Editorial Reviews

Limited double colored vinyl LP pressing. 2012 remix project from the Avant-Garde composer. The idea for Rework came together during a conversation between Philip and his friend and new collaborator Beck. The pair recruited producer Hector Castillo to help assemble a collection of remixes of Glass' works by a list of critically acclaimed artists including Beck himself, Tyondai Braxton, Amon Tobin, Cornelius, Dan Deacon, Johann Johannsson, Nosaj Thing, Memory Tapes, Silver Alert, Pantha Du Prince, My Great Ghost and Peter Broderick.

Because this recording deserves all 5 of the freaking stars!!!

A couple of listens start to resolve it so that you can really see the collaborator's input and style.

I think the remixes work well and would recommend it for anyone interested in ambient music.

If you like Philip Glass' music and are looking for new interpretations of his music, this CD is worth checking out. Unlike some other remixes out there, I think Beck et al have managed to keep the core elements of Glass' music while adding their artistic takes. I think the remixes work well and would recommend it for anyone interested in ambient music.

It is easy to see why Beck, the figure behind this reworking of some of Philip Glass' work, is both critically and popularly acclaimed. His own long piece (more than 20 minutes) is witty, appropriate, moving, creative, and sometimes surprising. It genuinely adds something new to Glass' already considerable achievement. Contrast that with the incoherent efforts of the other would-be's whom some ill-advised person (I hope without optimism it wasn't Beck) has invited to fill out the set, and one can see that different is not enough. Only Cornelius' effort is listenable, and that is largely a set of variations on an extremely well-known Glass work. Let the others do their own thing for people who appreciate them. They have no place here.

This is a nice collection of some of Glass' pieces remixed in a more modern style; there are a lot of electronics. The most prominent piece is the one by Beck, who provides not a singular remix, but a mini-compendium of different Glass pieces that are blended together masterfully.

I would have preferred a more diverse selection of pieces from Glass' library, it (the pieces) can get a bit repetitive, however this is a great purchase for fans of Glass, minimalist, and electronic music.

Takes what's really cool about PG and sets it all aside in favor of some thumpety-thump so-what reimaginings. So if you're a PG fan you'll likely be disappointed because it isn't very PG-y, if you are fan of the other artists you'll likely be disappointed because they're not really doing what they do best... I kind of half expected that would be the case when I bought it, but I bought it all the same because what the heck, sometimes stuff like this really surprises you. Alas, not this time.

Phil Glass makes quite powerful music and this is vibrant cut through his work.I gave it as present for Christmas to several friends and several came back to me saying how much they enjoyed it.

Well that was fun. Much more interesting than I would have imagined. A couple of listens start to resolve it so that you can really see the collaborator's input and style.
