CD Reviews

Still my favorite CD
Lisa A. Flaherty | Florida | 01/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Out of all the music in my collection -- from classical to alternative to international to pop -- this is still and always my favorite.The music is uplifting and disturbing at the same time. I saw the movie a few years ago, and would love to purchase it. If you were lucky enough to have seen it, you'll recall the wonderful, and disturbing images, that mirror the film's soundtrack.Even though some people today associate this music with "The Truman Story," it transcends and precedes that. The music stands alone. Just popping it into the CD player in rush hour traffic makes me feel like I'm doing something monumental. This CD has power and soul, and I say that about no other music I've yet heard.I just can't wait until they bring the video back into print!"
Ignorance No Barrier
Bryan L. White | Duncanville, Texas USA | 02/19/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I frankly admit that I dont know anything about 20th Century serious composers-I mainly listen to jazz-but this album is astonishing. I have to admit that some of Glass' other works,like "The Photographer," don't excite me very much. But the music on this CD is wonderful.On the strength of this album and the other soundtracks for this trilogy I've been carefully buying other Glass CDs. If some customer stumbles on to this album and is intimidated or turned off by Glass' reputation as a "serious" composer,let me assure them that this is an album that almost anyone can sit down and listen to and enjoy. Don't let his reputation as a "classical" composer who works with orchestras prevent you from grabbing this incredible CD. You don't have to be a highbrow to listen to this"

"This is some of Philip Glass' best work. Less hypnotically repetitive than Canyon music or Thin Blue Line and capable of standing alone as a concert piece. The Anthem motif has been heard time and again: including multiple movie trailers where they haven't figured out the final score to Truman Show and TV ads. It builds to a wonderful climax with a Moazzin calling the faithful to prayer. Stunning! They should release the DVD. The VHS is [bad]"
