A year ago, on Friday 26 March 2021 we released our debut album ‘Burdens Of The Mind’. We are very proud to share with you some of the reviews the album has received:

“What a splendid debut album, what’s next?!”
Erik Neuteboom at TVRDO progressive rock show (March 2021)

“Wat mij betreft mogen de beide heren dit als een begin van een reeks albums gaan zien …  dit duo, dat mij volledig heeft ingepakt!”
Marco van Lochem in Musicmeter.nl (April 2021)

– “Eens in de zoveel tijd krijg je een cd in handen die je wegblaast, je in de kladden grijpt en niet meer loslaat, bezit van je neemt … Dit is het begin van iets waarvan je hoopt dat het nooit ophoudt.”
Fred Nieuwesteeg in Progwereld (May 2021)

– “Voor de vele liefhebbers van de oer Nederlandse neo-prog is dit album een blinde en bijna verplichte aanschaf waard.”
Wouter van Hal in Rockportaal.nl (May 2021)

“Broers + Klazinga have delivered a high end album. For all who love symphonic rock, this album is a must have. All songs are incredibly well composed and have the tension we all love.
There is just one rating that is possible and that is 5 out of 5. What a great album.”

Aad Bannink in Backgroundmagazine.nl (May 2021)

– “The cd Burdens Of The Mind by Broers + Klazinga is “absolut empfehlenswert!”
Martin Dambeck of Empire Magazin, Germany (July 2021)

– “Bo album „Burdens Of The Mind” jest niewątpliwie jednym z najciekawszych tegorocznych płytowych wydawnictw z kręgu progresywnego rocka”
(English informal translation: the album Burdens Of The Mind is undoubtedly one of the most interesting of this year’s progressive rock releases).”
Mlwz.pl, radio Rockserwis.FM, a progressive rock show in Poland (August 2021)

– “… een heerlijk album. Die gaat zeker op mijn jaarlijstje komen (en niet alleen op het mijne naar wat ik zo links en rechts verneem).”
Gerard Berkers in Hemispheres.nu (September 2021)

– “It is a great release”
Troy T., Shades Of Noir, Musical Highlights Of 2021 (December 2021)

– “Jacob Broers and Gerben Klazinga have made one of the best prog albums of recent years with Burdens of the Mind. … An absolute must for fans of classic symphonic rock music.”
Alex Driessen in The Progressive Aspect (February 2022)

– “Musical Highlights Of 2021 . Broers + Klazinga – Burdens Of The Mind … it is a great release.”
SymfoCity (February 2022)

– “Broers + Klazinga = kippenvel2. …  ‘Burdens Of The Mind’ is een geweldig album, vol muzikaliteit en liefde voor de noot. Wiskundigen die de schijf beluisteren, zitten met hun handen in het haar. 1 + 1 = namelijk veel meer dan 2.”
Dick van der Heijde in Prog & Rock

– 流石のハイ・クオリティーかつバンドとは一線を画す独自の魅力を発揮した秀作です!!
(English informal translation: It is a masterpiece that demonstrates the high quality …)
