EDITORS’ NOTES

Making Mirrors is Gotye's eclectic-but-polished exploration of modern pop possibilities. Among songwriter/bandleader Wally De Backer's fusions are the electro reggae of “State of the Art,” the Motown garage rock of “I Feel Better,” and hushed, waltzing trip-hop of “Smoke and Mirrors.” “Somebody That I Used To Know” has one of the most persuasive melodies of the last 20 years, but the entire album runs with seamless continuity, right to the final pensive notes of “Bronte.”
