Pitchfork rates Sire Years reissues everything from 9.3 to 6.3

You can read the review here. Y’all will have to tell me if they got it right or wrong. I haven’t heard this batch of reissues, so I have no idea.

Also, on an unrelated matter, you will be happy to know that Paste Magazine has finally realized that I am not Paul Westerberg.

    For once, Pitchfork gets it right. All shook down deserves the lousy rating. After listening to all the reissues, that album just feels so listless.
    I thought i would feel the same about dont tell a soul, but that just aged better for me. As Ive said though, I would kill to hear that album with the original mix.

    Wait, so…
    If you’re not Our Man, then are you just the ghost of the Man?
    Because, despite all your claiming to the difference, I’ve decided that you are Paul – ain’t nobody, including you-who-is-not, gonna get it through my dumb-nut brain different…
    So, I now know that Our Man Paul is a doting aunt and – not incidently – a rick-kass writer… I never woulda guessed it, Paul!
    You’ve tricked every one, just like I’m sure you planned it.
    It’s a cunning stunt!

    I really have grown to despise Pitchfork with their indie-than-thou pronouncements. They seem to be the cool indie kids of high school they ‘Mats never were. However, this was a pretty good review. Although, ASD is still a personal fave of mine, but hey, I had just gotten out of rehab so maybe I dug it’s tired hangover feel! 😉
