Mirrors is the sixth studio album by American hard rock band Blue Öyster Cult, released on June 19, 1979. It was the first BÖC album not produced by long-time producer and manager Sandy Pearlman, instead being produced by Tom Werman. After the success of 1976's Platinum Agents of Fortune, 1977's Gold Spectres and 1978's Platinum live effort Some Enchanted Evening, the fact that Mirrors struggled to reach Gold status disappointed band and label alike

Blue Öyster Cult (often abbreviated BÖC or BOC) is an American rock band formed on Long Island, New York in 1967, perhaps best known for the singles "(Don't Fear) The Reaper", "Burnin' for You", and "Godzilla. Blue Öyster Cult has sold more than 24 million records worldwide, including 7 million in the United States alone

Blue Öyster Cult tried a new producer on Mirrors, replacing longtime mentor Sandy Pearlman with Tom Werman, a CBS staffer who had worked with Cheap Trick and Ted Nugent. The result is an album that tries to straddle pop and hard rock just as those acts did, emphasizing choral vocals (plus female backup) and a sharp, trebly sound

Released June 19, 1979. What have the artists said about the album? Eric Bloom talked about the album in an interview for Music Radar: Sandy didn’t produce this one. Looking back, I’m not sure whether it was our decision or his, but we recorded it in California with Tom Werman.

Curse of the Hidden Mirror is the fourteenth studio album by Blue Öyster Cult. It was released on June 5, 2001, by Sanctuary Records. Its poor sales caused Sanctuary to drop the band; Blue Öyster Cult has not held a recording contract since. Cyberpunk author John Shirley returned to contribute lyrics to the album.

An analogy if you will;If BOC's first 3 studio albums were New York City.Then this 6th studio effort is Los Angeles.I think that also says something about this bands musical growth in between that time.This album confused some fans and their expectations, but that doesn't mean it's a bad album...because it's not.This album is the accumulation of a very successful rock band branching out a little bit and flirting with radio friendly Rock and Roll.New producer Tom Werman's slick production was also a a major factor that changed the trademark BOC sound...although sometimes with spectacular results e.g. I Am The Storm.Their are plenty of strong songs on Mirrors, even a few that could be considered in the pantheon of BOC greats, I Am The Storm, The Vigil, and The Great Sun Jester all have trademark BOC creativity and power, and include some of Donald Roesers finest rhythm playing, and soaring lead guitar.The title song Mirrors, and Moon Crazy fit well on the album and are tight, hook laden songs that are memorable and typical of this band.The more controversial songs are the ballads...In Thee, and Lonely Teardrops are of a more reflective and mellow nature than most BOC fans were prepared for, but both songs are quite musical and well written and produced...just not what most BOC fans were expecting or wanting from this band.And the albums opener Dr Music is a typical uptempo BOC opener not all that different than Spectres -"R U Ready To Rock". But the electronic drums and slick production seemed to once again surprise and confuse more than a few longtime fans. I personally like the song quite a bit and the song's amped up full potential was realized live in concert in arenas across the U.S.Another tricky song on this album was Albert Bouchard's catchy but very pop - Your Not The One ( I Was Looking For) another well written song... but maybe a little to tame for the Cult.Whatever you do don't dismiss this album based on other peoples reviews.Listen with an open mind and you might be quite surprised how good this album actually is.
For me this is the 3rd best album they ever did after Fire and Don,t Fear...the quality of the tracks are very good and the material soften downs a bit compared to the original 3 albums but for me they artistically the depth and diversity shows a new sensitivity and awareness of themselves.DR MUSIC and MIRRORS are the best known through live performances but in THE VIGIL,I AM THE STORM, IN THEE are three fantastic tracks full of top class vocals, melodies and musicianship that in my view were undervalued by many...A commercial flop but for me some great tunes make this a must have BOC album!
BÖC's somewhat misguided attempt to court the masses reaches it's fever pitch here. Abandoning their main producer and frequent lyricist Sandy Pearlman for Cheap Trick and Ted Nugent producer Tom Werman, the band tried to produce an album that sounded hip as possible and would put a huge dent in the charts, but for the most part they failed. Dr. Music, Mirrors, and You're Not The One sound unlistenably dated and even a few fantastic songs are marred by the plastic production and vanilla arrangements. In Thee in particular is a beautiful composition but is nigh ruined by the passionlessly doubled vocals and overly busy arrangement (luckily, it finally reached its full potential when it was rerecorded for the Blue Boys' twelfth studio album Heaven Forbid, becoming one of my all time favorite Cult tracks). Only Moon Crazy and The Vigil are true clasics, demonstrating their classic blend of prog rock and avant garde with unparralleled technique, though Lonely Teardrops is nearly there.
A total misfire, this record falls under the category of “what were they thinking?” It’s difficult to believe that the same band who created classics like “Tyranny & Mutation” and “Secret Treaties” could have come up with something like this dreck. Imagine the grief felt of the hardcore BOC fan, still apprehensive after the teetering “Spectres” upon hearing what had become of the formerly brilliant & creative Blue Oyster Cult. Gone were the innovative guitar & keyboard sounds, interplay, tension & hard rocking excitement, replaced with banal songs, boring production and a commercial mentality complete with backup singers. Only “The Vigil” is vaguely reminiscent of the earlier BOC. At least they didn’t go Disco. Mercifully, the band would attempt to get back to their roots on the next record but their former glory was gone forever.
