The Onion on Pitchfork

The funniest Onion article I’ve read in a while: Pitchfork Gives Music 6.8.

The best line, quoting Ryan Schreiber: “In the end, though music can be brilliant at times, the whole medium comes off as derivative of Pavement.”

  1. Pitchfork has value. It’s great for keeping track of what’s happening in the indie/alternative music world. I’ve found some great music thanks to them. But, yeah, their reviews suck more often than not.

  2. Absolutely perfect. Pitchfork is great for current events but utterly idiotic and overblown in their reviews.

  3. This line killed me:

    “Coming in at an exhausting 7,000 years long, music is weighed down by a few too many mid- tempo tunes, most notably ‘Liebesträume No. 3 in A flat’ by Franz Liszt and ‘Closing Time’ by ’90s alt-rock group Semisonic,” Schreiber wrote.
