I was surprised at how well these songs are transfered to the world of classical music. glass takes all sorts of liberties with the bowie/eno pieces, but stays within the framework of the original song, so that anyone who is familiar with the original version can instantly recognise it.

The mood of the songs swings often from sometimes very dark to very lighthearted...every song is extremely beautiful and well done. Its a very pleasing listen, for anyone interested in either bowie/eno, or classical music.

: combine musical motifs with sound patterns that often repeat in gradual variations. The themes are frequently from unique musical or visual sources- in this case the largely experimental rock album "Heroes" - within the context of classical instrumentation and arrangement.
