Sonic Youth: NYC Ghosts & Flowers: Pitchfork Review – of course everyone’s going to be linking to this. Pitchfork continues to turn into the NME, and this is the equivalent of that mag’s wannabe-notorious Stereolab review, even unto the crass nose-thumbings at the avant-garde.

Not that I’m disagreeing that NYC Ghosts And Flowers is a bad album – I’ve not heard it, but I didn’t much like their last five or so. But it’s pretty clear that Pitchfork’s good writerness is way overwhelming their points-to-makeness.

Anywaym the new SY album would have to be pretty fucking bad to be as bad as the new Grandaddy album.
