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.

Sarah Marie Mullen - The Wild Woods [2006]

It's shocking how, despite being predominantly harp music, this album is in a completely different style than LF. Some more instruments have been added to the mix, like flute and guitar. It feels like LF was for more of the upper classes of society while this is geared more towards the common folk during a party. I'm not really a big fan of a fair amount of the material on this album. Maybe it's the arrangements, but it really doesn't feel all that much like period music and doesn't get me in the renaissance mood. One of the standouts is "Nonesuch".
