Philip Glass

A beautiful album: pure, melodic, atmospheric and charming.

This all piano recording is some of the most minimal of all Glass compositions - so in order to find this appealing the listener should be a decided fan of minimalism. That being said, it is fine music indeed, Glass uses his bittersweet motifs throughout the recording, lots of repetition on a few basic chords. Mad Rush is I believe one of his best, most signature works of all time, because it totally captures his
use of counterpoint to an effect of an ethereal auditory ambience. - By Roland
