Glass: Songs from Liquid Days

Top Customer Reviews
If you don't like Glass's musical compositions, you'll definitely hate "Songs from the Liquid Days." If you appreciate Glass, then this creation is definitely worth your time and money.
You have lyrics by Laurie Anderson, David Byrne, Paul Simon, and Suzanne Vega. The words and music are a perfect match. You have the vocal stylings of Bernard Fowler, the Roches, Linda Ronstadt, and Douglas Perry. A couple of those names I'm not familiar with except for this CD. Regardless, the talent and power is inescapable.
I'm by no means a religious person, but listening to this creation is as close to a religious experience I imagine I'll ever have.
It's haunting. It's moving.
In this musical Road Trip, you'll find plenty of the motifs and rapid-fire rhythms and arpeggios that are characteristically Glass, but you'll also discover some lyrical melodies which will haunt you. You may even find yourself wondering at the miracle of language while the poetry rattles around your head.
Put away the cognac for this one; fix yourself a Singapore Sling, and be prepared to freak out both your pop- and classical-loving music friends when you push "Play" on this disc.
