Don't ask me why...it just appeals to all of my musical sensibilities!

In my very humble opinion this is one of the first Glass works that creates a genuinely engaging musical experience in the minimalist style (ie: extended sequences of repetition for which he's known--and sometimes reviled--are not to be found here).

Instead, Glass fans will adore the variety of rhythmic, harmonic, and melodic material, and it's unlike anything else he's done.

While there are clearly moments when it's doing it's duty as a sound track, the overarching theme is one of primal, unadorned noise-making, only orchestrated.

Anime Mundi is a triumph both experimentally and cathartically. Lacking the usual fugue repetitions of his earlier work, Anime Mundi coaxes the listener to the edge of their seat. I found myself transported to an aural theme park. A feat worthy of John Williams or James Horner. The music puts me in a PBS state of mind in a good way. I originally Purchased the album for "The Beginning". The selection is still my favorite track. I was delighted to find the high adventure did not end with "The Beginning". Listen to the samples where available and if your still on the fence I hope you read this review.

This is very fine music, in Glass's style of course , but very different from Koyaniskatsi and other pieces . It's a pleasure to listen to it . After saying that , what more can I say ?
