Winners Never Quit review removed from Pitchfork?

Postby tommystinks » Thu Sep 17, 2009 5:10 pm

I tried to find it and I don't think it's there anymore. Weird.

But seriously, I hate those fuckers. That review was so ridiculous.

I'm pretty sure they deleted hundreds of old reviews a year or two ago. I doubt it was singled out or anything.

In case you are that in need of a shitty review

edit: I forgot he mentions "the good lord smiled" as standard fare but neglected to mention the next line as "and looked the other way" in order to make his point

I never read pitchfork so I don't know if this is normally the case, but that was one of the most unprofessional pieces of writing I've ever read. It was like it was written by a seventh grader. Why low personal attacks? Neckbeard? Are you serious?

4. The first words bellowed on the record are, "All the way to Grandma's house."
5. He has a neckbeard.

The fact these things bothered the reviewer has really upset me to this day.
