Okay, if you like Nyman merely for his rhythmically-driven instrumental works, whether they are soundtracks or classical works, then you might not like this album (though it does contain a new recording of Nyman's 1992 saxophone quartet "Songs for Tony"). But, if you like his style, as well as innovative lyrics, then you will definitely enjoy this collaboration. The music is typical Nyman, some of which will be recognizable to long-time fans, while McAlmont's lyrics are drawn from various news stories. The result is a brilliant, somewhat avant-garde, album that at moments is reminiscent of Philip Glass's "Songs from Liquid Days" Philip Glass - Songs from Liquid Days. It is worth a listen.

"But on the day The Times drops by, Britain's most famous egghead composer is applying his planet-sized brain to Susan Boyle's performance on the X Factor Christmas final. "I actually think Susan Boyle sang the bollocks off Elaine Paige," muses Nyman. "Elaine Paige was quite nervous, and certainly not as powerful."

Nyman's interest in Boyle was piqued by his current album, The Glare, a dazzling chamber-pop collaboration featuring lush, luxuriant, soulful vocals by David McAlmont. Each track is recycled from the composer's extensive back catalogue, but with new lyrics by McAlmont reflecting on contemporary events - including the title track, which weighs the emotional cost of Boyle's overnight fame."

I am a huge Michael Nyman fan, but for his great highs, he can have some pretty low lows. For me, this is one of the latter. The music is straight from his back catalog, which is fine, but the lyrics and vocals add nothing, only detract from the music. The lyrics, based on the news of day sound insipid and uninspired. They just take you out of any enjoyment you may have. David Mcalmont is a good singer, maybe if he was singing in a language I didn't know I would enjoy it more, but I doubt it. This may have been more effective with new compositions, but as it stands, it just ruins some of my favorite music.

If you are more a Nyman fan, save yourself some cash and just buy the Songs For Tony, a new instrumental track which is a steal for 17 minutes for $.99
