2 stars It's sad what record company pressure can do to brilliant (and somewhat naive ) musicians, case in point. Every progger agrees that the first 3 albums were jewels. RIP for ever. Agents of Fortune was very very ordinary and totally out of past context. Spectres was pretty ordinary as well. Guess what? Mirrors is another chapter in the same book. The only track that is remotely exhilarating is the 6 and a half minute "The Vigil", which has a simply wild and memorable Buck Dharma solo , blasting into life right after the bell rings. Get the song, save it, revel in it but chuck the rest. One song does not make an album.We are not popsters (who would accept such a crime), we are proggers needing extended and epic fixes, for God's sake ! You can't really help but to wave the azure oyster goodbye, as I did when I purchased my last BOC album- Los Imaginos. Since then, I gently return to Career of Evil and Dominance & Submission on Secret Treaties to get my kicks.
