4 stars This is another excellent release from Glass Hammer, and it is recommended for progressive rock fans. They get an A+ for production and musical direction on Chronomonaut, and this may just be the most ambitious release they have ever done. The sax and horns makes this their jazziest release, with a ton or prog and a sliver of blues. I love the direction that Glass Hammer is taking with this release, and feel they should continue on these lines with more of a jazz-rock vibe like a proggier Chicago. There are no bad tracks on Chronomonaut, and it takes the listener on an eclectic adventure with a ton of variety. "1980 Something" is a standout track that features Susie Bogdanowicz on vocals, and starts with some static to take you back in time to your 1980 LP years. It has some excellent guitar strumming and solos, as well as the excellent performance by Susie. The last track is the 10 minute "Fade Away" with Matthew Parmenter on vocals, which is an amazing ending to Chronomonaut. Overall, there is so much to enjoy here, and I have no issue calling this the best Glass Hammer release on ambition alone. 4.5 stars.
