Pitchfork is too cool for you

On second thought, I will comment on the quote I posted here yesterday. Why would the reviewer praise Metallica’s music so much (”talent for writing incredible, theatrical pieces of music”, “best heavy metal in existence”) and then up and call then “bad”? Seems to me that he’s got the mentality of, well, since they’re so “unstylish”, they can’t be good even if I happen to like a couple of their pieces. Or even if they are among the best of their genre. I’m too cool to like those has-beens. I’m hipper than thou.

Man, fuck that.

On a completely unrelated note: here’s a nice Godspeed You Black Emperor! FAQ, courtesy of the gybe! mailing list.
