ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Reverse Mirror Image is Paris Falls forth studio album. This album is a clear step forward from the prior three.
Here is a review from 29-95.com on the first single from the album.
The A-side of this quite attractive sea-green (glow-in-the-dark, apparently) disc is a cheery, bouncy but surprisingly lightweight piece of power-pop. Ray Brown’s forceful yet pleasant vocals can’t last for more than a minute or so, with about that much more devoted to a repeated two-measure guitar/keyboard riff. It’s fun but over very quickly. “It’s a Charade” bites off a little more, balancing a gritty acoustic guitar-driven verse with a chorus and electric solo that are melodically strong yet still economical in the extreme. Let it not be said that Paris Falls overstays their welcome. Would it surprise you to learn that this band once impersonated Rush? Comparatively, the fact that this is the band’s fourth single on their own label, Paper Weapons records, should be less of a shocker. -Daniel Mee
Here is another review from spacecityrock.com
While I’m pretty sure that’s not what it’s talking about, the A-side of the new 7-inch single from retro-rockers Paris Falls, “Big Surprise,” actually does find itself a little ways off from what I’ve come to think of as the band’s main musical neighborhood. There’s less of an overt psych-rock feel here, less of the Pink Floyd influence they flew proudly on Volume III, their last full-length, and in its place there’s more of a straight-ahead glam-pop sound.

The track bumps and stomps along, a bitter, half-snarled chunk of retro-sounding pop that’s far more David Bowie than Roger Waters. Guitarist Jen Brown plays it cool ’til about a third of the way through and then sends some nicely “Suffragette City”-like guitar lines spiraling through frontman Ray Brown’s layers of warm, fuzzy-sounding electric piano(?). The nearly-twinned guitars bring to mind vintage British power-pop, too, although the Paris Falls gang are far too soul-esque to head down that road.

B-side “It’s A Charade” does something similar, although it goes off in a different way entirely, riding a jangly, rustic-sounding groove that’s so ’60s folk-pop that I keep expecting Brown to start singing about how there ain’t no one for to give him no pain. In fact, I was thrown off by the vocals right at the start — they sound so different from the Paris Falls vocal sound I’ve heard ’til now that I honestly thought it might be drummer Mike DeLeon doing the singing this time around.
