Reviews

BOOK OF REFLECTIONS - same - LION
It is not clear whether Book Of Reflections is a permanent project. What is known is that the baby of guitarist Lars Eric Matteson is a collection of pompous and progressive songs with equal allowances for the guitar and keyboards. The many guest musicians are all competent and have been handpicked for that very reason. The songs have a tendency to grow on the listener and, even if a couple seem less than original, the album as a whole is a good addition to the collection of the genre's fans. Some oddities that need to be noted are the ultra-Satanic intro to Slippin' Away a song which incidentally ends abruptly, the closeness of You're Not Alone to a certain pop/rock song from the '80s and the general variety of the vocalists. Fans of Stratovarius, Yngwie and Rainbow will find something on this album that they will like. - Ali "The Metallian"
