I am always in awe of Ian's ability to confidently have public opinions despite consenting to the making of this video.

Hum got tranched by Ian Cohen, of course, who spent a lot of the review talking about the bands Hum influenced that Cohen also happens to like. Deftones come up in the first sentence, he vaguely references younger Polyvinyl bands (i.e., American Football), he gets in a bunch of his newer references (Greet Death, etc.). It's also the second Inlet review that brings up Collective Soul, for some reason.

Anyway, if Hum's influenced by any of the bands they influenced, it's Pelican or some other doom/stoner metal type bands. I'd still rather not have the entire discussion of the record come down to "We need to situate this album within names you/I know."

i think it's time someone just start a paywalled site in the vein of the athletic. might as well make localised versions as well (again, like the athletic) since the alt weekly is pretty much dead too

on the one hand i feel bad bullying that dude but noone comes out of this era of pfork looking good especially for the extent to which they aided the corporate exploitation of "indie rock" *extremely ott voice

I think i attended that pitchfork festival actually if it was the one with anco and fleet foxes

the other thing he does is spouting emo history with records that have next-to-nothing to do with emo. the guy can't help himself i guess.

the (2500 WORD!) intro for the completely superfluous top 100 emo songs he did somehow still did this. it was so clearly centering emo within him growing up in the early 2000s Taking Back Sunday kind of stuff, that while the most "popular" emo, it's also so 3rd level referential. his taste in music exists only in reflection, so it's not wild he can only write in that too. he's also taking some weird pride in this being his "beat" which is a real bummer in 2020.

I didn't make it through all of Cohen's Rising Tide retrospective, but this part was telling

Contrary to what you might assume from basically everything I’ve written at this website (and most others), I had no idea what emo was in 2000. I’ll certainly admit to living a sheltered existence at the time, while also reminding y’all just how little regard the mainstream press had for emo even during its supposed Golden Age. Look, I watched MTV something like four hours and a day and was just as reliant on alt-rock radio. I read every issue of Rolling Stone cover-to-cover, probably multiple times, and kept up with Spin, NME, and whatever else could be found in the periodical rack at Borders. I was aware of Pitchfork and bought Dismemberment Plan and Walt Mink CDs on their endorsement, but hadn’t delved enough into their archives to see what “indie rock” really thought of emo.

June 20, 2000 was like most other Tuesdays in those years as I took my weekly trip to Plan 9 in Charlottesville to spend what little disposable income I had — on this particular release day, I had my sights set firmly on White Pony. It didn’t take long for me to be distracted by what I was hearing on the store’s PA


I don't think you needed to be there in the 80s with Rites of Spring or in the mid 90s with SDRE to be an authority on emo (not that I want to be an authority on emo, and I'll readily cop to Cohen knowing way more about almost everything post-2001 than I do), but everything comes back to this early 2000s frame for him. In a way, it's more of a late 90s zine / Pitchfork style of writing than the current "bland objectivity for SEO" approach, which is why him getting all huffy about the Weakerthans review is odd.

Reconstruction Site was a big record for me and I remember feeling like 5.6 was generous for a website like Pitchfork back then. it of course made it 10x harder to recommend it to friends because it wasn't "approved" or maybe they were just too busy with those BNMs to care.

consistently

The Passion Of is the sound of art-punk, industrial, ambient, techno, and glam imploding on themselves.


how often do you read a review where the sound is of "X_Y_Z collapsing in on itself"
