Is Philip Glass really conceited or does the word "glass" just work surprisingly well with everything? Either way, this record is called Glassworks and characterises its composing protagonist as a gentle, quietened artist, interested in crafting meditative and minimal works. Recommended for the Glass fan who wants to take it easy, for once. You deserve a day off.

8/10 Customer review, 7th February 2015

Glass's methodology is wholeheartedly expressive, providing the composer with ample space to slowly build and play on different moods within the work, making the listener conscious of individual notes, instruments, and rhythms within the ensemble. The only thing I can think to compare this with is, perhaps, flavours. Either you can eat a piece of chocolate hurriedly and grasp the totality of its flavour; or you may calmly savour it and, perhaps, find a nice caramel centre, unmask the interplay of various textures, and discover satisfaction in its simplicity.
