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.

Jeniva - 泣き雪 [2005]

Not quite what I was expecting from a band that looks as Gothic as they do. Cool piano part after the beginning, though. Weird vox and definitely not the best tuning. Somewhat stock (okay, very stock) vocal styling and rhythm. Cool solo at the end of T1, definitely the only part of the song that has any talent… too bad it fucking fades out within 5 seconds. T2 is much more promising with its more moody riffs. Overall, definitely not fucking impressed. It's stock as hell. Admittedly, the second song is ok, but the vocals are intolerable… not the worst I've heard, but pretty fucking bad. The short length of the album gains it a favorable score. I can see now why this band didn't last long.
