Boy, Pitchfork sure does like that Kanye West, huh? As everyone with eyeballs has heard…10.0, “OMG,” “WTF,” etc. Ryan Dombal’s review of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy marks the first Pitchfork-granted 10.0 since 2002 (then with Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot) and only the 12th non-reissue to receive a perfect score in the history of the ‘Fork, causing Twitter to implode, critics to go loopy, and Best Coast to boldly state the obvious within hours of the review going live. It’s basically this, but real life. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite tweets among the first wave of reactions, just ’cause it’s fun to see how riled up everyone is getting over a record review. In that sense, we all win.
Absolutely loving the reaction from people who are mad about Kanye’s universal great, nearly perfect reviews. It has really made my day.
The indy rock geeks crying on twitter about Pitchfork’s 10/10 were the best though.
I guess it wouldn’t be Kanye if someone wasn’t getting their panties up in a bunch.
Congrats to Kanye, it seems that being the most hated has only pushed him to create another classic.
“Kanye’s universal great, nearly perfect reviews.” or “…being the most hated.”
