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.

Amogh Symphony - The Quantum Hack Code [2010]

Mixed feelings about the introduction's use of exposition, which I strongly dislike. However, I do like the fact that they're creating a story for this album, and "Dvorzhetskii's Prophecy" certainly starts of very unlike the previous album. The production quality is a bit more clear, but the guitars still lag behind with bargain-price distortion and a fairly low mix position. I do like the more avant-garde songwriting and sections like in "Osiris 1" really bring depth to the material. Bonus points for bringing the music to a new creative level, but get rid of the exposition at the beginning of every track and beef up the guitars please.

Rating: 8.5
