"Bloody hell... a new genre is born! Heavy Acoustic! Seriously, this is great stuff you are doing. Like the bastard love child of Matt Pike and Nick Drake (there's a thought eh?!)." - Sapient Network
"Imagine if you will, walking through a forest that’s enshrouded in dense fog. Visibility is only a few hundred feet in any direction. Moisture glistening off of the surrounding foilage as your breath bellows from your mouth in a cloud of steam. The crunch of leaves and decay under every footstep being the only sound to accompany the animal-like howl of the wind. Kinda’ creepy out here all alone, huh? That’s the power of Mountain Mirrors self titled album." - The Ripple Effect
"It is a perfect and delicious album to listen to and relax with a good glass of wine within reach."
"The slightly folky acoustic guitars, sweet drum cadences, subtle keyboard sounds, and most importantly Sanders' otherwordly vocals, when combined, do invite comparisons to names like Opeth, Nick Drake, Pink Floyd, and even Alice In Chains' unplugged material, but overall, the music presented on this disc is in a league all its own."
- Sea of Tranquility
"Mesmerizing, minimal, and sweeping, the music of Mountain Mirrors definitely leaves an impression. It is a sense of subtle Deja Vu; as I listen to this, I find myself wondering if I've traveled on the path this album conjures in my mind once or twice before. Sparse and hypnotic, this is the equivilent of a night full of surreal dreams. I can think of no other album I've heard this year more worthy of five stars. "
"there is something magic in this release, it's poetry really. Also, the deep melancholic voice of Jeff is really beautiful and for sure some of you will be touched by its quality and will have some good feeling when you'll listen to it."
"This is the kind of album that if it really clicks with you, you’ll totally fall for its unique mood and character and revisit the album for years to come. "
"The song craft is excellent and the choice of instruments to play this music is oh so tasty."
The Songs :: in Jeff's words:
Stay Evil ::
It's about following a spiritual path and finding some enlightenment. And how things the world perceives as good and evil are...relative.
The Demon's Eye ::
The lyrics to this song came in a flash of inspiration like I've never felt before. What does it mean to you?
Karmic Dogs ::
This is also about the relativity of good and evil. Maybe some bad deeds bring good karma. And the other way around.
Your Time Has Come ::
Imagine the innocent victims of a sadistic, power-mad ruler as they rise from the ground, laughing. Finally able to partake in Judgment Day.
Calm Before the Storm ::
This uses the Four Horsemen as a metaphor for how the world feels sometimes these days. Every time we turn on the damn news, it seems like Armageddon. And if you dig deep enough into a lunatic's prophesies, you'll find them happening everywhere.
Alone in a Crowd ::
We all know how it feels to be in a crowd of people and feel completely alone inside. For some people, it's all the time.
Deploribus Unum ::
Sometimes it feels like if there's a God, He, She or It has abandoned us. Or maybe we drove them away...then again, in an infinite universe, how much time can God devote to a parasitic human race?
Praying Mantis ::
This is the first song I wrote after "Lunar Ecstasy" - right after my grandfather passed away. Maybe the most lost I've ever felt in my life. I put it down and came back to it after seeing a documentary about the death of the great John Lennon...Shot in the back in front of the Dakota hotel by Mark Chapman. The working title for awhile was "Devil at the Dakota". I just didn't feel right releasing it under that title, so a meditation produced the title "Praying Mantis".
