Ten letters, twelve across; free form feral velocity emits electrical funbuzz, hmmmm got it H O U S E W I V E S. Bizarrely after playing this record I played Ben Gesserit's Femmes Aux Veux d'Argile (Alain Neffe) at the wrong speed & it sounded uncannily like HOUSEWIVES......Insane coincidence!!

Prior to the release of The Mirror, Gnod had generally been a long-form, krautrock-influenced psychedelic collective, putting out tribal rhythm, pagan rituals on LP. That's why the first 30 seconds of The Mirror are so shocking: This is repetitive, heavily political, metallic post-punk. It sounds less like Amon Duul and more like Metal Box-era PiL or Cop-era Swans, with angry sloganeering about the rise of fascism shouted above the din. Levrikon

An absolutely astounding work. It sends my consciousness to another plane for the entirely of its run time. The 45 minutes that make up tracks 4, 5, and 6 are like nothing else I've ever heard. Levrikon
