Pitchfork: Album Reviews: Girls: Album

Anyone care to comment on Album's inclusion in the 2009 pantheon of + 9.0 albums alongside Grizzly Bear, Dirty projectors and Animal Collective? Another Pitchfork controversy?

Sample song

While I tend to hate Pitchfork and hardly ever agree with their album reviews, I actually liked the song you posted and I am actually going to by Album now, because this is exactly my kind of music, bouncy, sunshiny indie-pop with a slight lo-fi feel. However I don't know where pitchfork get's off ranking Animal Collective and Dirty Projectors with a 9.0, because the new Animal Collective isn't nearly as good as Feels or Strawberry Jam, it isn't memorable at all with songs that never actually stuck with me and while the Dirty Projectors album is good, it certainly doesn't deserve a 9.0 +.

Lust for Life took some getting use to but I really like how it progressed. It had pretty much everything I like to hear in a song, although I can't say I'm huge on the vocals. I'll be checking this one out, what Pitchfork thinks is irrelevant to me anyways, they gave Eskimo Snow a 6.9. :|
