Re: IF ... a review.

This new Glass Hammer album is very deep both musically and lyrically. I’ve heard it said that prog is the ‘thinking-man’s music’ and this album is not unlike its predecessors (Shadowlands, Lex Rex) in that it asks those philosophical questions of, “What does dwell within me?” and “Who does my song...

Re: Preview

And....the voice of Jon, resembles a little the voice of Jon. Yes, that Jon. Yes, from the band behind the last comma. Yes! We Have Glass Hammer! Three thumbs up, guys! It does resemble Jon. I also detect a little Carl Groves when he is in a lower register... Three thumbs up from here, too. That me...

Aswas is dead on with his assessment of Cross and Crucible (right down to the Yes riff). Very thoughtful, superb music. Buy it immediately.
