I hate the format of that forum. I can't read more than three posts before giving up.

The reviewer mentions the Bukoswki reference and then pretends like Bukowski is highly regarded in nerdy english major circles. Bukowski is like Vietnam...the dude is just NOT taught in schools. In fact, an English Major was sitting next to me on a flight recently and she asked me what kind of authors I was into. She had never even heard of Bukowski. She graduates this year. Ahhh. Haha. I pointed her in the direction of "Post Office" and told her to walk into it with caution.


Yeah. A friend of mine was in this poetry class and he asked his professor what he thought of Bukowski. He hadn't even heard of him. Bukowski is pretty low-brow as far as poetry goes.


Wow. I definitely learned about Bukowski in a 10th grade creative writing class. Then again I had the most crazy and out of this world teacher. But still, the school still allowed her to incorporate it into her curriculum. He has also popped up in several college courses i've taken. This comes as a surprise to me. What kind of lame schools did these people go to. The college I went to had a whole class dedicated to bukowski.

We had a whole class dedicated to Gertrude Stein. Which I took. And it was life-changing! There's life before you read Gertrude Stein, then there's life after.

Thats what I always find very strange, when a reviewer on a site says:

"Sage Francis's strongest album to date"..... and then give it a lower grade (7.9) than AHD (8.0), Hope or some of the Sick Of...

That's just strange.


Not when you realize that different writers wrote those reviews (I think Rollie Pemberton wrote both the Hope and Sick Of... series reviews but my point still stands).

Pitchfork isn't a single entity, though their writers often share similar musical tastes. In this case though, I think it's a matter of different reviewers with different opinions using different standards of judgement/grading.

Would have been nice if Rollie reviewed this one too.

Okayplayer is weirdly closed-minded with music. If it's not OK approved many of them refuse to even listen.

I also feel uncomfortable reading anything race related on that site. Seems like just a place for a lot of people to say things they would never dream of saying in person.
