1 stars The debut album from Glass Hammer.

The career of Glass Hammer started with an overly ambitious concept album, this seventy odd minutes long album. Another album based on Tolkien. One of many hundreds Tolkien based albums. Most of them are over the top and borderline insane. This album falls into that category.

The story here is driven by narratives and some keyboards which reminds me about Saga. The keyboards sound is OK. The spoken words too. The vocals are OK too.

There are some good melody lines here. But after x amount of listening to this seventy two minutes long album, you feel ready to quit albums reviewing altogether and take up angling for trouts in Mongolia. In short; this album is faaaaar too long. And far too boring too. It is a borderline turkey, but I have heard worse albums than this. Although not by far. This album is only for Glass Hammer, Tolkien and symph prog collectors. One or two stars ? I fall for one star.

1.5 star
