A fusion of new age soft rock and multi-layeredness of classic rock production. Imagine James Taylor getting together with David Gilmore, or Crosby Stills and Nash arranged and produced by members of Genesis... or Jethro Tull. Oh, a bit of understated sensitivity alla George Harrison.
The phrase can also refer to our modern world, with steel and glass dominating our lives and lifestyles. Finally, Isle of Glass hints at ourselves as individual human beings--we are islands, both isolated and transparent in many ways.
This recording is considered a collection of songs. In this time of single mp3 downloads and streaming audio, this recording is meant to be listened to as a whole. I'm suggesting that you listen to this recording a few times as you might usually listen-as background music while you do other things. After a few listens, sit or lie down and relax, turn the lights down, turn the music up, close your eyes and LISTEN...
Most of all, enjoy! It is, after all, only art...
