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.

Hypocrisy - Catch 22 [2002]

Starts off heavy and thrashy. Catchy and really cool distorted vox. Pretty cool second track, but it starts to move a little into nu-metal. It's still catchy, though, the lyrics seem to be really simplistic and cliché. Yeah, it's definitely moving more into nu metal. The "clean" vox are beginning to grate on my nerves. No creativity on this album at all. All the songs are exactly the same. It really feels like a typical Swedish attempt to sell out. Very very few decent songs on this one… tracks 1 and 8 are the only ones worth listening to.

Rating: 5
