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 - Stabbing the Drama [2005]

As expected from Soilwork, the album starts on a powerful track. Second track is just as good. For the most part, the CD is full of good songs that are catchy, energetic, and heavy. The production is great. However, some of the melodic choruses feel forced, and there are times when the album starts to feel mundane since there's little-to-no style-variation between songs.

Rating: 7.5


All ratings are out of 10. Rating may not be a whole number.
