Progressive-rock album from this five-piece band that combines technicality, melodic vocals, and epic compositions. Highly recommended for fans of Dream Theater and Rush.

54 months is a long time to work on an album. But that is exactly how long it took Hourglass to finish their new double album "Oblivious to the Obvious." Four and a half years of writing, recording, mixing, mastering and the result is 139 minutes worth of music. Even though it is a lot of music, it is only 10 songs. Hourglass has never worried too much about the length of their songs, and epic songs have always been a part of what the band does.

"Oblivious to the Obvious" is no exception.  The album has a little of everything, from heavy metal riffs and screaming vocals, to laid back piano and acoustic passages, and some very tasteful groove sections. Vocal harmonies are scattered throughout the album as are many guitar, keyboard, and even bass solos. There is something for everyone on "Oblivious to the Obvious."

    I've patiently waited 5 years for Hourglass to put another truly awesome release out -- THANK YOU GUYS. This 2-CD set hits on about every nook and cranny of the prog genre that tells me one thing: Hourglass is a HUGE player in the progressive music world. I love this release big time. This is one extremely talented band. I'm not an expert on who's who in the music world, but I would sure like to know why the name "Hourglass" is not spoken more of in all the reviews I read (i.e., comparisons), the people I talk to, and in the distribution centers. THESE GUYS PROX -- nuf said! It's a great pleasure and honor to this "Oblivious to the Obvious" in high rotation on my internet radio station.
