CD Reviews

Accidental Pleasures
Joe Miramonti | Chicago IL | 12/15/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While using Tower's listening station for classical music, I thought I selected a Phillip Glass CD. When I heard the first section of Gordon's work I was transfixed, I stood there listening well into the second track. I had to have this CD. Imagine my delight to find this was a new artist I had not heard before. I hope I will find more work by Gordon to purchase soon. While bearing some resemblence to Glass's cycling movements, this album combines more variety of instruments and moods. And yes I am also a fan of the horns on track 3, unique and enchanting."
Powerful and atmospheric.

"The first track, "Weather One," has the force of an impending, violent storm. The quick, cutting sounds of the violin ensemble remind me a bit of the music from "Psycho." The weakest track is "Weather Three." The air raid sirens are eerie in small doses, but they are nerve-wracking in large ones. The last track, "Weather Four," is my favorite. The violins surge along in a minor key in a rhythm that I can only descibe as something like the rhythm of running."
A well made album

"I love the whole album including track 3. The sirens soung like opening tulips - opening and withering away in brown heat."
