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.

Spineshank - Self-Destructive Pattern [2003]

The logical successor to The Height of Callousness. More of the same, but with more refined song structures and writing. Also, the catchiness is ramped up a bit with almost all of the songs having some kind of clean-vocal section. However, it never distracts from the songs, nor does it feel like it was thrown in just to grab fans. The lyrics are great and definitely serve the music.

Rating: 8
