4 stars As the band biography here states Djam Karet is one first of the new wave of progressive music that started up in the late '80's, although the key players here - Henderson, Oken, and Osborne started playing together at least as early as 1982.

Reflections From The Firepool is their first regular album release although they did put out some stuff on cassette before this one. I guess it's no surprise that these guys put out such a strong release in that most of them had already been playing together for a few years before 1989.

There's a very heavy King Crimson influence to the music here and in their other releases. Still, their music is hardly clone material. According to the liner notes this was originally released independently and was where they "discovered our musical voice". If you love high quality instrumental prog, this is a must have for your collection.
