Hangover Paradise - Mirrors (2013)

The debut album from this Dutch band.

Hangover Paradise is a six piece band with two keyboardists, bass, drums, guitars and English vocals. Male vocals. 

Two keyboardists can mean orchestral over the top symphonic prog. In this case, it means pretty naked melodic neo-prog. The music is bordering to AOR and pomp prog too. Saga springs to mind here. 

This one hour long album gives us some very good vocals and some good melodies too. The music is on the soft side where metal is wholly absent. The music is also very romantic. 

The music still got a lot of substance and I can understand why this album is so popular among critics. I am missing some great songs here and is not happy about a couple of substandard songs. Hence my rating. I hope the band will continue to release albums.
