ONE WAY MIRROR: "Capture"
Label: Pavement 2015
Review by: Urban "Wally" Wallstrom
The cover of 'Lady Marmalade' sums up or should I say 'Capture' the essence of One-Way Mirror perfectly. Tacky. Bland. Pointless. I could go on and on since there's absolutely nothing here that would make me want to play this ever again. Listen to this and recall any shady moment that you'll have ever had and heard on any dodgy record during the dark ages in the history of rock and metal (the late nineties). One-Way Mirror manage to 'Capture' each and every genre from alternative, to metalcore, nu-metal, modern metal, industrial, rap-metal, and basic rock. And they are unfortunately shite at every single one of them. The key fact that they have sadly overlooked is that you need songs to go with your message and especially if it's a vivid and slightly deranged agenda. Arrangements all over the place and little or none structure. Let's not continue with the One-Way bashing and simply end by stating that "The Clock Is Ticking" is indeed the decent tune.
