5 stars The comparisons with Yes can't be avoided here but I think that only adds to this album. It's melodic mix of soundscapes and virtuoso playing delivers top class prog rock. Yes, Jon Davison's voice sounds like Jon Anderson but he also has his own personality which comes through regularly. I bought this album along with their next release Cor Cordium but this is the one I keep returning to. The last track, "If the Sun", at 24 minutes is a master class of pure classic prog which lifts the listener from start to finish. In fact, the entire album is a triumph for Glass Hammer and it deserves top marks.
