The Onion AV Club screws up again

I like The A.V. Club, and I like The Onion, so I was kind of disappointed when in their B- review of Year Zero, the reviewer said such bizarre things as "See "The Good Soldier," a near-reprise of 1994's omnipresent MTV hit "Closer."" The first comment on that review asked, "Did you even listen to this record?"

Unfortunately, their review of Year Zero Remixed is another phone-in, if that. As a matter of fact, half of Andrew Earles' review of Year Zero Remixed is dedicated to panning the fan effort, The Limitless Potential, under the guise that it was something organized and run at nin.com.

It's sad that someone who gets paid to write has such poor reading comprehension skills.
