Over/Under: Broken Social Scene/Fiona Apple

This was called over/under, but now it's called "guess the pitchfork review". I still put over/under as the post name not to confuse you guys as to the game we're playing here. Not that many of you would get too thrown off considering only about three people participated last time, but that's neither here nor there. Also the people who didn't play probably are confused after reading the previous three sentences, so I just blew the whole not trying to confuse anybody thing anyway, fuck it, here's how we play. I set a number that I think the pitchfork review will be for a record that is going to come out in the near future. Originally you were supposed to guess over or under the number like in a line on a football game. I changed it to just trying to guess the correct number of the pitchfork review. If you guess it correctly, I owe you drink of your choosing (That is if you know me and are in the local ATL area, you then get the drink bought for you by me, if I don't know you and you guess it correctly I suppose I could try and mail you the drink? I don't think it would work out all to well though, so if this happens you can tell your friends that you're a psychic or something). Onto the game, two opportunities this time.

Broken Social Scene (self-titled) release date: October 4th;
The hell you say!!! A fucking 9.3!!! Well here's a link to the pitchfork review (9.2) for their last album You Forgot It In People. And boy did Pitchfork really stroke them off in this review (for good reason, the album is amazing). This won't be their backlash record either, these dudes are too talented and it's not their time to crash and burn. Pitchfork loves them, but you go ahead and make the call, it could earn you a fuzzy naval or a whiskey sour.

Fiona Apple (Extraordinary Machine) release date: October 4th;
He's going seemingly high again, you say? Let's check Fiona's stats here, a very talented and unique musical persona, who also happens to be a freaky-ass recluse of sorts. Also is was rumored that her record label shelved this release b/c it was too uncommercial. Here's the link to the pitchfork review (8.0) for her last album When the Pawn... She's too much of a talented weirdo with a large gap between outings to get a really low score. Also, does anyone thing that she looks like Angelina Jolie with a crack habit and eating disorder? Anyway, guess it correctly and maybe get yourself a frozen Strawberry Margarita with an umbrella in it.

editor's note: Anyone who guesses the correct score and orders either a fuzzy naval, whiskey sour, or frozen Strawberry Margarita will instead receive a double shot of Wild Turkey.

Broken Social Scene: 8.9. I'd give them a 9+, but they've already used the line "I swore I'd drink your piss..."

Fiona Apple: 7.3

BSS: 9.4

Even though I can't take you up on the drink, I'll let someone else pick up my winnings. :)

i believe that BSS hit pitchfork today with an 8.4. in hindsight, pitchfork never seems to rate the much-anticipated follow-up as highly as the earlier critically praised album (e.g., interpol, franz ferdinand, the strokes, and now BSS). the only exception that comes to mind...the shins (the current pop gods of the indie music scene).
