Pitchfork reviews
« on: August 14, 2017, 09:10:33 AM »
I believe that this has been discussed here before, but why does pitchfork hate the Melvins so much? You'd think they would at least dig them *sometimes*- an independent band releases weird, avant-garde metal. That's the stuff pitchfork usually loves (when not covering mainstream hip hop).

The Dale review seems especially mean: http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/dale-crover-melvins-the-fickle-finger-of-fatea-walk-with-love-and-death/

Not to mention, the writer seems to be pretty poorly informed in general - The nirvana stuff is such old hat, acting like Houdini is their only point of reference, and immediately talking about Colossus in regards to weirder Melvins projects as if they havent done anything else unusual. Plus, the weird dale drum interludes seem to go right over the writer's head. That record is cool, people.

I mean, why the beef, man?
