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.

Soilwork - Natural Born Chaos [2000]

The start of the album is fucking strong, just like a lot of their albums. Really good and heavy production with cool techno and keyboard usage. First track is great, but frustrating because of the pause in between a few sections that feels completely unnecessary and really breaks the flow. "As We Speak" changes the tone quite a bit to a nicer feel. Slows it down a smidge, too. "The Flameout" has a pretty neat solo section, but the rest of the song feels repetitive and drawn out. There we go, "Natural Born Chaos" is a much better-crafted song. Overall, the album has quite a few songs that feel like filler.

Rating: 6
