Can't listen to my one on Bandcamp any more. It's insisting I purchase the album. Fuck 'em. I know it's on YouTube.

OK, this was one helluva hard review for me. My opinion kept changing. I was going to rate it 2.5 initially, but this bastard is a 5 all day long! Just fucking, wow!

Trying to finish mine. It's a decent release (for a style that doesn't usually interest me too much), but there isn't really a lot I can write about it that probably isn't said in every generic brutal death metal review.

Don't worry about it. Generic brutal death metal reviews are often very close to generic grindcore reviews too.Wink Fans of those genres understand. Quite often they are just happy anyone took any notice at all.

Just waiting on Khaliq's review now. 

I'd like to propose a second round of this before the year is out, but this time with random pairs again and everyone has to select an album from this year that they enjoy but hasn't been getting much attention from anyone else. Might be a good one for just before we do the annual best of year vote (which I'm thinking of opening to everyone this year, not just collabs).

Sounds like a plan, Stan.

Yeah, I think doing that in either late November or early December would be a good idea.

Sounds like a good plan. Can't believe it's only a few months until the end of the year vote again!

Is it too late to ask for a different album? I really can't stand the album I got, I can barely even finish listening to it. If not, be prepared for an extremely negative review.

I'd rather switch back to choosing from any albums from any year, I enjoy discovering older albums more than I do new releases. Most of the new albums I listen to are from older bands.

That's why it's a challenge. There's nothing wrong with a negative review whatsoever. It is supposed to be your opinion after all. The challenge is to get creative with it. It is also legitimate to say that something is so awful you can't get to the end of it if you really hate it. A review is just supposed to be your thoughts, whatever you think of something

If you really want to change album Khaliq the randomiser has picked:

The Flight of Sleipnir - Skadi.

Though to confirm it is ok if you need to post a negative review for your original selection. Since you got drawn a very popular album I'd actually be interested in reading what your alternate point of view is.

I think I'll stick with the album I got, I managed to write a review. I'll tidy it up a bit, and then post it. Hopefully I don't piss anyone off, and if I do, oh well. LOL

I am currently updating the list of unreviewed albums, in case anyone else wants to join in on this challenge or even fancies giving a second one a go. We need all the 2017 reviews we can get, whether they be positive or negative write-ups.

I'm in the middle of reviewing the new Porky Vagina album. I don't think I need to worry about anyone else beating me to it.Wink

These aren't related to the challenge, but I am going to be writing reviews of those new Jesters of Destiny (their first in 31 years!) and Eloy albums.
