3 stars The eponymous debut release from Willlowglass gives one an exciting glimpse into an artist who seems to be able to bridge the beloved prog music of Genesis, Camel, and even KC & Nektar in the early-to-mid-1970s and the much more mature second release, Book of Hours (2008). The highs on this disc are extremely high (e.g., the ends of "A Blinding Light" [6/10], "Waking the Angels"[7/10], some sections of "Remembering" [5/10], and the whole of "Garden" [10/10]), but the brief interludes "Peace" "Interlude No. 1," "Into the Chase," and "The End") are a bit too simple while "Into the Chase" [4/10] and "Tower of the King's Daughter" [2/10] simply fail to draw one in. Plus there's something just not right about the drumming-as if it is too simple and reserved, just fill. Still, a wonderful preview of things to come. Worth a listen, maybe even owning, but, essential or excellent addition? No. 3.0.
