This is really good, nice to see them continue dabbling with more melodic and post-metal sounds, this is at a very similar level of quality to Limbo

I like this album, but it's not been the easiest for me to get into tbh. I admit to begin with I wasn't blown away by the rest of this album after the first track, I found the song structures to get a wee repetitive and tiresome, but eventually the emotion behind the structure hit me, and it's definitely grown on me now for sure.

The build up for the opening song is phenomenal, and is still the main highlight for me, although the vocals also sound incredible, there's so much passion about them

Gaerea are one of the bands I discovered here and I am eternally grateful to Metalstorm for that. Limbo was great and Mirage follows that path. It's not just mare copy of its predecessor. It builds and adds to it. And as usual with Gaerea it's not easy listen and I like bit of a challenge. Solid 9 from me

Not enjoying this as much as Limbo. The suffocating production doesn't work here with the less intense moments like it did with Limbo. Also it's a bit too long for me.
