 A stunning album. Did you not describe the last three songs because it gives a lot away? When The Conspiriacy Of Seeds came in the first time and starts to reveal itself fully I nearly screamed. I'm interested to know where you found flaws in The Fall Of Math though. I regarded that as outstanding an album as this - revelatory in many respects, and a natural fusion of electronica and rock, but the fact that they have developed through the three albums to end up here is a distinct achievement which deserves to set them apart from pretty much every other act. I certainly can't name a band that sound as remotely convincing as this. The Battles refererence is warranted, but a fair few tracks on Mirrored sound somewhat contrived to me. I think it's the jazz thing.

It's an obvious thing to say, but this album even destroys the big ideas too.

 This is a great album, but I don't think The Fall of Math was flawed at all really. Also, the last track was a collab with Circle Takes the Square who you guys foolishly gave a C *tisk tisk*. They should have got a mention here I reckon.

 Knowing nothing about this band, its name along looks like an emo band. But I'm sure they're good.
