Deciding to write music reviews was the worst decision I ever made. There is nothing more torturous to me than constantly thinking “how can I put this into words” while listening to new music. I can already see what will happen if I decide to (properly) write a review of this album, so instead, I am going to talk about something that is much more important. So if you have listened to this album, (most of you should have by now) you have surely formulated your own opinions and I hereby deem them worthy. There is no reason for you to hear my opinion.

We need to wipe our minds clear of this elitist system of pseudo intellectualism. I have read a lot of reviews in my day and they are all garbage. They all say the same exact thing, which is, “I have a really good taste in music, and that is why this music is blah, blah, blah. If we were really all that smart we would know the fact that music isn’t meant to be put into words. Many critics feel they could bypass this aspect through skilled penmanship and a keen ear, but unfortunately, we were dead wrong.

Everyone hears music differently, so how can one sequence of notes be considered “better” than another. I have tried to rid my reviews of the hierarchical rating scale, but that has only slightly alleviated the problem. Who am I to tell you what music is good or bad? I don’t have your brain, so I surely wouldn’t know what makes it tick. Sure, on my short time on this earth I have listened to quite a lot of music, but lately I feel that that just makes me a pretentious snob rather than a higher authority on the topic. As a means towards putting a stop to this vile and rudimentary system of opinion-as-fact, I have decided to post a censored version of my album review which shall not influence your view on this album in any way.
