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.

The Elysian Fields - We… The Enlightened [1998]

Definitely true black metal. Not quite what I was expecting because I've listened to some of their other stuff before and it was a bit more unique. Nonetheless, this was pretty good and had some small amounts of creativity. I've listened to this album after a long break and I'm knocking it up a full point. There's much more creativity and similarity to 12abLAZe than I previously noticed and the songwriting definitely deserves higher marks. The production is this album's largest fault.

Rating: 7.5
