Is this the closest music reviewing has come to avant-garde literature? I would love it if more album reviews were like this.

far the fuck out. i would love to be given free creative license like this, to just rave about albums i like in whatever kind of overblown, insane poetic language i like.

this shit is probably my nominee for the most like "avant-garde literature" though. so fucking meta, this guy had some killer joke reviews.

that review rocks

Yeah, dude was pretty great. Has written some of the more absurd scathing reviews I've seen on there as well.

Decent example:

http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/8896-year-of-the-rabbit/

"Which brings us to the lyrics, which are platitudinally freighted in from a Los Angeles high school freshman's algebra notebook, replete with bourgeois drug references and fashionable apathetic musings. Who needs the third person? Never YOTR. "I can't break out/ From this blanket of doubt/ Got me trapped in a maze of shadows." "If I'm trying to be hidden/ You still see me.../ If my whole world is crashing it won't matter/ I can keep it together when you are here." The latter lines are from "Hold Me Up", the record's requisite acoustic-with-strings moment, and break from open discourse on feeling down, getting picked up, not giving a fuck, and keeping it together amidst so much estrangement. (I hope I didn't just inadvertently plagiarize anything from them.) I'm still not sure which bear more of a striking resemblance to each other-- the songs or the band members."

trolololol

haha that's great. i think the review i posted in OP is a great way of describing a lot of exotic, tribal hypnagogic pop (james ferraro, spencer clark, etc.).
>>
>>61596301
i agree, and i like that the reviewer just really fucking embraced it and almost totally shunned any conventional description.

i mean, you could probably accomplish more or less the same thing with some appropriate sub-genre tags, but that isn't near as fun.
