24th Art Rock Show: The Breaking Of The World

Glass Hammer - The Breaking Of The World

Het zeventiende studioalbum van Glass Hammer is een feit. ‘The Breaking Of The World’ wordt door Bob Katz van Digital Domain betiteld als het meest progressieve album van de band tot nog toe. Ons favoriete lijstje deze week: Glass Hammer (The Breaking Of The World), RPWL (Beyond Man And Time), Premiata Forneria Marconi (River of Life – The Manticore Years Anthology 1973-1977), Gentle Giant (Free Hand), Toe (For Long Tomorrow) and Therion (Vovin).

Scot Lade van The Fire Note: “Musically Glass Hammer gives the Prog fan everything they could hope for and then some. There’s not a bad song to be found here. It does seem like Babb and Schendel understand that this is one album that more than a clutch of die-hard fans might hear and approached it with more care than most of their uneven discography.

Although they may never be the most original band in the world, they are one of the best. Twenty-three years and sixteen albums have taught them a thing or two about songcraft. But what ultimately sets this record apart is its listenability. Consistantly solid, ocassionally brilliant, The Breaking Of The World makes an excellent entry point to anyone unfamiliar with this fine band or to 21st Century Prog. You could do a lot worse.”
