Pitchfork is an American online magazine launched in 1995 by Ryan Schreiber, based in Chicago, Illinois and owned by Condé Nast. Being developed during Schreiber’s tenure in a record store at the time, the magazine developed a reputation for its extensive focus on independent music, but has since expanded to a variety of coverage on both indie and popular music.[2]

The site generally concentrates on new music, but Pitchfork journalists have also reviewed reissues and box sets. The site has also published “best-of” lists – such as the best albums of the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, and the best songs of the 1960s – as well as annual features detailing the best albums and tracks of each year since 1999.

It’s Forking Nastey.

    Seems as fair as their review of Black Kids S/T album

      That Black Kids S/T was garbage though. That EP was such a tease.

      • Blochead4real

        It wasn’t out and out trash. I agree the EP was absolutely a tease. But the Pitchfork review of the album basically killed that band. I hope the staff here at blocland is never so callous and cruel

        • AJ Howard

          Point, although I’d be okay with killing some bands. (And that Black Kids LP was a Top 5 record in the UK, so I’m not if the Pitchfork review really killed them.)
          However, Pitchfork’s review of the second Jet album will never stop being hilarious.
