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.

DELUHI - ユグドアライヴ -Yggdalive- [2009.11.04]

Impressive beginning track that shows off the more electronic side of DELUHI. However, "G.A.L.D" ends up feeling like the US's Pop Metal/Metalcore filth with the goddamn awful auto-tune vocals. "Revolver Blast" is much better and feels more like a proper Heavy/Thrash Metal song. They've jumped on the bandwagon by adding blasting sections. "Flow Snow" shows that DELUHI has been looking at Soilwork with envious eyes. Many of the verses and chorus' retain their Japanese rock identity. This album definitely has better structure, better writing, more soul, and higher energy than JAGANNATH, but it's all very clearly derivative and designed to sell.

Rating: 6.5
