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 - Slipknot [2000]

This was a very mediocre album at the time. I didn't like the production all that much; it lacked punch. I also really didn't like the heavy amount of rap elements in the lyrics. However, there were a lot of good songs on the album, many of which were devoid of energy but were very Gothic and atmospheric. The creativity certainly deserves praise as well.

Rating: 7
