Reflections is another debut which lacks a lasting impact because of its unoriginality, and more precisely, its lack of ability to open another door in a proggy landscape. It mulls around Paradise Lost, Katatonia, and Green Carnation, toward the point of simply lifting their hero’s favourite track sections and cutting them side by side. In another light, Twilight’s Embrace are technically excellent. They flaunt an instrumental nous, weighty production, and confident songsmithing to knit their progressive batch together – but it’s these very talents which leave you wanting more. Heaps and heaps of promise, and a few kinks to iron out.

6/10 Powerplay issue #130
