So I guess it's safe to say that Pitchfork have just given up on TMV...


I wish they would've reviewed it. I doubt it 'cause we're already about a month after the fact.. But I feel like if they're to like any TMV release it would be this one, since Noctourniquet lacks the majority of what Pitchfork hates on them for.

Just sent a kind email to Pitchfork asking if they plan to review it. Let's see what they say.

this one's hard, but at least he justifies what he says in a decent way. i actually think it is a good review, although of course i disagree completely with him.

Two things are immediately apparent: the band still thinks it’s super clever to combine words (the chorus of “Dyslexicon” is groan-inducing) and, for the most part, are still trying to either over-confuse the listener or impress themselves with pyrrhic experiments as they’ve been doing for several albums now.


I find this salad both shallow and pedantic.

What in the actual fuck?

with the type of post punk choruses that you would expect from Rodriguez and Baxalars previous project At The Drive In.

The general consensus seems to be pretty positive, except for a few reviewers who seemed to have decided they didnt like the album or Mars Volta before they wrote the review.

Most scored/rated it higher than I would have though too!

Hah I love "Baxalar's". He probably couldn't remember, wrote that, and was like "fuck it, good enough."
