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.

Tristania - Widow's Weeds [1998]

Wow, I really wasn't in the mood for Tristania when I started listening, but the first 4 tracks have completely changed my mood. So far, this may be some of the best songwriting I've heard from them. Production isn't bad. The guitar distortion is a bit wonky. This album has much less of the epic and energetic feel of the later albums. Rather, it focuses on the more beautiful style of songwriting, and they seem to have perfected it in this album

Rating: 8
