If you've found yourself here, at this album, wondering if it's worth the $25; stop. Just press Buy Album and slip into the impenetrable House of Glass. For those less brave but still adventurous enough to travel just a bit more, find your way to the score for The Illusionist. It's simply incredible (make a special note for the song "Orange Tree"). You won't regret it. Like a timeless black suit, Philip Glass can be pulled out for any occasion.
A heart-breaking record. Highly recommended!
Fuel for the Mind
I find that this album, along with most of Philip Glass’s compositions, are some of the most stimulating pieces of music ever made. His music has always helped me study and come up with great new ideas for my own projects in the realm of film. Highly recommended!
