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.

LuLu - 日本医療革命 [2008.08.06]

"溺愛クランケ" is an interesting song; the first half is very much punk-inspired, but the second half is a very catchy more rock-inspired section with good keys. "過触症" fuses elements of punk and quirky jazz and then ends up with a very catchy chorus again. Wow, this is really impressive for LuLu... normally it's not this catchy at all. Yet, nearly every song feels like a massive hook. It's not ground-breaking, but it's fucking LuLu, not Arcturus. There's very good energy to this album and it really covers up for the odd vox... but then, those vox are starting to become part of the experience for me. This is BY FAR their strongest material... despite the few damn re-recordings of other songs.

Rating: 7.5

All ratings are out of 10. Rating may not be a whole number.
