie wannabe hipsters

It`s almost enough to make me want to buy a Westlife album just to distance myself from it

Their reviews are pretty hit or miss. Sometimes you get a reviewer that actually knows what he's talking about, but a lot of the reviewers just suck. And that end of the year list was almost scary bad. Not really a great place to find out new music, either, for me it goes like this...

Blogs write about what we'll be listening to tomorrow.
Pitchfork and the like write about what we're listening to today.
The British press write about what we were listening to yesterday.
