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.

Sigh - Ghastly Funeral Theatre [1997]

Cool intro track. I like the clapping in "Shingontachikawa", even if it's a bit comical. I also like the addition of solo jazz-style Alto Sax. This album has much more catchiness to it. There's a lot more punk influence. There's also more experimentation. The production quality has increased again, too. Sure, it still doesn't feel as refined as the later material, and the overall song writing isn't stellar. But the shorter length of the album feels perfect and the experimentation feels fresh.

Rating: 7.5
