3 stars Well, I recently found this album in a cassette format and it's still in an excellent condition so that I can enjoy the music. This album is basically a mixed of genres as I can see there is huge difference n style from one track to another. For an extreme comparison just take the opening track "Pick Up The Pieces" where I believe some of you were aware that this one was popularized by a funky band called Average White Band. Yes, of course the music is funky or disco style. While if you compare with album title track :Mindmirror" where it is the style of progressive music that comprises multi segments / movements. This epic serves like Focus music where it has combination of guitar-led segments as well as organ. I consider this track is a good one as it moves in varied style throughout the 17 minute track duration.

Overall, it's a good progressive music collection that fits those who eant to complete their Ekseption collection. Keep on proggin' ...!
