eliot meets west

TS Eliot's Tradition and the Individual Talent


Kanye West's new album, which Pitchfork gave a 10.0, the first for a new album in eight years


Buzzfeed's compilation of every album that's ever received a 10.0 from Pitchfork


Pretty interesting conversation on the canon, and the role experts play in its development, and other such things.

I didn't realize their listed 10.0's were so ... safe. Only a handful of those albums aren't reissues of classics.

I know some albums originally received lower scores, and were later revised up (; and I could swear I've seen some 10.0 reviews that I came back to later and they were lower.
