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.

Testament - Practice What You Preach [1989]

"Perilous Nation", while catchy and heavy, is quite predictable. There are a few songs that feel a bit tired and repetitive. However, overall it's a pretty catchy and heavy album with a lot of good riffs and energy. The production is a bit odd; heavy and powerful during palm muting, but feeling like it was played through a single-speaker practice amp the rest of the time.

Rating: 7.5
