 Glennies favorite pieces May 15, 2012 By Gerald H. (Cobble Hill, BC) See All My Reviews "I should have checked the track titles out thoroughly before I purchased. My attraction to her music is when she plays Xylophone accompanyment to the classics (themselves great hits). These I hear on the radio (like KING FM Seattle). Her greatest mistake (or perhaps EMI's) was to include all the funky pieces she plays with 'Bjork' whose cat-strangled voice I assume we are hearing. There are too many of these tracks which are little more than experimental and personal jamming sessions with wierd percussion instruments some of which sound as if they were specially made for her. Occasionally we hear some of the pieces that I bought the discs for, but there are far too few. I only play the second disc now which has all of 5 out of 15 tracks that I really like. I suppose that disc is worth about the $9.99 I paid for the two disc set. I checked again the other discs of Glennie's and concluded that I wasn't going to buy any more, until some company puts all her really good music on one disc instead of jumbling every genre together in a disturbing hodge podge as EMI has done. I think 3 stars is overly generous." Report Abuse
