maybe it's because das racist are marketed specifically towards hipsters & ppl that read stereogum?

why would you market towards ppl who have a novelty song

seems like a very small niche

...

There is a difference between "trolling" (the blatantly overstated and hyperbolic comment I made about SALEM and racism way upthread that everyone ignored) and "making a joke" (my last post) that you might want to investigate.

Yeah, but the second I admit to liking anything on anticon. people start accusing me of a being a PM Dawn fan.

"laughing" or lol or something

But seriously folks, some albums if suddenly marketed to indie sites and reviewers/critics would get more acclaim, others might still get ignored (not enough genre specialist reviewers interested in stuff that's not hipster friendly)

curmudgeon, Wednesday, 8 December 2010 18:38 (seven years ago) Permalink

what's wrong w/ being a PM Dawn fan??

pretty wild that this Kanye record is the first record since, like, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot to really getting the indie sites to agree that the major labels sometimes make records better than we do

that's an interesting interpretation of the acclaim of YHF considering that the whole narrative of that album's success was "Warner Bros didn't know what a masterpiece they had on their hands, those bastards!"

Local Hardman (some dude), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 18:45 (seven years ago) Permalink

also "MBDTF's critical consensus is so much stronger than any previous Kanye record" is almost as shaky a premise as your "Fuck You is the most instantly acclaimed pop single since Hey Ya" thesis.

Local Hardman (some dude), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 18:46 (seven years ago) Permalink

i'm saying the critical consensus on indie sites like Pfork and Sgum is stronger this time out. The RS/Spin/Pazz crew was always in full force

xpost, fine then, chance to ca. 2001 Strokes/Kid A

Im taking this the opposite of Whiney -- most of these (strawmen) ppl think that kanye is just way better than all pop, smarter than all the other major label crap etc (peep the paste review) -- I don't think it has stereogum readers reconsidering the merits of major label pop

gimme schefter (J0rdan S.), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 18:55 (seven years ago) Permalink

It's his bon iver record!

Plus is this really getting more indie love than late reg?

gimme schefter (J0rdan S.), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 18:56 (seven years ago) Permalink

hasn't kanye always been the token pop/major label act in these lists?

i don't really believe many people on the staff of these indie sites have bothered with many other major label hip-hop/r&b/pop albums at all

What new record? There's one this year?

Fastnbulbous, Wednesday, 8 December 2010 19:02 (seven years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I don't see what's new about it. Critics have loved him since day one. He doesn't represent major-label hip hop anymore than Outkast do.

The baby boomers have defined everything once and for all (Dorianlynskey), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 19:02 (seven years ago) Permalink

Indie crits always loved Kanye but there was always this understood agreement that we has never better than Arcade Fire/AnCo/Antony/etc. I mean, when he tops the Pfork list its gonna be the first major label record to be #1 since Kid A, right? (i'm not gonna fact check this, so)

lol with Anco at #7 and Antony at #5 behind Kanye on that list

i would credit any minor bump in indie-love for kanye more to do with lazy crits feeling safe in raves than some sort of increased comfort with major label wares

Given the amount of tedious handwringing already should we push the Pitchfork list off into its own slurry ditch thread or something?

Curious what people think the most critically popular album of the year that you wouldn't have guessed would be one of the most critically popular albums of the year is

I mean more in a "hey who thought they'd step up their game" way than a "wtf is wavves doing here" way

funny to have spoon ride caboose at number 25 in the av club after their Remember The 90s guy claimed they're underappreciated for being so consistently perfect

also, da croup, my mind is still blown that anyone would give salem the time of day, but i should probably stop harping on that.
