Prog Reviewer
4 stars Dronescaping through utterly maddening industrial noises and blissful (almost ritual/religious like) ethereal sounds.

Hall of Mirrors' "Forgotten Realm",2009, presents both opposite sonic worlds to the extreme, which helps to enhance both fully , without diminishing their true power of expression by not blending these extreme electronic languages. Therefore the contrasts between tracks or sections are a constant which helps to enrich the sensation of witnessing both worlds objectively.

On the instrumental side this release's guitar work guides most of the heavenly like sections as the addition of flute and didgeridoo, while the field recordings bring in the earthly country side sensation and electronic noises move along their respective spectrum's colors from, the audible and the inaudible, White noise to Pink to Brown to Blue to Violet and Grey.

Creative musical ideas flow freely but it is impossible not to sense the perfectly tight music composition behind this solidly structured yet seeminly aleatoric, abstract and transparent dronescapes.

As far as the always hard task to rate by 5 numbers and adding also that I had already been aquainted, almost simultaneously, with this duo/ensemble's next future masterwork, I will strongly recommend it as an excellent addition to your electronic music collection and as a highly coherent, contemporary and original Prog-Electronic work by its own.

****4.5 PA stars.
