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.

Je*Reviens - 朝もやの中で… [2000]

I can hear that they haven't gotten any creative impulses on this album. More stock J-Rock. I still REALLY don't like the singing style... it's not smooth at all; even the vibrato is jarring. The Kermit-the-frog thing he was doing with his vocals is back, but not as frequently. Regardless... this is copy-paste shit, and it's not really moving me in any way. Track 3 is an adorable and pussy attempt at infusing the excitement of High-Energy rock... unfortunately, it falls right on its face because of the extremely deadened production quality and the lack of understanding how to achieve high energy in a song.
