for the moment one of the best albums of 2020, top 3 for me
3w
pretty sure nothing else released this year is gonna top this
1mo
Those who lower the user rating for the album know exactly that this album is above the whole world of music

Oof the 84 hurts.

For Her gives me shivers

It clicked and now I'm crying

That 8.5 is sad.
4mo
That 85 :(

2.5 weeks later and I still get the same chills I got the first time I listened to it...
4mo
200 likes!!!
5mo
the fantano discussion board is still going with this one
5mo
Based on my calculations, this will drop to an 86 really soon
5mo
if this album hits an 85 on audience, then i'm deleting this site.
5mo
fantano vs the world
5mo
Am i the only one who just noticed that The Idler Wheel wasn't in Anthony's top 200?
5mo
I give this community a light 3.
5mo
When a 9 drops the score lol.
5mo
Fantano should've give this NO GOOD tbh
5mo
The problem is not Fantano, he could give a 0 to this album and it still would be legitimate because it's his opinion, the problem is that when he gives a 7 all the Fantano fanboys that didn't even listen to the album will start giving this a 5 or 6 or a 7. It's a toxic fandom and that's a problem and it's not Fantano's problem, if you want to blame the lower score blame on that community.
I also bet that people take his reviews too seriosly I don't see people complaning so much about reviews from Rolling Stone or even Pitchfork.
5mo

Let Fontano return to rating Death Grips
5mo
fantano can hold this massive L
5mo
Anthony Fantano is currently trending higher on Twitter for underrating the album than Fiona Apple was when she actually dropped the album
5mo
The spectrum pulse review was pretty decent https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XguQnPdce6g&t=0s

Anthony wrongtano.
5mo
I'm new to this website and I've seen there's lot of discussions about Fantano. I follow his channel, sure he likes to give bizarre ratings to few albums but it never changed my opinion about the album I loved. Currents is a 10 for me and Fantano can't change that by giving it a 7. Also, That's his own opinion which he explained it in this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PECeceTOCU8. He said that he never go "technical" for the album and it's just his preference or liking of the album, the score is based on.
5mo
Anthony Fantano single handedly dropped the critic score of this by 2 points
5mo
People who change their opinion bc of the Needledrop review have no potential ๐Ÿ˜‰
5mo
This is what happens when all the kids are stuck at home and can't go to school thanks to the pandemic.

I was actually very interested to see what he would say and while he pointed what I could find negative in the album (a bit too crafty, not that huge sound, not the most experimental thing, not enough cohesive, etc) ... his justifications are bizarre ... is it the point to do the most crazy album ? No. Tracks have no variations ? Well this wasn't a complain in Rina and Dua lipe albums ... he analyzed very specific tracks rather than interesting in the entire message throught the tracks. He also said that she didn't push enough the things ... which is pretty funny because For Her is his least fav track but she did push herself emotionally A LOT. The tom waits comparison ...

I see what he wants to say but the justifications : half-baked.
5mo
guys why did melon say fiona apple should've been choked to death as a child omg i can't believe he did that!!
5mo
Where does Fantano live??? I just WANNA TALK
5mo
Can anyone give me directions to Kmart? I don't think this is Kmart.
5mo
If you engage in this type of discussion you're only making everything worse (including me).
5mo
Comments section should stop being a Needledrop anticipation/discussion board.
5mo
Who can’t believe Fantano said ‘Harvey Weinstein good man’ in his review. Also fema I’m done.
5mo
I feel like Fiona's older fans are the ones that are not liking this that much. I have never been much of a fan, I don't dislike any of her albums but The Idler Wheel was the first one I really enjoyed before this. And this just blew my mind.
5mo
fema i'm done
5mo
fema i'm done
5mo
Only Fantano could write a review that would drop the critic and user score at the same time
5mo
It's been one hour since Melon dropped his review and the score is already dropping...
5mo
Are people really getting worked up over a 7, which is a passable rating? Or better yet, getting worked up over someone else’s personal opinion and views?
5mo
I gotta agree with the melon on this one
5mo
fema i'm done

