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.

Juka - Saint Croix [2007]

Interesting. At the very beginning I was extremely cynical, but then it gets very dynamic with a whole shitload of things happening at the same time. It's actually pretty good. However, it still feels like a Moi dix Mois song at it's heart. It's almost like he just took that formula and improved upon it. I guess that's not really a bad thing... I'm sure I'll get used to it. T2 drops down into a typical piano / vox soloist feel. The production quality is definitely punchy and forwardly aggressive. Accurate vox, if a bit stock. But, I dunno, for some reason I just feel like it's missing emotion and heart. Maybe I'll warm up to it, but for now, it get's a lower mark.
