Short reviews

Around 2019, I started writing end-of-month recaps full of excellent posts from around the WordPress community of anime, manga, and video game reviewers/analysts/etc. we have. And since I wanted to write more about music but didn’t have anywhere else to put it, I decided to include short album reviews as an unrelated feature. These are only a paragraph or two typically, but I try to at least express why I like these albums and why you should try them out. (Can you tell I like prog?)
