2.0 out of 5 stars Unlistenable 21 Sep 2011
By R. Kay
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love watching Evelyn Glennie on TV and bought this expecting it to capture something of her passion and her rapport with percussion. However, percussion without visuals is the aural equivalent of someone drumming their fingers on a table or tapping a metal central heating pipe with their foot. There is rhythm (sp?) here but no tunes (obviously, enough - you can't play a melody on a bongo) and so the whole thing feels experimental and rather aimless. Sorry, Evelyn, you're brilliantly talented but I cannot endure the relentless, disjointed time signatures and the unapproachable awkwardness of this CD. Is that my fault? Well, put this CD on in a crowded room and see how long it takes before someone asks for something easier on the ear.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some hits, Sir - some palpable hits! 31 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Absolutely splendid stuff from Glennie, with a couple of exceptions: in my opinion it must be a positive advantage when working with Bjõrk to be profoundly deaf - also when listening to her. Otherwise a delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless 10 Nov 2003
By D. Fineman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For technical mastery and seamless execution, Evelyn Glenie has no peer in percussion. Underappreciated is her tremendous athletic ability realized in an infinity of strokes without the performance decay that one would expect of merely human muscles.
While all the selections on these generous disks are worthy, their sequencing sometimes seems irrational: moods, styles, and genre are strangely mixed. Most of the recordings are excellent, but a few lack the finesse of tonality necessary to catch her subtle variations.
If possible, see her in person: she is also a great dramatist who understands silence as well as tone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knock-out CD !! Changes my concept of percussion -- 12 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Forget that she's 90% deaf and can't make out tone. This gal's something like a Mozart, or a Bobby Fischer. Wonderful stuff !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Evelyn Glennie: Greatest Hits 4 Feb 2000
By Adam Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A great CD from an amazing percussionist. After listeing, it is easy to tell why she is looked up to by the percussion community. This is a great collection of her best playing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Glennie 12 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD contains some great playing of the marimba, set and other percussion instruments but also has a lot of junk on it! Some of the songs leave you going "what the heck was she thinking?" Glennie is a great musician and can undoubtly "play" but this is not her best stuff on two CD's.
