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.

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.

Why did I choose 5 stars? Because this recording deserves all 5 of the freaking stars!!! These are some of the best Phillip Glass pieces I have heard in many years, re-worked and remixed by both heavyweight and lightweight artists. ALL of it shines!! It's an absolute joy to hear. I guess that makes me a "joy-boy." And I'm fine with that handle!

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.

From Philip Glass we can only expect the best.

It is what we get from him on these two CDs.

Amazing!

But if you can appreciate the eccentricities of modern composers, and recognize the distinction in having an avant garde crew from the current generation pay mad respect, pick this up!
