[Jandek] Pitchfork - what's the deal?

They're not terrible; I'll admit that they've turned me onto to about 3/4 of the bands I like. However, they're just so obnoxious and more than a bit lacking in journalistic integrity. Often, their criticism of an artist conerns what they think the music should sound like instead of what it actually sounds like. That's mostly my beef with them.

music sites that actually deserve people's readership?"

What's the big beef so many have with Pitchfork, anyway? I'm one of those
nerds who checks PF every morning after going through the e-mail, and still
find decent reviews that prompt me to lay down some $ from time to
time...sure they grate sometimes and try to be a bit too hip/amusing, but
every music review site I've ever seen falls foul of these traps sometimes.
