No, this is not the Leon review..

While waiting for me to listen over to the whole Leon album, why not read about exactly how I review an album? Yes, I'm this bored.

So obviously, the first thing I do is put the album in my iTunes library and make a playlist for it. Then, I play the album once from start to finish, putting five stars on my favorite songs after one listen.

Then, I listen to the album again, but I don't just listen to it anymore. So I open up TextEdit and make notes about each song, what stands out, what went wrong, short first impressions of the songs. So once I've got my notes and my favorites, I write a review here! While writing, I listen to the album again, and look at my notes from time to time.

And that's how I make my reviews. Interesting? Nope, boring.
