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.

Slipknot - All Hope is Gone [2008]

Well, the main problem I have with this album is that it seems like most of the hatred is gone from the vocals and even the lyrics, which is a fucking crime because this is Slipknot's best-produced album. Corey hardly screams anymore, and almost every single song has one of those nice melodic choruses. This would've been a decent album for Stone Sour, but, as it is, it's a really fucking weak and hate-less one for Slipknot. However, the thing that irks me the most is that the lyrics are political now…. bleh. All hope really is gone for this one.
