“BORN FOR BLISS was founded in 1994 and it deserved popularity among lovers of the first wave of gothic rock or new wave. But it should be said that the band’s music also contains the echoes of clear dark wave, musical complexity typical for PINK FLOYD and melodic effects of pop rock. It feels like we become witnesses of birth and development of new style which is hard to find now in its original form because of the intensive infusions of dark electro and industrial. Maybe that’s why it’s so pleasant to listen to ‘Between Living & Dreaming’: live guitars, crystal piano passages, unobtrusive symphonic arrangements, rather diverse drums, deep heartfelt vocals and accessible lyrics make a listener forget of the reality at least for about 75 minutes however all the compositions are so impressive that could remain in one’s memory much longer then that. BORN FOR BLISS created a peculiar work indeed which is worthy to listen to again and again. 9.3 out of 10 points!”
