Haha ah well, it's surely a formula we all must have long suspected by this point. Exactly why I can't read their reviews.

I'm being told that this review has always been like this and is deliberately so.

It might be just a weird idea for a review and not necessarily a mistake. Maybe.

Their review for Desaparecidos was pretty strange as well: http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/...speak-spanish/

Look at the link. Does that look like a typical review to you?

Was just looking for insight across the AP community on this one.

I'm being told that this review has always been like this and is deliberately so.
Wonder what the thought was behind it...

Very odd. Regardless, it's a very strange way to review of such a great album.

Is this the "complain about things from the early 2000s thread"?

They wrote like this for a long period of time for whatever reason. Not sure what motivated them to stop.
Nope, can't say I've read much of their reviews before 2007 or so (when I started digging into different types of music).

Just thought it was odd.

here's a more pressing discussion from the past: remember when mattjritter got mad about the usher and frank ocean threads?
