3 stars Hmmmm! 2 cd's! 3 times listening! And still I don't know what I can say about this one! Good cover maybe (created by Roger Dean).

1 cd. : Two long songs! A Maker of crowns and The Knight of the north, very good lyric's on both, deep; thoughtful... Standard mind-blowing symphonic prog, pretty rhythmical and sound like some Yes and maybe ELP works. But only a little. Don't misunderstand me this is fresh, clean and not cloned music. 2 cd : Bunch of short songs but much better . Voice of Susie Bogdanowicz (become very fond on him- have a problem with female vocals) is more represented and makes Walter Moore sound better. Music on this one is in least strange, some new moment added; much folk influences (sound of harp is good one). In "The High Place" you can also hear some chores; all songs are with orchestral arrangements (for melt away).

The end is very beautiful. Having Caught A Glimpse is a song for it's self, this is the Glass Hammer at their best (shared vocals and organ -piano beginning are just delicious).

Double albums-double pleasure! Tennessee rockssssss !!!
