5.0 out of 5 stars If you like Philip Glass - You want this CD April 23, 1999
Format:Audio CD
While this CD get's no press, I think it is another great work from Philip Glass. I find it to be a fast moving high-energy work. To give perspective some of my other favorite Philip Glass CD's are : Song's from Liquid Day's, Photographer, Hydrogen Jukebox, Kundun, Glassworks and Einstein on the Beach. If you like Philip Glass, you will like this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! March 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is incidental music to a play, so it's all wordless [the voice of Linda Ronstadt being used as an instrument] and contained. It's Glass' take on a classic sci-fi score...his version of the original Star Trek theme. [that's why the electric keyboard sound...which is not "cheesy" but essential to the scale and mood of the piece] Sometimes dreamy, sometime frantic, it is full of invention and mood.

Great for driving!!

5.0 out of 5 stars 1000 Airplanes: A Spacy Opera November 22, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't sure what to think of this album after listening to it a couple of times. I found myself enamored with Track 10, however, a very fast, powerful, maddening tune, and felt the need to go back and re-evaluate the entire album. I found that the album is quick, very thematic, thought-provoking. In fact, I didn't know anything about the theme of the album, but as I listened, I felt I was on the brink of insanity. As it happens, a friend of mine mentioned that the opera is just that--about someone who is a bit whacked. This album is a top five of mine. It's a bit spacy, edgy, crazy. Linda Ronstadt's out-of-this-world vocals are awesome. If you like Philip Glass, you'll love this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Both Fun and Deep April 17, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Amazon Verified Purchase
This piece is both spiritual and fun, moving back and forth from the litany-like patterns typical of Glass's music and an openly fantastic landscape replete with wonder. A journey best heard loud. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1000 Airplanes is Wonderful July 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
"1000 Airplanes on the Roof" is wonderful. I bought it because I'm a huge Linda Ronstadt fan but now I have immense respect for Philip Glass as well. His composition here is brilliant. Linda's singing is brilliant. Glass and Ronstadt fans shouldn't be disappointed.
