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.

Je*Reviens - Ne'phesh [1998]

Starts off very impressive. Cool key riffs, good guitar riffs, nice and heavy. First song is very well-written. Some of the vox in the chorus are off-tone, but it's not too distracting. It's definitely more metal than I thought it'd be. It's a damn good effort for a first album. The production is pretty good and clear, the songs are quite well-written, heavy, and keys are used very well. The only major downside is that the vocals go out of tune every once in a while. This album isn't pushing any envelopes, but then, not every band can revolutionize the genre. Regardless, this is a very enjoyable album.

Rating: 6.5
