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 - O [2002]

The appeal of a pop band like this is the cuteness of the songs. "証" starts things off trying to be all serious, but ends up being derivative and gutless. I expect the shameless copy-cat nature of the underlying music, but there still needs to be an actual reason to listen to this. Unfortunately, "さらりーまん" continues with the boring and predictable seriousness. At least "Sae Zuri" is soothing and calm. Thankfully, "GO!" gives the listener a small taste of the cuteness that we were fucking looking for all this time. "一雫" is acceptable, if nothing more. Overall, it's pretty weak and mostly what one should expect from a pop band. Not all that catchy. Boring. Derivative. Amateur. Though, it isn't flat-out bad.
