While very far from 10cc of the 1970’s, this is a nice album of melodic music that grows on you after several listens. Personally I don’t think this CD needed the rework of I’m Not In Love, but surprisingly it’s not out of place with the feel of the rest of the disc. Stewart and Gouldman have always had a knack for melody and it hits you like a tidal wave on Mirror Mirror. Peace In Our Time is one of my favorite tracks on the album reminding me of Cutting Crew or Tears For Fears, and really comparisons to several quality 80’s bands from China Crisis to Icehouse would not go amiss with Mirror Mirror.
This is actually the first CD I have played (seriously) after a highly emotional couple weeks and it satisfied a need for quality music played to perfection, with positive lyrics and upbeat feel.
Just what I needed.
