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.

Nile - Annihilation Of The Wicked [2005]

Much better production. This follows very closely on the philosophy of ITDS with a very epic album structure when listened all the way through. They play more with the atmospheric Egyptian sound in the middle of songs. There's even some more catchiness thrown in. My only complaint is that, like ITDS, this is an album that doesn't really sine on a song to song basis. Rather, you must listen to the album all the way through if you are to hear its full brilliance.

Rating: 8
