Prog Reviewer
3 stars "Mixolidio", ERGO SUM's second album is quite varied (acoustic guitar, saxophone, vibraphone and flute) and divided into three parts. The first contains five songs from '99: swinging, dynamic and alternating (flute, heavy guitar, 2 vibraphone-players), a quite unique sound. The second parts includes 7 live tracks from '99: the emphasis is more on the heavy guitar play. The last section features two bonus tracks from 2001 with alternating and captivating progrock, again an interesting blend of folk and rock with flute, vibraphone and electric guitar. ERGO SUM's sound is not loaded with keyboards but nonetheless they sound very progressive.

The variation of instruments ERGO SUM is using works refreshing. Especially the vibraphone and flute are blending together very well. Of course the flute reminds one of Ian Anderson from JETHRO TULL or FOCUS. If you liked JETHRO TULL or FOCUS and you can also stand the more heavy guitar parts you should definitely check out this album!

3.5 stars really!
