Some of you may have been wondering why I'll devote two lengthy paragraphs to Bitte Orca or Relax, while other albums only receive a few sentences.

The reason why I try to limit myself to a single paragraph is for your ease. I start with several hundred words, and try to narrow it down to paragraph because I find most album reviews far too prolix. Occasionally I will write a longer review because, to quote George Bernard Shaw, I didn't have time to write a shorter one.

But what about those really short ones? The truth is I am a busy student and can only write so many longer reviews per week. Obviously, I would rather spend this time writing about something I enjoyed. But I consume a ridiculous amount of albums, many of which I don't think are great, and I'd like to record my opinion if not my thoughts on these as well, if not only for my own reference.

Since I'm a geek, I've kept a notebook for some time now where I've jotted down a few notes and a rating for any album I felt I had listened to enough times to know how I felt about it. Between Wednesdays and Fridays, or on Wednesdays and Fridays in which I'm feeling especially lazy, I'll be gradually adding these reviews to the blog as well.
