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.

Darkane - Rusted Angel [1999]

As is typical with these guys, the first track is a beguilingly epic start. "Convicted" wastes no time and takes no fucking prisoners. Not a fan of the vocals. They're a bit weak and it feels like he's constantly at his limit, but not in a good and ballsy way. I really get tired of the mono-tone singing by the end of the second track. I wish he'd either use a different note or fucking stop singing entirely. What a useless fucking vocalist... this band would be much better off without him. It's an energetic album, but it's waaay too long and has little to no variation. So, I got bored really fucking easily.
