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.

Nightwish - Oceanborn [1998]

As is typical with most Nightwish albums, this one starts off epic and very energetic. Good and catchy first song. Let's see if they can hold it all the way through the album for once… Definitely still have me at track 3. This is probably their best album overall. At most, one song may be filler, but the rest of the writing is very even in its quality. The production isn't as crystal clear as their later albums, but it's hardly anything to scoff at. However, despite the fact that the overall writing on this album is great, it definitely lacks the high-points of some of their later albums.

Rating: 8
