To my readers, old and new alike:
Working on this project as I have been for almost three years, I try to be as attentive to my own writing as to what I’m writing about. In an effort not to sound repetitive, I try to adapt my writing style to the nature of the album I’m reviewing. Obviously, this works more successfully some times than others. I am curious to know your opinion about what works best for you as readers. Do you prefer the more abstract, impressionistic reviews (see, for example, my recent thoughts on Angles of Repose), the more straightforward ones, or do both work in their own way? Through the former, I try to convey the feeling of the music, because anyone can look up an album to know what it is. I’m more interested in how it is. What do you think?
