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.

Incubus - Make Yourself [1999]

This is a much more significant change in songwriting style. I really like the addition of the light atmospheric rock elements. It makes the songs much more listenable and deep. The songwriting quality and proficiency has definitely leapt forward. It's more catchy. There's little to no rap elements left. However, my favorite change is that some of the songs take on an appealingly dark and depressing atmosphere. The major blemish on this album is that there are plenty of fillers despite their creative contributions.
