Their multiple reviews of Fevers And Mirrors by Bright Eyes amuse me greatly.

2000 review
2012 review

I genuinely believe all P4k writers hate music. It's probably part of the criteria for job applications.
lol.

I read P4k on a daily basis. I just feel they don't value music. They seem to view things based on how 'current' they are, they don't rate emotion in lyrics or the sort of things that make people fall in love with an album. I like music from many genres, they gave a favorable review to Grizzly Bear's Shields, one of my favourite albums of the year, they just seem very detached. However, if you enjoy their style of writing, awesome!
they directly address the emotional context of that grizzly bear album in that review.....

Don't do that. Just don't address most of these guys about serious discussions or issues you have (and I disagree with you here, but still). While every now and then they'll respond sincerely (as Wake Up and SophGod did this time), most of the time you'll just get snide and sarcastic remarks back. It's funny now and then, but its mostly tiresome.

I almost always respond sincerely to legitimate discussion. But alright I guess this was just a super rare occurrence

people are so quick to throw pitchfork under the bus when a plethora of music websites (including this one) are guilty of the things that people claim to make them so awful

Definitely.
