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.

ジュリィー - ストロボ [2007]

"ストロボ" is very stock and doesn't have a soul. "木漏れ陽" is much better; it has more feel to it and the buildup towards the end is quite enjoyable. For that matter, even "晩餐" is better than the opening track. This seems to be quite a trend among the Japanese bands, where they put some shitty sell-out song first to capture a large fan base and then the real songs come after it.
