Well, he describes my favourite ever band as "pretentious" (Spacemen 3) so it's a red rag to a bull from the beginning, but it's not the greatest article I've ever read. Say what you like about them, but Yo La Tengo aren't pretentious either, and are indeed considerably less so than many other bands operating in a similar style. And the quote from the record shop he apparently went into...sounds horribly forced, as if he just wanted to crowbar the name of his favourite store into an article. 

D-. must try harder.
