Pitchfork is arguably the premier music review website of the digital age. Music criticism is still a great way to discover artists worth listening to, and Pitchfork
is one of the web's top go to destinations for in-depth reviews. I have serious disagreements with their writers from time to time, but they've also turned me onto some absolutely stunning music. It would be impossible to create a music review site that anyone would agree with 100% of the time, so with that in mind I'd say Pitchfork is a keeper. The site scores albums on a 1 to 100 scale, and they list their top rated albums based on the scores given by their writers. This playlist includes a single track from 18 albums that Pitchfork currently has rated as the very best. Listen, and when you find something you like, check out the full album. It's a great way to make new music discoveries.
