    Mc has to count other 3 above 90 reviews. 90 will be her lowest score. If anything Pitchfork will even the NYT review. A good bunch of critics gave her 80. Only would drop to 88 or so if pitchfork had gave her a 7.

    Not every review counts towards MC.

    The ones mentioned do but they weigh reviewers differently so an 8 from pitchfork would affect the score more than an 8 from, say, sputnik music or something.

    Pitchfork’s writers prove once again they are the most reliable critics on music.

    Pitchfork is my favorite when it comes to musical criticism.

    folklore will end up with high 80s or low 90s Metascore when all is said and done, very impressive for a mainstream artist tho. Now, we are looking for its commercial success, if it serves longevity then, all boxes are checked for AOTY contender. Main problem here is blue-ribbon committees

    Currently digging :

    * Joji - Nectar
    * Sufjan Steven - The Ascension
    * Marsicans - Ursa Major
    * Holly Humberstone - Falling Asleep At The Wheel
    * Rich Brian - 1999

    Now, we are waiting for reviews from Anthony Fantano, Spin, and the rest of the music critic reviews.

    I don’t think they’re going to “block” her after doing the same for Lover. She’s in like Inez.

    why because they didn’t give it a better score lol? Their main nit pick was if wasn’t innovative in the genre of indie pop or singer-songwriter, but it has good songwriting. That what’s the issue about this record. I’m glad you understood lol

    If you are in the US, vote! It’s important if live in the following swing states: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Ohio, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.

    Lmao at the music critic algebra being tossed around. Y’all are doing the damn most, as always! The album is universally acclaimed and it has gotten her the best reviews of her career. She has done what she has needed to do as far as acclaim. Commercial success is a done deal, like any Taylor album. Tay is a shoe in for AOTY. Whether Swift wins is a different discussion. It’s time to stop discrediting her, folklore is fantastic and it won’t be blocked. The BRP lives for this type of record.

    No, because they gave the right score, an amazing critique (as usual), and were unbiased and reliable with their interpretations (as they always are). An 8 is really really good and it is a great record. Anything 7+ on Pitchfork is great. I loved how they thoroughly analyzed its Americana roots / auto-fiction tales and how folklore has multiple meanings, whether it’s the “gossip of town” or the concrete details and imagery Taylor uses in her songwriting. But also the “criticism” that it is a mainstream attempt at indie pop rather than a more investigative or inquisitive work is fair, and especially that she borrows musically on the people she worked with on the project. This was an album that reminded me of Melodrama and Vanessa Calrton’s works. It truly is great, and I do believe it will be a nominee in AOTY as well as Pop or Americana Album, depending on where it goes.

    No because they gave the right score, and were on point with their interpretations. An 8 is really really good and it is a great record regardless. Anything 7+ on Pitchfork is great.

    i agree with the assessment. its great for a Taylor indie record, it’s not genre pushing as Norman Fucking Rockwell or Titanic Rising in the indie pop sphere, it’s still a great record

    Exactly, it is a strong conceptually driven album, and Taylor went more subliminal, abstract and poetic than she has before, along with enhancing her detailed songwriting and imagery. I can’t imagine the music being different than she presented it, but one of the few criticisms would be that she did not progress indie music or a “sound”, she kind of only samples its quintessential form. Another criticism is that it can dull out and some think it is a tad bit boring/long.

    Still, this is by far her best work, and I hope she maintains this level of artistic integrity moving forward. I see her getting into AOTY easily.

    imagine if she does this amount of songwriting on pop songs… with Jack Antonoff and a executively produced by a famous artist like Finneas, that would be everything

    I hope she can reinvent her pop sound
