In the great American South, whence Pitchfork Ain't Right hails, the phrase "ain't right" can carry one of two meanings:

1. Incorrect
2. Lacking in mental faculties/is touched in the head

If you know anything about anything, you must recognize that Pitchfork is sometimes both. Don't get us wrong — there's a lot to agree with over there, but we at PA'R feel that occasionally the great indie tastemakers wield their influence somewhat recklessly.

This here weblog is intended to act as a positive foil to Pitchfork's sometimes dickish dismissiveness. We'll not be tearing down anything that they've praised (the last thing the Internet needs is more negativity), but simply propping up some artists and albums we feel didn't get a fair shake, and deserve a second look.
