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.

Fellsilent - The Hidden Words [2008]

Polyrhythmic right off the bat. I'm really not a fan of the somewhat weak production. It really hurts this style of music. "Erase/Begin" is a bit catchy, though stock, with a wonderful clean vocal surprise tucked away in there. "Drowned in My Enemy" introduces the first bit of creativity with a short-lived clean section. This sounds remarkably like a Swedish album for a band that's from the UK. There are a few interesting sections throughout the album, but most of it is derivative. It is catchy in small chunks, but listening to the album all the way through makes one realize that this is a fairly two-dimensional album with little to know variation.
