Oh.. and I know this review thingy has gotten a bit out of hand lately. But I suppose it’s funny that at least for once the problem is that I write too much stuff and not the fact that I don’t write anything at all for months. I just had this ludicrous idea to review everything I’ve bought during the year and there’s a lot of that stuff. Am I even halfway through yet. I hope I am. I’m also well aware that I haven’t reviewed many finnish albums. I care too much about them, so it’s much more stressful and time consuming to review them. But I will do them eventually. I can fully recommend reviewing for everyone though. My extremely poor reviews aren’t very detailed and have an information value of zero, but writing them still meant that I actually had to listen to the records and pay attention. Yeah, the fact I haven’t even listened to all of them that well beforehand sounds stupid, because I do buy 97% of the music I review and don’t get piles of heavy or rap promos that I’m not that interested about. I know that actually listening to records and not just collecting them is a sick idea, but sometimes it’s worthwhile and reviewing is a good way to force oneself to actually listen to the albums he/she buys..
