Don't get me wrong I like all of the pieces here but I'd call the album sonic rebellion only if I was trying to be ironic. Lets face it. Glass's Symphony no 4 and Adam's Shaker Loops are good but hardly rebellious. Of course it is a kind of rebellion agains the likes of Pendereki and Verese, two of the better tracks on the album. A more fitting title for this collection would be "Freshman 101: Survey of the late 20th Century". Agan these are mostly good pieces but the title of the collection is misleading.
Enter At Your Own Risk
This is an album not for the faint of heart, although the faint of hearing might enjoy it because some of the 'noise' on this album is quite loud. There are a few pieces on this disc I just can't wrap my ears around, but there are some tracks that are sublime. Interesting, at least, this modern stuff which makes for a neat concept album.
