If a picture paints a thousand words, then... if I could, I would... ... But I'd better not. What Radiant Records wrote was: Glass Hammer is back with a brand new lineup and an album of epic-length prog tracks. The 2010 release If marks the band?s return to classic symphonic-progressive rock; an album sure to please fans of the group?s earlier releases Chronometree, Lex Rex and The Inconsolable Secret. Hammond solos, Moogs, Mellotrons ? all the trademark sounds are back in place.

But If is no simple rehashing of previous Glass Hammer efforts. With the addition of vocalist Jon Davison, jazz-rock guitarist Alan Shikoh and session drummer Randall Williams, Glass Hammer co-founders Steve Babb and Fred Schendel have ?hit the reset button? and taken their music to an entirely new level.

The sixty-six minute opus features six tracks, culminating in the twenty-four minute long ?If The Sun," mastering by the legendary Bob Katz of Digital Domain, and stunning art-work by German designer Tom Kuhn.

Track listing:

Beyond, Within 11:44
Behold The Ziddle 9:11
Grace The Sky 4:29
At Last We Are 6:46
If The Stars 10:25
If The Sun 24:02
