First of all, this track is incorrectly labeled. It's Act III not Act II. Act II is the one featuring the violin solo. It's an ok performance, but the original Sony recording is much more intense and gutsy. This track is free, so you might as well get it. But, more of the brass and strings are replaced by keyboards on this version (a smaller ensemble). Even the synths/organs are more rich and electrifying on the older recording. Overall a paler and less dynamic performance when compared to the original Photographer recording.

im no philip glass expert, but i know what i like, and i like this one. Its a bit simple, repetitve, but thats the intention of glass here, to create an effect. It works. It breaks almost into an ambient quality as the notes fly and the main riff is played on different instruments. That much was an interesting effect, how the notes began to bleed together, but maybe still im longer for more of a movement in the piece. That said, i immediately ordered the whole piece after hearing this one, and its a great background bit to accompany you in reading or emailing or whatever daily chore. Kudos on the value, amazon!

I fell in love with Philip Glass music long ago when he did a soundtrack for Dracula. This album is very different in feel but I really enjoyed it.

Not what I expected. I was so upset that I even purchase this. Did not keep me interested. I tried to keep an open mind.

This has a spooky, repetitive feel to it, with a weird-sounding chorus accompanied by various instruments. Definitely a mood creator, but not a mood I particularly want to get into. Not one of my favorites, but being a Glass piece, it's not bad either.

Not very into philip glass, but this is a very good record. often i feel that contemporary classical music is too redundant or dissonant or blah blah blah, but this is very enjoyable.
