Why would I do that? 45 isn't him singing about writing the album.
I just don't really understand what you're mad about lol.

That was a weird review. It wasn't as nasty as I was expecting. The guy misquoted lyrics though was always annoys me. If you're going to trash something at least get it right.

nah, if you check Wikipedia the review aggregate they have shows a generally positive critical reception, not '59 sound level, but not negative. I'm not surprised at all with that pitchfork review though.

I can't believe someone is complaining about the lyrics on Handwritten.

Stop being so overly critical and go fuck yourself.

Yeah but it's about listening to a 45. That's gotta get pretty annoying. We get it, he turns the record over, he doesn't need to write about it... right? Why write a whole song about a song?

I smell a troll...?

No, I'm pointing out the silliness of what he was arguing.

But he is not singing about his band or writing songs... like I've said several times now, that is the annoying part.

On a more positve note, their cover of "Changing of the Guards" fucking rules.

Bleh, over that one.

Agreed. "Gods Gonna Cut You Down" is pretty awesome too.

I've always felt the same way about Pitchfork - their reviewers are some really talented writers, but they don't listen to music to enjoy it. They listen to everything looking to pick it apart. Not the way I listen to music, or watch television shows or movies or anything else for that matter. Unimpressed with that review.

So.... went to the show last night. I've seen them five times before but this was without a doubt the best one.. played 8 of the songs off of the new record, Songs For Teenagers, Dave Hause came out for American Slang, they even threw in some Dave Matthews haha...

Do you have the videos that those are supposed to link to by chance? Or do those links just not work for me?

I finally got my vinyl today. I like that they put a picture of Ian Perkins on the inside of the jacket where the record goes

It's hidden behind a black CD tray on the CD version.
