Record-Review Clearinghouse Provides Hours Of Clicking For Music Nerds

In so many words, Parsefork is a low-level aggregator for music review websites. We’ve started with over 9400 reviews from Pitchfork, over 4500 reviews from Stylus Magazine, and about 2000 reviews from Tiny Mix Tapes that are sortable and filterable any number of ways and we’re working our hardest to bring you up-to-date information from even more sources in the near future.

Parsefork has sucked in tons of data, and the amount of information that results–reviews can be sorted by score, critic, label, and word count–is sure to inspire tens of bar fights at rock-writer watering holes. Honestly, we’d make a joke, but we’re too busy trying to figure out how much the 0.8 review of The Boy With The Arab Strap dragged down Matador’s average rating.