BAD MELON
NO
BAD FANTANO BAD
GO TO THE TIME OUT CHAIR
5mo
What the fuck
5mo
Fantano has worst taste than ARTV
5mo
I remember when fantano reviewed the ooz and said almost the exact same things about that album lmao
5mo
What the fuck
5mo
As much as I kinda disagree with him, A 7 IS STILL A POSITIVE SCORE PEOPLE!
5mo
The melon has spoken, the album is NOT GOOD
5mo
People out here acting like Fantano gave it a 3 or something. At what point did a 7/10 become a negative score? Just because it isn't as desirable as a 9 or a 10 doesn't mean it isn't positive. And even still, who the fuck cares what some bald guy on the internet thinks about the album? If you love the album and think it's one of the greatest you've ever heard then him giving it a 7 shouldn't change that for you. And if the user score drops because of it, so what? It may be annoying, but it's not like that's going to detract from how much you personally enjoy the album, right?
5mo
I mean to be fair, The more we care about the user score, the more hypocritical we become
5mo
Fantano about to get people mad with this one
5mo
there are times I actually think fantano does this to be controversial, even though I think he's genuine about it.
5mo
RIP it was good while it lasted
5mo
He rating Fiona as much as Dua Lipa with Future Nostalgia. Kill me.
5mo
fantano is a stinky poopface >:(
5mo
FANTANO
FUCKKKKKKKKK
5mo
Hahahahaahah Fantano just trying to be a contrarian. Totally disagree with his review
5mo
I’m done. I unfollowed Anthony. Thanks for ruining this album’s legendary status that it deserves, guess it’ll drop to a frickin 84 or something now because people are gonna think “oh maybe it’s bad.” I don’t understand how consistently, females in music make improvements off of an album he adores, and then he doesn’t like it. I’m convinced he’s an idiot. Mitski, Angel Olsen, FKA Twigs, now Fiona Apple (ON HER MASTERPIECE). I’m done.
5mo
not even 5 minutes y'all
5mo
The score already dropped
5mo
a lot of people are going to be pissed at fantano lmao
5mo
Ready to watch Fantano fanboys lowering the score...
5mo
Fantano really gave it a 7 ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
5mo
I can't believe this but at the same time I saw it coming
5mo
A lot of yall will be quiet when she wins the Pultizer prize...ah thats history!
5mo
feel like Fantano's review will negatively affect the average no matter what score he gives it just based on what I've been seeing on reddit.......
5mo

The truth is that today the Pitchfork rating is the most important grade of the year and trolls like fontano are not taken seriously
5mo
Anthony said it was grueling to shoot his review. Oh boy it's gonna be unpredictable
5mo
this album would be even more perfect for a Paul Thomas Anderson movie
5mo
Brad gives the album a 100 and the score goes back up to 88. Coincidence? I think not!
5mo
Because I'm here to talk about music, if you like unconventional and punchy production, try "Who kill" from Tune-Yards. She may not have the same impact in the lyrical department but sonically this is also very bold and the album I think that is the most "close" in term of production (Ok this is NOT the same but you see the idea ... I hope haha !)
5mo
The production aesthetic reminds me a bit of last year's COIN COIN Chapter Four: Memphis
5mo
To give some perspective, there are only 11 albums from the entire decade of the 2010's that scored higher than an 87... and 2 of those albums didn't have many scores. This album scoring an 87 will most likely put it among the top 10-20 albums of this current decade when all is said and done.
5mo
so what will be the reaction if the baldman decides to give it a 8 or less? apparently the only thing important about this album is the user score and his for y'all, nobody is actually talking about music lol
5mo
people afraid of giving high scores this year, should be a 90 easily
5mo
yeah so you people apparently don’t know good groundbreaking music if it slaps you in the face. 87 now good lord. hopefully Fantano gives it a 10 so you lot start thinking “NEVERMIND IT IS A 10 ISNT IT OOPS”
5mo
Even Jon from ARTV love this album hell yeahh

What!... what is going on here my goodness why? What's the hype?

