Anybody fancy a game of Pitchfork Predictor?

St. Vincent - 8.0

Calling it.


#142

I think you might be right…she’s reaching the decline in her “Pitchfork curve”


#143

Yeah this is based on the two songs she’s put out from it. Lot of press around this album because of her increased profile. And the fact this one’s EVEN MORE about sex than the last ones guys but… the new songs seem to lack a bit of edge. 8.0 in their world.


#144

there’s something depressing about people predicting disappointment with an 8/10 score.


#145

Don’t think either me or @GEOFF are doing that…


#146

No disappointment from me here. I don’t like St. Vincent at all. I just think it’s quite a fun game to play for some reason.


#147

nah I get it, it just seems weird to be predicting a fall off while she’s otherwise getting a very high score.


#148

What the fuck are you talking about? I’m just trying to guess what score those twats at Pitchfork will rate an album as, because I’ve got nothing better to do.


#149

Oh actually, I think I get you now.

Apologies for the sharp reply.


#150

It’s just a drop off from their last few scores for her, is all


#151

:joy: Jesus Christ Geoff


#152

Ha yeah - was meant to be a jovial ‘What the fuck’ but certainly didn’t come across that way. So yes apologies much deserved.

Quite a thing making a tit of yourself in the Pitchfork Predictor Thread, I must admit.


#153

8.0 isn’t exactly a very high score on PF anyway


#154

King Krule and St Vincent this week.

St Vincent: 8.3
King Krule 8.7


#155

King Krule got 9.0…so you weren’t far off.


#156

Close but no cigar :frowning:

Looking forward to listening to it on the way to work.


#157

Just a 7.6 for St Vinny.


#158

hehe they called the Daily Mail a tabloid at least


#159

Bah. I was on the right lines. Knew it would be a ‘lower’ score but didn’t think it’d be sub-8. Interesting Pitchfork reckon (based on ratings anyway) that this new one’s weaker than her debut.


#160

they seem to be turning on literally everyone they were endorsing a decade ago
