5 stars Glass Hammer is back with a new album called "Shadowlands". Their lengthy compositions have come to a peak on this album. There are 5 songs that range from 7:30 to 20:26 minutes. But most important of it all, they keep the interest the whole songs through with lots of variation, memorable melodies and lengthy intricate instrumental passages. Here they have managed to write an album with the same high standard as their "Chronometree" (2000) and "Lex Rex" (2002) albums. The composer qualities are almost as good as The Flower Kings, only that The Flower Kings have an even more frequent release schedule.

I can't understand why Glass Hammer hasn't reached a bigger audience. I don't think they are considered being one of "the big names" in progressive rock, but they surely belong among them. Glass Hammer is to me one of the absolutely best American progressive rock bands today, with not a single bad album in their catalogue.
