3 stars Lots of haunting vocals, sparse programming, especially recommended to listeners who like 50 Words For Snow.

This is primarily a vocal album. Hogarth is often barely accompanied by other sounds. The atmosphere is quite haunting. To me the album seems extremely personal, dark and sparse. As a vocalist Hogarth tells stories here more than that he sings songs. I think it is a great album, one that invokes a lot of feelings.

In my opinion, this album is remarkably similar to 50 Words For Snow by Kate Bush in mood and style. That's why I would recommend it to anyone who likes that album. That might be a very subjective assessment though. Not The Weapon But The Hand seems to be a very emotional affair after all, especially for a prog album.
