I don't get these high critic scores. Is it because they're a punk band that's close to the UK? I have the feeling that a lot of these publications (especially NME) give high praise to the bands that fit this sound and origin. Like, this is good, but really nothing special.

Don't worry. Pitchfork will likely IDLES/Protomartyr them shortly.

@dts87 shit, you're probably right. I haven't listened to that Protomartyr album (I promise I will), but that IDLES album was rated way too low by them.

Pitchfork will like this more than IDLES because there’s a ton of lyrical depth. They didn’t however include this on their 5 albums out today.

This is like the 14th 100 NME have given this year lol

Is it only that many? 😂

Interesting, I expected some bull crap statement but that actually is a pretty legitimate criticism

While I do really like this album in particular, I definitely agree with what you said about NME's bias overall.
