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.

Coal Chamber - Chamber Music [1999]

A thousand times better than their self-titled debut. The song writing is wonderfully refined and the production is better, though I don't agree with the type of guitar distortion. Songs don't over-stay their welcome, catchy writing, unique style, essentially gothic, and energetic. This is one of those albums that you feel more than listen. The lyrics strike the perfect balance between being direct and being obtuse. It may not be pushing the envelope, but it's consistently great all the way through.
