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 - S.C.I.E.N.C.E [1997]

The songwriting has taken a more energetic turn. There's a bit more finesse as well. However, there's still way too many fillers on the album and the few real standouts can't cover for the lacking writing of the rest of the album. There is still plenty of the Funk influence carried over from FA. It's odd, because this album is both quite creative but also by the numbers. The creativity is found in the non-heavy sections of songs. Once they get to the Heavy ideas, it's as if they don't know what to do with the Heaviness, so it comes out weak and generic.
