The Mirror Reveals
This Infinite Eye
Middle Pillar Presents

The Mirror Reveals is singer Kit Messick, guitarist/songwriter James Babbo and violinist Joanna Dalin. Their darkwave sound is enchanting and unique and this album is lovely.

"Waves" is beautiful and light. Messick's sweet vocie and Dalin's violin adds layers of harmony. "Blue Fire" is a mystical track with a fascinating lyric about life's brevity. The arrangement is sophisticated and it suits Messick's singing. "Moon's on Fire " has dark-voiced guest vocalist Mark Steiner in his element on the folk-influenced song. The cover of Death in June's "Golden Wedding of sorrow" is exquisitely sad.

"Little Plaything" gives a frightening view of a traumatized childhood. This infinite eye is a great album.
