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.

ZONE - N [2004]

Typical High school Pop Rock song to introduce us to the album. At least the chorus is pretty catchy. "BeaM" is certainly the highlight of the album. I still think that they don't realize what makes their band desirable. It's not good songwriting, because it's mostly average. It isn't serious vocals or slow ballads. IT'S THE CUTENESS. So far, they are averaging about 1 cute song per album, which isn't good enough. I listen to ZONE for the cute, happy, feel-good shit. But ok, if they want me to review it like a serious album, then I will. The songwriting is average. The creativity is... well, there isn't any. It's cliché and copy-cat all the way through. There aren't any high-points to the album at all. It's not all that catchy. It's too long of an album for what they have and there's a shit-ton of repeats. Props for the one song that breaks with the normalcy of the ZONE sound, "prayer". "true blue" is ok, too.
