Editorial Reviews

Welcome to Tucson, Arizona. The landscape is desolate and the weather is unruly. Home of Versus The Mirror. It was late 2002, bored with the band they used to be in, drummer Shane Ray and guitarist Gabe Borquez began writing music for a new project. They soon welcomed guitarist Kevin Ryan and bassist Brad Murray to complete the instruments. The only problem was that Tucson wasn't exactly a hotbed for dynamic singers. After four months of searching and struggling, the band found Davey Siebold. He was in another band at the time but was looking to put down the guitar and do something a little different. Siebold's energy and passion for music was the perfect compliment for Versus The Mirror's frantic style of melodic hardcore. Equal Vision. 2006.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing debut May 13, 2006
By Muffin
Format:Audio CD
Well i first heard of this guys when i was messing around on purevolume and their name caught my eye, after reading there music description which i beleive was "indie/hardcore/rock" i thought o balls another emo/scremo band,.. however after listening to "smoke it to the rope" and "birthed by architecture" i clearly found out i was wrong. Versus the MIrror is a great, original, heavy yet melodic post-harcore band. ANd "Home" their debut CD is now one of my favorites.Home is filled with great breakdowns,heavy and always changing guitars, amazing and catchy screaming, and even some synthesized/electronic interludes. Overall Great CD.

"Birthed by architecture" Great opener, pretty guitar parts, catchy drums, gets heavier towards the end. 5/5.

"Smoke it to the Rope" One of their heaviest songs, great breakdown towards the middle/end, one of my favorites.5/5

"Barracuda Capitol of the World" Good 2-step song, pretty and catchy guitars, great chorus.4/5

"The Great White Zombie" Definitely one of their most chilled out songs, good pretty breaks inbetween screming. 3/5

"Life as A Criminal" Another one of their heavier songs, still catchy, great drums, awesome guitars in the chorus. 5/5

"The Sound Asleep" An interlude filled with drums and bass and synthesizer/electonic noises. Good break in the CD.

"Out of Context" A fast-paced catchy song, great breakdown towards the end, another good 2-step song. 4/5

"Lets Get Alone" Very good guitars, probably some of my favorite on the Cd. Constantly changing guitars and drums. 4/5

"Boy gets what he wants" One of my favorites, great breakdown at the end, sums up the CD. 5/5

"Fear will keep them in line" Great intro, great 2-step parts and great guitars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff April 29, 2006
By Gibby
Format:Audio CD
"Home" is the first release for Versus The Mirror, and in my opinion, its great. The screaming is somewhat airy, and may be just a little bit hard to understand at first, but after a while, you get used to it. Their whole sound as a whole reminds me of As Cities Burn for some reason that i just cant pick out...it may be the sound of the screaming.

Well anyways, try out Versus The Mirror if your interested in Hardcore with a different sound.

Standout tracks in my opinion include: Life As A Criminal, Out Of Context, Boy Gets What He Wants, and (I Am) The Master Of Gravity

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this CD. June 12, 2008
By DC
Format:Audio CD
I really enjoy this cd. I can't wait to hear more from this band in the near future. They have a unique, quality, intense sound to them that sets them off from a lot of other bands out there. I highly recommend this CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Whoa?? June 20, 2006
By KZA
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan and friends of Versus the Mirror from the beginning. This album is in a way amazing and in a way not so good. I've seen VTM more times than I can count on 2 hands and loved every second of it, but when the big moment came and their cd was released I wasn't as happy with it as I thought I'd be.
The songs are all fun and energetic, but it's the sound of it all that turns me off. They used old recording equipment to record this album, which is what gives it the sound, and that to me is what destroyed it. Their cdep/ demo was brilliant and are one of my favorites of this genre, but the full length to me does not live up to it. It's just boring and didn't give me the same vibe as their demo did.
"Smoke it to the Rope" and "Boy Gets What He Wants" are the best known songs from their demo. They also are on here. I'm not going to lie, they sound awful on this one. They completely destroyed the sound, the energy, and the vibe that these songs once had.
If you've never heard of Versus the Mirror, then you'll probably love this. But to everyone else who has been there since the start, check it out before you buy it.
If you ever get the chance, I would definitely recommend getting their demo/ cdep. It will blow you away. Also, I think this album isn't that great, but their live performances are still extraordinary. Definitely go see these guys if they come through your city.
The songs on this I think truly show the VTM I know are "Out of Context" and "Barracuda Capital of the World". The rest aren't what it used to be...I give it 2.5 stars...peace.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please enter a title for your review June 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is the apex of the clueless new wave of trendy emo kids attempting screamy metal vocals who are completely lost, relying on constant diaphragm lurches to make vomit noises instead of developing a controlled sustainable throatyness. I've never heard such a consistently horrendous vocal performance before, let alone one that evidently has so much misguided passion behind it. You didn't hear anyone in metal or screamo in the 90s doing vocals like this, and I really don't think it can be argued that it's an intentional stylistic choice, it's just kids out of their depth attempting something they don't understand. How did what Finch did so commandingly on What It Is To Burn mutate into this?
