4 stars If progressive rock has ever tickled your fancy, and bands like Yes, Kansas, ELP, and Camel bring back fond memories, Glass Hammer will kick your nostalgia into full gear with this album.

Recorded LIVE in one take at the Trenton War Memorial at NEARFest 2003, "Live at NEARFest" will not dissapoint long time fans of Glass Hammer.

Featuring music from albums "Chronomotree," "Perelandra," and nearly all of the highly acclaimed "Lex Rex," the players in this group prove once and for all that they can create the same incredible music live, as they do in the studio.

Each song was meticulously mastered track by track and mixed to give the sound a HUGE live feel, but at studio quality (GH is known for their post-production skills).

Highlights of this album include a 'once-in-a-lifetime' performance of "Portait (He Knew)" featuring Kansas' own Richard Williams on guitar, as well as a moving 3 song set featuring a full 18 person choir! The final 3 tracks are NOT to be missed.

This album is a great choice to fill the collection of Glass Hammer enthusiasts and is a good starting point for anyone wanting to know their music better.
