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.

Slayer - Show No Mercy [1983]

Damn, it's been at least a decade since I regularly listened to this disk... time to see if it still holds up to how I used to perceive it. Some songs are very pure and others are more watered down. However, all of the songs are good. The production is... to be expected from this period and considering that it's their first release, it's not bad. There's definitely a sense of evil that comes cropping up every once-in-a-while, but since this is their first album it's not the focus. In fact, this album doesn't have much of a focus especially when referring to the guitar riffs.

Rating: 6
