I have accumulated many personal reviews while listening to albums. My reviewing style is non-conventional and was only intended for myself. Sometimes I will only use one sentence to describe an album if I feel that is all that's required. Other times I will review an album while I'm still listening to it, leading to a song-by-song review of the album (bringing the size of the review to nearly dissertation-level). There are times when I will even come back to a review to add information that I didn't know when originally writing the review. The point is that I won't edit my reviews to make them more readable or conventional. My reviews are always a direct result of what I was feeling when I wrote them and I want to let that feeling come through.

Dimmu Borgir - Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia [2001]

I remember… when I first got this CD, I wasn't fucking ready for the onslaught of hell contained within. Perfect production quality (and sadly, the only one of it's kind for Dimmu), awesome song writing, brutal, epic, symphonic, and the height of modern Black Metal. This album can almost do no wrong. Nit-picking, I'd say that there are a couple fillers on the album towards the end. Also, it's not the most creative album in the world, but the good far outweighs the bad.

Rating: 9
