Fucking state of ur article p4k


#4

It’s been absolute garbage since that takeover.

Dunno what’s worse, nonsense like this or the awful tabloid TMZ-reprinting stuff about kanye still being in hospital.

horrific


#5

It had been declining for a while but since the takover it’s been absolute shit. Some reviews are still decent but everything else on the site is terrible.


#6

Trouble is it’s still the best place (along with Stereogum which has similar clickbait BS issues) for finding out about new album news, so I check it every day regardless.


#7

Agreed. Still my most visited site along with Stereogum.


#8

what would the year of disappointment be without a disappointing article to commemorate it?


#9

Recently I’ve enjoyed their daily articles about artists selling xmas sweaters


#10

http://pitchfork.com/news/70281-ghostface-killah-selling-ugly-christmas-sweaters/

etc.


#11

Look at how fucking stupid this article is. They’re only covering him because he’s a novelty act


#12

yeah that article is particularly awful. ‘not just another riff raff’ - felt genuinely bad for riff raff reading that.


#13

Holy shit this is bad :'D that first song was a Best New Track as well, apparently.

Also showing their cards with this “FIVE MUST-KNOW NEW ARTISTS FOR 2017” thing. Just going to a load of old shite they’re going to peddle all year regardless of if it’s any good like the BBC one.

Pretty sure you’ll be able to pinpoint this as the exact moment they descend into being 00s NME.


#14

What the fuck
His music is singularly unenjoyable. Like listening to tom delonge attempt to me gucci mane


#15

hey, remember such great heights! it’s back! in trap emo form!


#16

Fucks sake


#17

I didnt’t know it and I don’t find It (Trouble)! Can you give me the link? Thanks!


#18

I listened to Hellboy a couple months back. Mostly bad but not as bad as I was expecting. These are my lazy comparisons: Blink 182, Why?, Rae Sremm, Clouddead, FKi


#19

they included [overhyped return album by canonical artist] in their top 10 of the year so obviously have no concept of disappointment!


#20

Reminds me of Kitty Pryde x a bad Blink impression, though admittedly I passed judgement after one and a half tracks
