Broken Social Scene, 8.4, Fionna Apple ?

Pitchfork gave Broken Social Scene by Broken Social Scene a rating of 8.4. The over/under was set at 9.3, everyone who participated guessed high, so no free drinks. The Fionna Apple review is still not up but I'll keep you guys posted if anyone guesses correctly (for those clueless to what I speak of, this post is a follow-up to an over/under game I like to play involving pitchforkmedia record reviews). I bought BSS yesterday and so far, in my estimation, I feel the pitchforkmedia review was fair and pretty accurate. They really cranked up the amps to 11 on this release and the song structures are somewhat lacking. A much noisier and less structured affair than You Forgot It In People, still a solid effort in my estimation. Song #9 "Hotel" is in the running for my favorite song of the year.

mizz apple got a 7.8 (and a 6.2). the first review based on the early leaks of the album and the second score is for the album that was just released yesterday. once again, i think everyone guessed too high.

Wow, I'll have to recheck but I don't think anyone gets a free drink, all guessed too high. I set an 8.7 for FA, way off, the house gets killed and Vegas runs wild.

I can sympathize there, I still spend money on CD's everytime I step foot in Media Play or Best Buy. I'm happy I don't live near the Buckhead Tower Records or Criminal Records because It'd be even worse.

Damn, I guessed 7.3 for Fiona Apple. Didn't win, but that's kinda close, right? Maybe I can have a sip of your drink or something?

Bones, the name of the game isn't, "if you get kind of close you can have a sip of my drink". Sorry but I just can't go changing the rules in mid-stream, and if I changed the rules for you, I'd have to change them for everyone. Don't fear though, there will be more opportunities to win a free drink in the near, to sort of near future.

Can I at least have an ice cube from an empty glass? How bout a cigarette butt from the ashtray?

Ah, either way I look forward to more of these games in the future...
