How is it that for Pitchfork this album is perfect and better than Let It Be by The Beatles?
yeah yeah pfork gave it a 10 (and they just re-scored Madonna dropping an 8.7 this passed Sunday). These guys were CRAZY live back in the day. Swapping instruments throughout, destroying stages and ears along the way.

This album comes out swinging and doesn't let up much. Good old classic indie ROCK record.
The most baffling 10 that Pitchfork has ever given. It's a solid album, but it's legacy will be head-scratching review all those years ago.
P4k then tried to overcorrect the effects of this score by giving middling reviews to every one of their albums to follow, despite not really being that much worse than this.
This is a great blend of post hardcore and indie rock. It takes the beautifully serene aspects of one and wonderfully mixes it with the harshness of the other.
I don't see this as a 10 like Pitchfork does but I do see it as a fucking blast
