Return to Ten Point Oh

I think I’m just allergic to critical praise.

Matt is right: I give Pitchfork too much credit. Joey is right: it’s to their credit that they’ve been bold enough to give a perfect score to an album that isn’t a reissue. Joey is also right: there is no album more appropriate to justify Pitchfork’s independent pop/rock/electronic + mainstream rap editorial agenda. Justin is right: five stars > 10.0.

All criticism withstanding, here’s a toast to the assholes: this album is 9.5 great. I get the moment.

How do you moralize about rap music without sounding white? How do you ask more of it without being an asshole too?
