Mekong Delta: In a Mirror Darkly

I can absolutely see what Mekong delta are all about; their style compromises a bewildering set of generic influences such as thrash, jazz, classical references, overt prog influences alongside others, however, In a Mirror Darkly does very little for me. The main problem is Martin LeMar's voice. Let me explain further, he appears to be on a different album, to the rest of the group, whilst the rest of the band are rocking out he seems to be in his own Andrew Lloyd Webber world enunciating ever so carefully for the people at the back and for that reason, despite all the many good things about this album, I really struggle with it. Musically though it is almost faultless, full of interesting ideas and diversions which perhaps should have been worldless! "Inside the Outside of the Inside", one of three instrumentals is beyond good and worth the price of admission all by itself.

Track Listing:
01. Introduction
02. Ouverture
03. The Armageddon Machine
04. The Sliver in Gods Eye
05. Janus
06. Inside the Outside of the Inside
07. Hindsight Bias
08. Mutant Messiah
