According to them,
Kendrick Lamar’s Section.80 = Tyler, the Creator’s Goblin (8.0/10)
The Weeknd’s Echoes of Silence > The Weeknd’s House of Balloons
Childish Gambino’s Camp got a 1.6 out of 10 (mind you, he had a line in the album that went, “Pitchfork only like rappers that are crazy or hood man”)
Frank Ocean’s Nostalgia.Ultra got a 7.8/10
Danny Brown is the best rapper out right now (because you talk about drugs for half of your album then have one song where you say its genetic doesn’t make it worthwhile, doesn’t redeem you, and doesn’t make you a genius. He okay though just not that good).
I feel like they’re abusing their power. A lot of people depend on reviews to help them pick new music to listen to so that they don’t waste their time. I’m just glad Illmatic came out before these guys were around.
