    Dull and repetitive. Most of the tracks have a few bleeps and synth washes, but that's it. Rockhard arrangements that hardly change, resulting in general feelings of boredom and staleness. Once the brothers get into a groove, they copy and paste the entire section over again for the next 5 minutes, and then add a few changes. Inane instrumentation that never goes anywhere.

  1. But even with all the billowing moods and lush female vocals, what is paramount to The Mirror Conspiracy's muse is rhythm.
  2. But while The Mirror Conspiracy is lush relaxation music, it can be too relaxed at times. Some of the tracks, such as "So Com Voce," feel bland and lack the rhythmic ideas driving standout cuts like "Lebanese Blonde" and "Le Monde."

    Unlike many of dance culture's dedicated dilettantes, theirs is a smooth and millifluous whole, underpinned by the gentle pulsing of liquid bass lines.... Delightful. [Sep 2000, p.94]
