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.

Agalloch - Ashes Against the Grain [2006]

Much like Agalloch's previous full-length efforts, this album is solid all the way through. Not much has changed in the style, but there is more heaviness in many of the riffs. The atmosphere is still as solid as ever. The production is solid and heavy. The songs are catchy and contemplative. Overall a very good album.

Rating: 8
