"The Shadowheart Mirror" (Ambient; 2009)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Oceans of Night delivers a brilliant performance with "The Shadowheart Mirror." Right from the start, the music transformed me and delivered me to a tranquil place and, for an experience to do that (without the use of drugs), is something special indeed.

The music has a distinct Queensryche feel to it, but is darker and edgier. The band uses keyboards to their full advantage and, combined with high quality vocal performance, creates a very good musical experience.

Oceans of Night is the brain child of Scott Mosher and Scott Oliva. Those two put their heads together and have delivered a high energy, radically powered performance that is simply brilliant. Progressive rock to the ninth degree makes the sound larger than life and very easy to listen to.

Allow me to take a moment to personally to thank the members of Oceans of Night for a truly memorable listening experience.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
