Band mastermind Ralph Hubert had the following to say about the new album:

For me, music doesn't start with A and end with Z, it's an ongoing process. In this respect, you could call 'In A Mirror Darkly' the continuation of the 'Wanderer' theme, but it's no copy, it's an independent recording.

Each Mekong album sounds unique and forward-looking in the original sense of the term. As a composer, I consciously allow myself to drift to be able to consistently explore new horizons.

Typically Mekong Delta, the new numbers all have a playing time of between five and seven minutes. As far as I am concerned, that’s just the right time frame to gain sufficient stylistic depth without pushing the envelope or creating artistic ambiguities. I feel that we’ve once again found the right mix of complexity and uninterrupted leitmotiv.

First obvious improvement with respect to the last album, is the clearly titled track list and the number of songs.

Looking forward to this too.

Still gotta check all their early stuff.

Art is terrible, however...
