I've been jumping between Mirrors and James Blake's Retrograde all day. I think this might be one of my favorite tracks by JT.

this is what i've been doing.

If Suit and Tie got BNT, this is getting BNM no problem.

if they had given a review of "mirrors" we'd have a better idea but it really doesn't matter. pitchfork reviews are important for independent/smaller artists cause it can make a career. i think we all agree justin doesn't need their boost.

Didn't P4k just give that Iceage album an > 8 score? The one that hasn't even sold 4 thousand copies?

Meh. They're not as important as they want you to believe.
There are a few tales of albums and bands either doing considerably well after a BNM or significantly worse after getting panned. It's on their wiki page somewhere.

It's hard to deny their audience size and the effect that a BNM designation has on a record that's accessible to a degree for the casual member of their audience. Pop records like that Autre Ne Veut record definitely get a much bigger boost than an album like Iceage.

I'd argue correlation does not equal causation. Their audience size isn't that much bigger than ours ... I don't believe one entity is all that powerful.
I know they're absurdly imprecise but everything available tells me Pitchfork dwarfs AP. Facebook fans, twitter followers, frequency of citations in review aggregates...Pitchfork is a massive publication. Most recent info I can find (from 2010) says they average 30 million hits a month/250k + per day. If AP is that big then it's much larger than I ever thought.
