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.

Absu - The Sun of Tiphareth [1995]

Definitely not what I was expecting for the beginning. The more creative drumming is back. Songwriting is a bit more experimental than before. However, the production has suffered even more with the guitars being way low in the mix. So, it's lost some heaviness. Also, the songwriting isn't as schizo as before... I can't tell if that's a good thing or not. I kind of liked their more abrupt song structures from the first album. Even so, this is certainly more refined songwriting.

Rating: 7
