Fragile Glass is a pleasant if saccharine prog-pop band with hints of Kansas and Mr. Mister sprinkled throughout. Too often on this album their sound is bright and poppy, lacking a certain gravity. One track, "Circle's Broken" could almost be a 80's sitcom title theme - of course, that guitarist/vocalist Steve Oliver looks like 80's teen idol Kirk Cameron may have something to do with that impression. (Though I was far from being a teen or reading teen magazines, this comparison struck me at the time I bought this album in '91).

This isn't really progressive and will turn off most progressive rock fans, whether their tastes are classic prog or modern neo-prog.
