4 stars My favorite of the three THEOCRACY albums, "Mirror Of Souls" contains some high quality progressive metal music. The title track and epic, "Mirror of Souls", is the highlight of the album.

Clocking in at 22:26, this song is very long and it is seldom boring. I'm finding that the common theme of epics is that if they start with a good acoustic intro, then the epic itself will most likely be pretty good. The intense riffing and drumming in the beginning proved that this was going to be an impressive and ambitious effort by THEOCRACY. From catchy and melodic riffs, anthem choruses, soft acoustic passages, and soulful guitar solos, this song is packed with impressive musicianship. The progression in the song is profound; moods and passages change quickly and effortlessly from calm to agitated to bombastic. Very nice piano passage at the end to close the song and the album.

Overall the songs contain a lot of energy, which is something you'd expect from a progressive power metal album. I definitely recommend this album to fans of progressive metal.
