Mirror biography
Mirror is a Dutch Symphonic progressive Rock band formed in 1972. At the time of its formation, the band was a four piece consisting of high school friends Kees Walravens on guitar, Johan Saanen on bass guitar and vocals, Paula Mennen on piano, organ, synthesizer and vocals, and Peter Fransen on drums. In 1973 the band expanded its line-up with the addition of Philip de Goey on saxophone, woodwinds, and oboe. Their sole album was recorded over six days at the Stable Studio in Arnhem, The Netherlands. The album was titled Daybreak and was released in 1976, pressed in only 500 copies. The music is mainly instrumental and is influenced by Focus, Yes, and Pink Floyd. After the release of the album Mirror toured their native Holland extensively. But internal disagreements soon led to the departure of Johan Saanen and the band finally split up in late 1976.

After the break up of Mirror, Philip de Goey, Kees Walravens and Johan Saanen formed a new progressive Rock band, Lethe in 1978.

Review by Tarcisio Moura

4 stars Sometimes you stumble upon a CD you have never heard before and discover a truly lost gem. This is the case with this obscure dutch bend from the 70īs. A friend introduced me to Mirror knowing I was a fan of Hollandīs music scene since the late 60īs and Iīm grateful he did it. Daybreak is, unfortunately, their only album and it shows great promise. The music is mostly instrumental, but there are some nice laid back vocals done by keyboardist Paula Mennen, sometimes helped by bassist Johan Saanen. The band was strongly influenced by classic bands like Camel and Focus, with some parts also reminding of Earth and Fire and even a bit of Krautrock too. Still, they were already showing a sound of their own, which made me even more sorry to know there was never a follow up. In fact, at the time, only 500 copies of the LP were pressed.

Most of the tunes are led by guitarist Kees Walravensm, but the band also had Philip De Goey on oboe, sax and flute, giving the band a quite distinctive twist. The title track starts with a powerful riff obviously taken from the classic Yes song Perpetual Change, but thatīs as far as they go copying that group. The remaining is mostly pastoral and tranquil, much on the Camelīs style, although never really as a rip off of anyone. As I mentioned before, they were not only excellent musicians, but also very good songwriters. I just loved Saanenīs bass lines and Mennenīs great use of the ARP String Ensemble. Production was not that great, but the performances were so good they overcame that issue easily. There are no weak tracks and I throughly enjoyed Daybreak.

Conclusion: If you like laid back symphonic rock in the vein of the aforementioned bands then you cantīmiss this one. Itīs really a tragedy they did not get the recognition they deserved when they released this jewel. Still, they at least produced a fine LP that still sounds as fresh and beautiful as it was in 1976. Iīm really glad I got to know them.

Rating: 4 strong stars.

Review by maryes

3 stars When I heard "Daybreak" from the Dutch band MIRROR, instantaneously, a impression comes in my mind, and is exactly the same as the Progarchives band biography: Their sound presents a clearly influence by their countrymen from FOCUS ( in large scale) , in second plane PINK FLOYD and in a very little "dose" YES. Curiously this YES little "dose" influence can be finding as soon as starts the first track "Daybreak" and only can be perceived in that track or in some isolated moments (mainly in certain bass/drums passages). Along with the Secound track "Goodbye", these 2 tracks form the better parts of the work. The other 2 tracks sounds monotonous and to "drag" . My rate is 3 stars !!!
