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 - Strictly Diesel [1998]

First track is a bit flat compared to what I'm used to on the other albums. There's much more emphasis on Techno effects and atmosphere. Every once-in-a-while they get kind of creative with Indian influence. The tempo is more inline with Gothic Metal than Industrial Metal. Overall, it's a very mediocre album… not horrible for their first effort, but it definitely leaves a lot to be desired when compared to the later albums.

Rating: 5.5
