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 - 「現」と「真」の実 [2008]

"バースデイ" is a bit too poppy for a kickoff, but it's quite catchy once it gets going. "東京" has a somewhat fun bluesy feel, but it's not all that inspired until the solo. Damn, the rest of the album is pretty much throwaway stuff. Unfortunately, it's very clear that there's no real progression to their albums. They all are very much in the same style and every once-in-a-while they hit gold with a really good song.
