Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler.
Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio.
Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
Terrible - Waste of your life and time.
Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style.
Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings
is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a
qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being
technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.
Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent
broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big
financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually
adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to
keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band,
label, management, promoter, etc.
The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
I Thought There Was the Sun Awaiting My Awakening
Hard to stay focused on this ambient black metal
Digir Gidim brings some strangeness to the table with this album. The songs clock in at no less than 10 minutes plus and they have this weird, meandering structure to them. It seems like the songs start out rooted firmly in the black metal world and then just shoots off to a random, ambient landscape. The vocals are decent enough when they aren't clean or somewhat hymn-like, the latter are just really hard to listen to. But the length of the songs and the fact that there isn't any seeming structure to the tracks themselves just make this hard to get through, even on multiple listens.
