"I'm pretty sure that this has been mentioned to you before, but you need to learn how to use possessive. That seems to be your achilles' heel. In the summary, it's definitely band's.

And I know this might seem like nitpicking, but you're running for contributor after all, so you should put as much effort into improving as you're putting into pumping out reviews."

I second this. You're an awesome writer but there are always bizarre s's every which way.

I unno I feel this review is just comparing this to albums from 20 years ago. like " the production isn't as good, the drumming isn't as good as they were way back when" etc. I wanna know what this album is like... not everyone is familiar with suffocation. just my two cents.

Doesn't it make more sense to judge the album on its own merits (or lack of merits) instead of judging it in comparison to their previous albums?


I did both.

But, since it's a legendary band like Suffocation everybody feels inclined to be a little excessively critical over relatively mundane details.


When critiquing bands that are established such as Suffocation, how could someone not pick out the things that the band should have down pat. They've been at it for 20plus years the little kinks should be out of the system a long time ago.

Stuff I'm working on, it's actually becoming less and less.

How are the albums from 20 year ago not valid reference points?

I'm aware but providing comparisons to previous records is actually pretty informative.

In a sense, but really no.

I'm not really enjoying this that much. Like many said, it just doesn't feel like the Suffocation I'm used to.

Suffocation is largely a household name in the death metal genre
no death metal band is a household name.

good review otherwise

they are, but my point is that you spend most of the review comparing and not enough describing what the album is like. even when you tried to describe the drumming for example, all you did was say it wasn't as good as it was 20 years ago.

he was trying to communicate the value of the music, not describe the sound of the record in detail. if you want to know what it sounds like, listen to it. if you want to know how it was interpreted and understood by another person, read a review.

it doesn't even have to describe the sound in detail though. it can still be "this isn't as good as classic suffocation" while describing the sound to explain why. do the riffs lack originality? is the drumming not as varied, or too monotonous? etc etc
