No, I am not having a Barack Obama moment, nor am I feeling inspired by peace and change. Right now the issue would be the format of my writings and the fact that I am S-I-C-K A-N-D T-I-R-E-D of them. There you go. I’ve said it now. Track-by-track reviews are only fun to write when I actually feel terribly inspired, and that’s not exactly too often. It’s hard to express my feelings about entire albums in the short block I give the overall review at the end; the only advantage I could give the TBT format would be that I can hate songs that I hated when I first heard them even more because reviewing them makes me so entirely sick of them it makes me want to click on the little “x” on the side of the tab’s name and switch to Facebook or some other meaningless waste of time.
So now that I’ve ranted it about it and made myself a little bit irritable, I make the official proclamation: from now on, posts on StyleJapan will be written under the original reviewing format, as text, and I will simultaneously work on changing the format of any previous reviews. The order of switching reviews I have no idea of, and I will proceed to change reviews randomly. There will be a sidebar to notify you on any redone reviews. This is an irrevocable decision; I don’t care what you think about it.
