Remove all tight fitting clothing. Find a cool and comfortable place to sit down where you will not be disturbed. Relax. Try to block out all thoughts that are running through your mind. Breathe. Make yourself an entirely empty vessel, like a glass that has not been filled. Relax. Breathe. I am going to count backwards from 10 and when I reach 1 you will begin to hear my review of the new Trivium album.
I will now transmit my review directly into your mind…..

Any Trivium fan will probably have a lot of difficulty with the very first part of your instructions, Keith lol

That’s why I wrote it down. That way, they can read it four or five times if it gets difficult.

That was AMAZING! The concise yet picturesque descriptions, the wondrous contrasts of lyrics and instruments, the way you put the reader (receiver?) into the minds of the band members throughout the creative process – just phenomenal. I believe you have truly hit the top of your game with this review!
I did have one tiny problem with your preparations, though. You suggested I find a place where I’m not disturbed, but no matter where I go, people agree I am SEVERELY disturbed……

It’s a new method. I like to call it the new, new journalism. I felt like the intro was too long. That and the title will be omitted next time.

Computed, maximized, and realized.
Stored in hard drive for future enjoyment.
like Buddah at the sermon when he didn’t say a word
if you think you hear a flower, it’s a flower that you heard

That, sir, if the truth if I’ve ever heard it.
