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!
