Good comments all. In addition, I really enjoyed the mix of the female vocals on Run Lisette. That was some surround!

Bom dia! You come from a land of wonderful music. Have you heard Gal Costa (may be to old for you)?

Good suggestions all. I, too, would spring for a Christmas album by Shreddy (or Glass Hammer). To the list, I would add the Christmas album that Michael W. Smith did years ago. I can't remember the title but it was largely a choral work.

I became a Hammerhead because of your wonderful music. I tend to ignore lyrics because most of them are terrible these days. But Glass Hammer lyrics are always thoughtful--even profound. I would like to hear a little about how the muse works in this process. Of course, anyone who writes about Domain...

Just saw this topic today, always nice to see a long time Yes fan discover and enjoy GH. It seems a natural that diehard Yes fans would like this stuff, and it seems slowly but surely some are becoming fans. I am amazed in the internet age that some classic prog fans are not aware of the current pr...

I'm gradually coming to like GH even more than Yes (hard to believe). I especially enjoy, as wrote in my post, the epic pieces, and GH has a bunch. I suppose (at least for now) that my favorite is 'Behind the Great Beyond' as I really enjoy the range of playing in it, not to mention the subject of ...

Welcome, Kadlar! Very thoughtful commentary, right on the mark. I have been a serious Yes fan since Close to the Edge--that was the album that progged me for good. So I've been riding that train about 35 years. I got into Glass Hammer via internet prog radio, just about the time Chronometree was rel...

Round table review at DPRP

Major prog releases generate 'roundtable' reviews at the Dutch Progressive Rock Page, where two or three reviewers all look at the same album. For Culture of Ascent, it was a rare occurrence--four reviewers did the roundtable! That alone shows that they think CoA is a major event in the prog world. ...

Further impressions

Interesting comments. I have been out of country, so I may have missed it, but I haven't seen any reference to Sam Karnick's review: http://www.stkarnick.com/ (Posted Oct.2--scroll down a few pages) Karnick also sees a higher level of inspiration in CoA, similar to this review. Karnick does not hand...
