I didn't think Discovery was that good and I didn't think RAM was that bad tbh, like it's at least a solid 7

Their quote is really pretentious lol

Lana having a bit of last laugh cause she got trasssshhhhed when she first came out. Now that album is considered highly influential and the new girls are reflective of that.

Even Charli XCX is getting some love because I think her music doesn't get appreciated, which granted I'll admit its an acquired taste because I use to call it artificial-sweetener pop.

Daft Punk - Random Access Memories (2013): From 8.8 to 6.8

Good I never got the hype for it.

pitchfork is so irrelevant now it's actually funny to think back on a time where a 0.0 could legit ruin a career lol

tbh it's been too long since they've truly gone for the jugular, they hand out a 7ish to basically everything by default now

their numerical scores never make sense in relation to the review itself, like on the rare occasion i read their bs i'll read something where the review makes it sound GOD AWFUL and then like u said it's a 7 and i'm like lol what

think they claim that the scores are done by panel while the written review is the product of a single writer, but also… clearly they don't have a problem futzing with the scores lol
