5 stars MINDGAMES - MMX (5/5)

While perhaps not quite as compelling as their previous work "Actors In A Play", the album maintains the signature Mindgames atmosphere with its well-crafted compositions and overall positive vibe.

What truly sets MMX apart is the band's unwaveringly positive attitude throughout each track. The musicianship is top-notch, with each piece brimming with catchy interplay and solid execution. There isn't a dull moment to be found here, every track is a winner, especially "The Pendulum".

While "MMX" may not reinvent the wheel, it doesn't need to. It's a testament to the band's consistency and craftsmanship that they can deliver such a consistently enjoyable listening experience. From start to finish, "MMX" is a testament to Mindgames' evolution as musicians and songwriters while staying true to the essence of what makes them great. Mindgames has once again delivered a valuable addition to the genre, earning an easy five-star recommendation as a neo-prog.

This release underscores Mindgames' status as a truly great band deserving of wider recognition within the prog community. While some may debate whether MMX surpasses the brilliance of Actors in a Play, there's no denying that it stands as a beautifully composed album and a strong contender for the best of 2010.
