4.0 out of 5 stars It's a Glass world!, 24 Sep 2010
By

(TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: The Low Symphony (Audio CD)
Although Bowie and Eno form the 'start point' for this album, Glass (as he explains in his notes) uses this as a point from which to develop ideas of his own, which gradually cohere into a complete symphonic movement. Although there are clear echoes of Bowie/Eno, this is very much a classical piece, with Glass' trademark pulsing, driving rhythmns, and slow, rolling melodies. Rich, relaxing stuff, well performed and recorded. Just not exceptional enough to deserve the full five stars. Well worth acquiring if you enjoy Glass.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great interpretation!, 26 July 2001
This review is from: The Low Symphony (Audio CD)
The tracks on the album are not just classical versions of the songs from LOW but great intrepatation of the music written by David Bowie and Brian Eno for the groundbreaking album LOW (1977). We also must thank RYKO-DISC for putting 'Some are' as a bonus track on their CD release. The track was not on the original release of LOW but Philip Glass did used it in his syphony and I think it became the best part of this symphony.
