the fantano discussion board is still going with this one
1mo
Based on my calculations, this will drop to an 86 really soon
1mo
if this album hits an 85 on audience, then i'm deleting this site.
1mo
fantano vs the world
1mo
Am i the only one who just noticed that The Idler Wheel wasn't in Anthony's top 200?
1mo
I give this community a light 3.
1mo
When a 9 drops the score lol.
1mo
Fantano should've give this NO GOOD tbh
1mo
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.
1mo

Let Fontano return to rating Death Grips
1mo
fantano can hold this massive L
1mo
Anthony Fantano is currently trending higher on Twitter for underrating the album than Fiona Apple was when she actually dropped the album
1mo
The spectrum pulse review was pretty decent https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XguQnPdce6g&t=0s

Anthony wrongtano.
1mo
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.
1mo
Anthony Fantano single handedly dropped the critic score of this by 2 points
1mo
People who change their opinion bc of the Needledrop review have no potential 😉
1mo
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.
1mo
guys why did melon say fiona apple should've been choked to death as a child omg i can't believe he did that!!
1mo
Where does Fantano live??? I just WANNA TALK
1mo
Can anyone give me directions to Kmart? I don't think this is Kmart.
1mo
If you engage in this type of discussion you're only making everything worse (including me).
1mo
Comments section should stop being a Needledrop anticipation/discussion board.
1mo
Who can’t believe Fantano said ‘Harvey Weinstein good man’ in his review. Also fema I’m done.
1mo
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.
1mo
fema i'm done
1mo
fema i'm done
1mo
Only Fantano could write a review that would drop the critic and user score at the same time
1mo
It's been one hour since Melon dropped his review and the score is already dropping...
1mo
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?
1mo
I gotta agree with the melon on this one
1mo
fema i'm done

BAD MELON
NO
BAD FANTANO BAD
GO TO THE TIME OUT CHAIR
1mo
What the fuck
1mo
Fantano has worst taste than ARTV
1mo
I remember when fantano reviewed the ooz and said almost the exact same things about that album lmao
1mo
What the fuck
1mo
As much as I kinda disagree with him, A 7 IS STILL A POSITIVE SCORE PEOPLE!
1mo
The melon has spoken, the album is NOT GOOD
1mo
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?
1mo
lol
1mo
I mean to be fair, The more we care about the user score, the more hypocritical we become
1mo
Fantano about to get people mad with this one
1mo
there are times I actually think fantano does this to be controversial, even though I think he's genuine about it.
1mo
RIP it was good while it lasted
1mo
He rating Fiona as much as Dua Lipa with Future Nostalgia. Kill me.
1mo
fantano is a stinky poopface >:(
1mo
FANTANO
FUCKKKKKKKKK
1mo
Hahahahaahah Fantano just trying to be a contrarian. Totally disagree with his review
1mo
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.
1mo
not even 5 minutes y'all
1mo
The score already dropped
1mo
a lot of people are going to be pissed at fantano lmao
1mo
A
S e v e n ! ?
1mo
Ready to watch Fantano fanboys lowering the score...
1mo
Fantano really gave it a 7 😂😂
1mo
I can't believe this but at the same time I saw it coming
1mo
A lot of yall will be quiet when she wins the Pultizer prize...ah thats history!
1mo
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.......
1mo

The truth is that today the Pitchfork rating is the most important grade of the year and trolls like fontano are not taken seriously
1mo
Anthony said it was grueling to shoot his review. Oh boy it's gonna be unpredictable
1mo
this album would be even more perfect for a Paul Thomas Anderson movie
1mo
Brad gives the album a 100 and the score goes back up to 88. Coincidence? I think not!
1mo
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 !)
1mo
The production aesthetic reminds me a bit of last year's COIN COIN Chapter Four: Memphis
1mo
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.
1mo
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
1mo
people afraid of giving high scores this year, should be a 90 easily
1mo
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”
1mo
Even Jon from ARTV love this album hell yeahh
1mo
[hidden]
1mo
What!... what is going on here my goodness why? What's the hype?
1mo
She makes us wait for 8 years and she was still able to live up to the hype. Fiona is a GOD!
1mo
She probably eats apples
1mo
"Yesterday was the biggest day in AOTY's history. Congrats everyone!" -Rob
1mo
cover art has grown on me quite a bit
1mo
I'm worried about Fantano, last time Pitchfork gave out a 10, he gave out a 6...
1mo
"For Her" should be illegal
1mo
ah god it’s at an 88 now what is wrong with you people.
1mo
The user score will rise to or above 90 after fantano reviews this album
1mo
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
1mo
where were you during the Fiona Apple bot invasion of 2020
1mo
Holy shit guys.
1mo
Yall better bring this back to at least a 90 smh
1mo
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.
1mo
Her repetition of phrases reminds me of only one other thing I’ve heard all year. Uzi’s Eternal Atake 🤣
1mo
Why is she so highly rated and how have I never heard of her
1mo
this is how i felt when i listened to tpab the day it came out. just feels significant
1mo
Why are "worst artworks" and "best artworks" real tags? Also, the cover is great...
1mo
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
1mo
oh shit it's below 90
1mo
man if this isn’t your aoty and something like theweeknd, tame impala, or the strokes is, then there’s no helping you.
1mo
I think its been 10 years since pfork gave a new album a 10.0... Kanye's Dark Fantasy. Am I missing anything?
1mo
How is this not a must hear yet? This is literally the most critically acclaimed album in a decade.
1mo
Critics scores are insane😱
1mo
Crying tears of joy for Pitchfork’s 10. The world needed this right now 😭
1mo
Pitchfork's first 10 for a new album in 10 years. Astonishing.
1mo
"Good morning, good morning, you r*ped me in the same bed your daughter was born in" gets me EVERY TIME
1mo
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.
1mo
I fucking hate NME. The one time where you could actually give a 10
1mo
anyone giving this below a 70 is sketchy af and i dont like u
1mo
It’s time to spread like strawberries, girls!!
1mo
the fifth perfect score????
1mo
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.
1mo
I really want Gavin to review this!!!!
1mo
some assface just gave this a 0 aand that fucked w the score this shit better stay above 90
1mo
Fantano is either giving this a 9 or a 6, i don't think i could see him going for anything else
1mo
Another 10/10 and simultaneously Best New Music rating from Pitchfork since MBTDF... this is wild.
1mo
JESUS (is king) PITCHFORK WITH THE 10
1mo
I have never seen so much praise for a new album.

Wowzers
1mo
HOLY SHIT PITCHFORK 10/10 WOW
1mo
Pitchfork's first 10/10 since MBDTF. I can't believe it.
1mo
Does it mean Fantano gonna give it 6/10?
1mo
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1mo
LOL IT BEAT TPAB
1mo
Pitchfork's first 100 since MBDTF
1mo
A masterpiece!
1mo
if it had been released last year, would it have been the best record of the decade?
1mo
IF PITCHFORK GAVE IT A 100 ITS BECAUSE SHIT JUST GOT REAL
1mo
THIS IS HISTORY
1mo

1mo

1mo

1mo
Yeah this cover art sucks but it's whatever
1mo
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.
1mo
I'm so excited oh god
1mo
Ela tá chegando galeraaaa
1mo

1mo
holy fuck it's happening
1mo
L e a k e d.
1mo
Fetch a good cover
1mo
yeah I'm not loving this cover art like I normally do :(
1mo
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?
1mo
I am just left confused by that cover art
1mo
WHAT
1mo
yup, excited. went back and listened to "Tidal". so good
1mo
here comes another potentially 79
1mo
God is good to us.
1mo

1mo
Finally! I can't wait to listen
