I don't ever read Pitchfork but a friend just sent me their Aeroplane post. Maybe it has good parts after the intro, but here's where I stopped reading and will never return:
"I love it to death, myself-- cried when I first listened to the promo cassette and everything."
Just so everyone knows: whoever that guy is did not buy Aeroplane in a store after hearing about it from friends or reading about it like the rest of us. He had the promo cassette, and it's very important that we all know that in the context of a sentence that is ostensibly humble/self deprecating. Barf.
