The Ethereal Mirror Comments

level   (90/100)
판타지 스토너..오지시절 블랙사바스가 디오의 판타지테마로 노래를 만든거같다
level   (90/100)
개성 만점인 헤비메탈~! 둠/스토너 계열을 이 음반으로 처음 만났음.
level   (80/100)
아스트랄한 둠메탈.
level   (90/100)
기존의 둠메탈 양식에서 벗어나 둠이라는 접시를 밑에 깔고 여러가지 요소들을 잘 섞어놓은 느낌이다. 이런 음악을 캐씨드랄 아니면 누가 할까. 비슷한것도 들어본적이 없다.
level   (90/100)
블랙 사바스식 사운드의 진화와 완성. 커세드럴 최고의 앨범이라는데 동감.
level   (100/100)
najlepší album Catheralu
level   (80/100)
좀 애매한 앨범이다. 미드나잇 마운틴같이 대놓고 뽕짝을 들려주는 곡들이 있는가 하면 엔터더웜즈나 판타즈마고리아같은 훌륭한 둠 넘버들도 포진되어 있는 앨범.
