Pitchfork Needs to shut the fuck up

So today I stumbled upon Pitchfork's review of the first 4 Run-DMC albums.
http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/record-reviews/r/run-dmc/run-dmc-king-of-rock-raising-hell-tougher-than-leather.shtml

This is how they rated it
Run-DMC: 8.1
King of Rock: 5.7
Raising Hell: 7.7
Tougher Than Leather: 6.4

That's right. They think it's all mediocre at best. This is why "hipsters" on the Internets shouldn't review hip-hop. Cause undoubtedly, they say this sucks while the best shit ever is...what? Kanye West, Buck 65, Atmosphere, Aesop Rock...I mean come on here.

I never expected Pitchfork to have any idea what the hell they're talking about, but this is just too much.

Also, new rule: you can't have people who have literally built shrines on the internets to an artist review their new album. Yes, I'm talking about "Late Menstruation" by Kanye West. 9.5? Now that's some bullshit.

I'll co-sign. One thing though, I've been following Breihan's Village Voice Blog (Status Aint Hood). He's not the kind of Pitchfork hip hop reviewer who praises only lame white nerd rap; he's the other kind: the kind who is enamored with (mostly terrible) crack/hustler rap. Perhaps it allows him to set himself apart from his peers who also just started listening to rap, giving him cool/liberal points by elevating the exotic, dangerous, "authentic" black ghetto dweller as opposed to the self-deprecating angsty suburban white rap nerd.

Terrible music that exaggerates the opposite of your lifestyle? Hell yeah son.


You know I'm jamming Morrisey on my way to the liquor store to take back beer bottles in exchange for a turkey sandwich.
