Ghinzu: Mir­ror Mir­ror

Townsville Bulletin - - Savvy -

Ghinzu’s third stu­dio al­bum is best de­scribed as elec­tro-rock. The songs switch be­tween elec­tronic and more tra­di­tional pop rock, with syn­the­siz­ers and key­boards thrown into the mix. The band even takes a brief trip into the realm of punk-rock with the en­er­getic and an­gry Kill the Surfers. Con­sid­er­ing that Mir­ror Mir­ror was in­tended as an un­in­hib­ited ex­per­i­men­tal al­bum for Ghinzu, there is no sign of the self-in­dul­gence that some­times fea­tures on many ex­per­i­men­tal al­bums. Even the six-minute in­stru­men­tal In­ter­stel­lar Orgy is in­ter­est­ing with­out be­ing pre­ten­tious. A good blend of club beats, pop-rock and elec­tron­ica makes Mir­ror Mir­ror an al­bum to lis­ten to just about any­where. – LUKE BAIRD
