Aren't they going to be announcing their album any week now? What was the finish/announcement-gap with The Five Ghosts, does anyone know?

Pitchfork predictions were pretty spot-on, Synthetica earned Metric a 7.0. A fair rating, in my opinion. http://www.pitchfork.com/reviews/albums ... ynthetica/

Are you writing for The Lamb now, Dustin? If so I'd love to read some of your reviews.

Also re: pitchfork, what the hell is "faux-girlish" supposed to mean, in and out of that context?

I found that entire piece comparing it to Grimes to be completely unnecessary. Otherwise I suppose it's a fair review, except I feel like I just read a review for some 7.5 or 7.6 than simply a 7.0

Oh man oh man oh man, I didn't know there were horns on Speed The Collapse (Really, I still can't hear them.)

BUT I DIDN'T KNOW EVAN CRANLEY AND CHRIS SELIGMAN RECORDED THEM.

Why does the intro to Nothing But Time remind me of Kingdom Hearts so much? How odd.

The insert artwork (NOT the stupid flipped lyrics shit) makes me appreciate the album more. And the better quality, of course.

O.K. "Lost Kitten" has found its way into the favourite pile. Holy shit, what a song! I predicted 7.2 for Pitchfork, so like many of you, I was pretty close to being spot-on. I don't really know what that whole Grimes comparison was all about. I don't really listen to the lyrics in Grimes music--first of all, I can't understand all of them, and secondly, Grimes herself said in an interview that the lyrics are personal and not always meant to be clear. Otherwise, pretty typical Pitchfork. Glad it beat the Fantasies review, but I still think the record could/will score higher with different critics.