"Yesterday was the biggest day in AOTY's history. Congrats everyone!" -Rob
5mo
cover art has grown on me quite a bit
5mo
I'm worried about Fantano, last time Pitchfork gave out a 10, he gave out a 6...
5mo
"For Her" should be illegal
5mo
ah god it’s at an 88 now what is wrong with you people.
5mo
The user score will rise to or above 90 after fantano reviews this album
5mo
NME is literaly on crack, last year they gave OZZY FUCKING OSBOURNE STAR OF TROLLS WORLD TOUR a 100, but hey, Fiona Apple? nah bro, shes sitting with the 80 crowd
5mo
where were you during the Fiona Apple bot invasion of 2020
5mo
Holy shit guys.
5mo
Yall better bring this back to at least a 90 smh
5mo
All the haters of the album are going to be quaking once Fantano drops a 9 or 10 on this. He’s gonna love it for it’s messages and innovation probably.
5mo
Her repetition of phrases reminds me of only one other thing I’ve heard all year. Uzi’s Eternal Atake ๐Ÿคฃ

5mo
this is how i felt when i listened to tpab the day it came out. just feels significant
5mo
Why are "worst artworks" and "best artworks" real tags? Also, the cover is great...
5mo
I have to say that the whole rating thing, as funny at it can be when it's healthy, is becoming painful to watch since some releases such as The strokes. Hype is another thing but the rating are getting on the nerve of some users and is so biased by some overly negative and positive waves. Not that it was not a thing before, but men ... what is so interesting in the neighbourhood ?with an artist like Fiona, I expect to see actual talking about the album, some quotes or facts about the production, the lyrics, the instrumentation. Not a wikipedia page about her career, not "oh I like it, see ya" then being bombed in first page (no shade, just truth). Maybe my expectation are completely delusional and stupid, whatever. Just saying with hot tea
5mo
oh shit it's below 90
5mo
man if this isn’t your aoty and something like theweeknd, tame impala, or the strokes is, then there’s no helping you.
5mo
I think its been 10 years since pfork gave a new album a 10.0... Kanye's Dark Fantasy. Am I missing anything?
5mo
How is this not a must hear yet? This is literally the most critically acclaimed album in a decade.
5mo
Critics scores are insane๐Ÿ˜ฑ
5mo
Crying tears of joy for Pitchfork’s 10. The world needed this right now ๐Ÿ˜ญ
5mo
Pitchfork's first 10 for a new album in 10 years. Astonishing.
5mo
"Good morning, good morning, you r*ped me in the same bed your daughter was born in" gets me EVERY TIME
5mo
I know there are people down there giving this absurdly low scores just to get the average down and saying amateurish kiddy shit like “This just a women screaming and wierd shit happens for 51 minites XP”. Multiple listens are something you probably have time for. It’s also, you know, what album listeners should actually do in the first place.
5mo
I fucking hate NME. The one time where you could actually give a 10
5mo
anyone giving this below a 70 is sketchy af and i dont like u
5mo
It’s time to spread like strawberries, girls!!
5mo
the fifth perfect score????
5mo
i will hate you all if by the end of all this the album doesn’t stay above at LEAST an 86. really should be an 88-90 average but i will take an 86 at least. anything less and you’re dead to me.
5mo
I really want Gavin to review this!!!!
5mo
some assface just gave this a 0 aand that fucked w the score this shit better stay above 90
5mo
Fantano is either giving this a 9 or a 6, i don't think i could see him going for anything else
5mo
Another 10/10 and simultaneously Best New Music rating from Pitchfork since MBTDF... this is wild.
5mo
JESUS (is king) PITCHFORK WITH THE 10
5mo
I have never seen so much praise for a new album.

Wowzers
5mo
HOLY SHIT PITCHFORK 10/10 WOW
5mo
Pitchfork's first 10/10 since MBDTF. I can't believe it.
5mo
Does it mean Fantano gonna give it 6/10?
5mo
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
5mo
LOL IT BEAT TPAB
5mo
Pitchfork's first 100 since MBDTF
5mo
A masterpiece!
5mo

5mo

5mo

5mo

5mo
I remember she said she was considering a photo of Harvey Weinstein with his walker as the album cover and thinking at the time that that was a little on the nose but, eh.
5mo
I'm so excited oh god
5mo
Ela tá chegando galeraaaa
5mo
the cover looks like macaroni art
5mo
holy fuck it's happening
5mo
L e a k e d.
5mo
Fetch a good cover
5mo
yeah I'm not loving this cover art like I normally do :(
5mo
well I was already anticipating this last year but was alarmed it's coming this week with a weird article interviewing Fiona about the album in which it also included Fiona Apple talking about how toxic her relationship with Paul Thomas Anderson was. Lol what type of article is that?
5mo
I am just left confused by that cover art
5mo
WHAT
5mo
yup, excited. went back and listened to "Tidal". so good
5mo
here comes another potentially 79
5mo
God is good to us.
5mo
