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.

Samael - Solar Soul [2007]

Samael is back with the heavy guitars. Production quality is improved a bit. The keys are a bit more forward in the mix and the guitars sit a little farther back. First track is good so far. More orchestra effects, really cool. Wow, I'm really impressed by this album. The use of keys and effects is fucking phenomenal and makes the songs way more energetic than on their previous albums.

Rating: 8
