From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars n my opinion the British band GLACIER in his entitled album "Monument" brings in their compositions a type of attempt of transforming to progressive rock in something that approaches more than a popular format of music.. Leaving aside some characteristics of the good and old progressive rock, such as sudden changes of rhythm s and more complicated vocal and instrumental harmonies and melodies reducing like this the resonant complexity in most of the tracks. In that way, brings me the memory bands as ASIA AND STYX and the influences that these same bands brought in their albums (YES, KING CRIMSOM, ELP etc...), and in some moments something of the space-rock of bands as ELOY in very smaller scale.To reinforce the presence of those influences the guitar player Jonh Youdalee and the keyboard player Dave Kidson shows a very approximate style of Steve Howe / Steve Hackett and Rick Wakeman/Keith Emerson. But, the rythimic session is very simple !!! I consider as the best moments of the disk the musics "Think of England", "Monument" and "East of Arabia." My rate is 3 stars!!!
