5 stars The realm of keyboards! As a lover of classic prog, I can only love this wonderful album! Superb melodies, incredible keyboards, excellent sounds of guitar and bass, all very beautiful and flawlessly played . I honestly do not understand some low ratings given to this album: I read several negative arguments, in my opinion quite wrong. Without naming anyone, a reviewer says that at the beginning of the century were produced hundreds of albums like this one: I think instead that Glass Hammer, in particular with this disc, are unique and consistent with their search for vintage melodies and sounds. Another reviewer said that the voice sounds too pop: it is partly true, but music is the only real strength of Glass Hammer, the voice in my opinion it's not so important; moreover, other very good bands have voice not really prog, just think about "Bon Jovi like" Neal Morse of Spock's Beard and Transatlantic. Other reviewers say that Glass Hammer are not very innovative and are clones of Yes and ELP: for my part, I loved so much that musical period, but I think it lasted too short, maybe 4-5 years(1970 to 1974), then welcome to the new bands that refer to that period and those sacred cows, especially if music produced by these new bands is of the highest level as that of Glass Hammer!
