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.

The Doors - The Doors [1967]

There are quite a lot of the classics that everyone knows on this album. It's quite ethereal and the music skips through varying degrees of madness, excitement, and calmness. It has that charming '60s recording feel to it, complete with the drums in the left speaker only. Nicely varied, but somehow all cut from the same cloth. There's a good amount of consistency in the songwriting. So none of the songs feel particularly weak or rushed.

Rating: 7
