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.

Textures - Silhouettes [2008]

Cool and interesting album. It's fairly unique in it's song structure. Melodic vocals come in often enough to give the songs dynamics and these sections are well-done with the vocals sounding serious and non-emo. It's very energetic and has lots of groove. There's some pretty unique guitar work as well. Production is great. The album is full of talent (mostly the drumming). Unique, catchy, and well-written even amongst a genre that's known for having unique ideas.

Rating: 9
