Notes: (****) Having previously worked with Jon Anderson, Glass Hammer acquired another high-pitched vocalist in Jon Davison. This was his first release with the band (although sessions for The Inconsolable Secret re-recording were earlier). Beyond the writing credits given above, Schendel has said the album "was about 95% written by the time Jon and Alan came onboard." Davison's main contributions seem to have been lyrics for "Grace the Skies" and "If the Stars", some lyrical input on "Behold the Ziddle", and input on lyrics and melody for "If the Sun".
