Heavy and melodic, jarring and soothing, blisteringly complex and simple: this album is a mass of contradictions to the ear, and the tensions give it a hugely entertaining character.

The first thing you hear and the first thing you will notice is the guitarist. His incredible skill radiates from each track from shred scalar runs to modal jazz licks. He sounds like Allan Holdsworth and Misha Mansoor wrapped up into a single guitarist. By far his contributions add the most to the album and give it life. The guitar playing is at the center of the compositions and is the best thing to follow when you're going through the album.

The vocals are quite decent and blend well. Tasteful use of modern effects like auto-tuning features at points. The singer doesn't have a definitive style or display extreme aptitude, but this is fine as it compliments the guitar lines in the overall compositions without being overbearing. The bass offers a nice texture to the songs and even leads with some jarring fills like in the bridge to the solo in Enigma of the Abode. The drums are impeccable. They compliment and underscore the often-syncopated groove feeling without drowning out any of the other sounds.

The album ends up sounding like a les-produced version of Periphery and a less synth-rich version of The Contortionist for those familiar with the Djent genre. Listeners will also note a similarity to Tesseract in the more funk-infused moments on the album. The only real fault is that the album reached rather wide and sometimes lacks cohesion from the standpoint of ideas. I'm not one to mind that, however, and consider the entire album quite enjoyable.

I rarely write reviews for anything, but for the life of me I CAN NOT stop listening to this album! Without going into too much detail, I haven't been this excited about an album release since the first Animals As Leaders album came out. Now, that's either because I've not been listening to enough music (which I really doubt is the case), or because this album is just really insanely good. I'd like to think it's the latter.

With the whole not-so-newfangled-anymore djent metality that has taken over a sizable corner of the music market, it's gonna be really easy for many to clump this album into that category. But for the most part (with a few exceptions here and there), many of them are so focused on being heavy that it just fails to even be enjoyable to listen to. This album is different. It's actually, dare I say....pleasant! I can even listen to it on repeat and not feel completely depressed by the end of the day. More rather, it makes me feel happy. Nothing wrong there.

Also, there's a lot of bands that try to do it all in the same song, you know, go from death metal to jazz to phat groovalicious djentstep to beebop to you name it...it's like they're trying to be progressive and fuse it all together, but it comes off more as indecisive to my ears. It's like they're good at playing all the individual styles, but by golly they just don't know where they be going with it! Now, I'd be lying if I said there wasn't a mix of styles here, but it's a cohesive mix, enough to where it has a stable & consistent sound throughout the whole of it, as if it's all supposed to be there. Not to mention, that "sound" this album achieves is nothing short of bliss.

After hearing The Journey Through Hidden Gardens, I was stoked waiting for this album but I'm a little disappointed. Sure, the playing is incredible and 2-3 of the songs are pretty good, but other that that this album fails to deliver. The melodies and the singers attempt to sing them are at times out of sync with music. Some of these songs are very instrumental oriented in nature and I thought the melodies written for them were almost an afterthought, not to mention most of the vocal melodies were basically the same from song to song. The Journey Through Hidden Gardens has a much better song writing structure with many memorable tunes with almost every song different from the other. On Living Mirrors, most of these songs sound pretty much the same with the dJent style overpowering most of them. But I like it all in all, I just had higher expectations. If you're familiar with Jakubs solo stuff, he's capable of so much more. I look forward to the next CD. I just hope we don't have to wait another four years!!

Other than Dancing with endless love, Enigma of abode, and unbroken shiver this album is just mediocre at best. Enigma of abode is one of the best prog songs ever IMO and if the rest of the album would have sounded anything as good as that song it would have possibly been the best prog album ever. Unfortunately for me that isn't the case. Others may love this album and every song on it, I just don't. I still like the album overall, I just don't love it.

This band is amazing. Excellent technical skills by all players--especially Jakub Zyteky who's made a name for himself in the prog/metal guitar world as an incredible player. But what makes these guys stand out is that the music is really interesting; melodic with great grooves and phrasing. Like with much progressive music there are elements of ambient, jazz, and metal. Singing is thankfully all clean. Jakub's guitar is such a standout--unusually restrained in many places but always super tight playing and when he turns it on, pay attention--the riffs and solos are incredible in their innovative phrasing, melody and shred-iness. His playing reminds me of a mix of Petrucci, Mark Holcomb, Holdsworth and Vai. He's so technically good that you have to remember not to get distracted by the shred from the fact that the music is obviously carefully written and intricate. I hope this band gets the attention it deserves.
