At its best this album is simply unstoppable - album opener 'Sanctuary' in particular is a force of nature.

The slight weaknesses here are the vocals, which are merely perfunctory, and the fact the album just keeps churning and churning, hitting the same exact sweet spot and wearing down the ol' pleasure receptors.

Still, technically excellent and this release certainly has enough highlights to satisfy.

Crunchy guitars and strong vocals. It feels shorter than it is because of how good this is.

This is one of the first albums I listened to that wasn't shity pop punk and I only picked it because of the album cover. It would be an understatement to say this album changed the way I think about music.

On Reflections, Elder have perfected the progressive sound they strived for on 2015’s lore. The massive songs, and grand ambition alongside Elder’s doom-sided heaviness and enthralling riffs make for one of the best albums of 2017 in my eyes.

Best Tracks: Sanctuary, The Falling Veil, Starving Off Truth, Blind
Worst Tracks: Sonntag
