For the follow up to their debut 'The Beginning', the Australian band have downsized to a trio and downsized their sound into rock with a little bit of funk, occasionally pulsating like on "All Things" which introduces the album. On "Fifty Zillion" which looks at love and points towards the cross as the ultimate demonstration, the band get funky but although this second album has occasional flashes of genius, as in the two minute instrumental workout "Snooze", where the band do anything but fall asleep. I'm left feeling a little sad that STL have abandoned a lot of the funk of their debut. Even with some fine songs like "Time" which smoothly glides along. I'm left with the feeling that there's something missing when I look closely into 'Mirror'.
