5 stars An excellent introduction to Glass Hammer.

Although too short (only an hour long), this DVD will plunge you front row of a show filmed in a humble pub. Yeah, I know, not the coolest place to hang out but still very enjoyable. Don't let the low budget special effects (in fact, there's none) discourage you. Behind a clumsy approach hides a tremendous effort to put on a good show. Because it is a true gem to find such a high level of skills. Oh yeah, these guys show what they are capable of! Close your eyes and you'd swear on your cat's head that's play-back. Only the minor differences from the album could testify this is not a recording.

Oh! I get it! The whole budget went into the sound and the recording system!! The WHOLE budget, you'll see. This is a DVD for technical fans who wants to get better by looking how the band plays. The drummer Matt is especially good, wherever he comes from. Steve Babb is true to himself, concentrating on his bass parts and providing most of the vocal parts. Schendel does a very, very, very, very nice job on keyboards, switching from one to another to another. Walter Moore is in my humble opinion the best jack-of-all- trades in modern prog. And to see it is believing it. This guys plays drums, keyboards, guitar (quite well by the way) and has the most gripping, intense and poweful voice. Oh wow, when he and the girls sing Heaven, it's like a whirlwind.

Cute girls with fairy voices give a solid support throughout the whole show. Honestly, I couldn't figure the band without that female presence. Glass Hammer is no longer Babb and Schendel but also the girls with them.

Once again, I strongly suggest Glass Hammer for best progressive rock underdog!

4 stars Their best live act on stage, witnessing both the "golden period" regarding "Chronometree" and "Lex Rex" (above all this latter for its importance as a personal "emulation of their own" concerning the music of ELP and Yes)- which is well worth checking out after all!! Certainly We are just a little bit disappointed after the controversial album "Three Cheers For The Broken-Hearted", whose music and ensemble as well (apart from the good vocalist Susan) could be their definitive choice for the future and I don't know whether it's satisfying or less, talking about the preferences of the old fans...well I hope that They will be able to produce such a good stuff like that unique of the early period (even though you could prefer the old stuff live by the original Yes, but nevermind...). However the present performance within an interesting DVD such as "Lex Live", is an important example of their skill live. Unfortunately their technique has been forgotten in the recent times, but probably the new ensemble of G.H. is looking for a personal music path and a new place too, within the modern progressive world (for me too it's the same, cause I know- as a musician and symphonic composer- how difficult it is, nowadays!!)...

Moreover I like to make a special mention both for the beautiful album cover and the good video and sound master as well...anyway, perhaps the new ensemble will decide to come back to their roots and the present "Lex Live" won't be an episode apart concerning their career! So you can buy it, at the end!

4 stars It is hard not to love this great piece of live footage, as "Lex Rex" is one of my all time favourite albums. "Lex Live" has solidified my love for "Lex Rex", as not only does it help connect with the music, it is also evident from the footage that the band know what they are doing, and more i ...

4 stars I highly anticipated GLASS HAMMER'S "Lex Live" DVD, having viewed a clip ("One King") from the official Band site. What I saw and experienced then, was carried over to the entire DVD and I was not disappointed. "Lex Live" is 122 minute DVD in which the first hour is devoted to the concert ... (read more)
