Yeah, or pick your Jean-Luc Ponty piece. But seems mostly intended as music meant to make love to.

Do yourself a favor and don't ever listen to Philip Glass.  Hahaha

I usually like Einaudi but this just goes nowhere

His music is much like Vanilla to me. Just a little goes along way, but without it, life wouldn't taste as good. Beautiful piece. 
 
Yes, beautiful, and all I've heard from them.  Whatever piano was minor in that piece, and not worth the spiral of keys posted. Yeah, it looks kinda cool for a minute, but that song was mainly about strings.

Music can be like poetry. It doesn't always have to be logical in a conventional sense. It's all about how it makes you feel. Think of the ocean beach. Breakers are all the same, yet each has a character of its own.

Couldn't agree more.  I also have a beef with how much Bill plays it.  I feel like I hear it every time I have RP on - which is darn near daily.  It's one of the few songs that will make me get up and switch over to KEXP or KUTX or Radio 6 or FIP.

 

The song data shows that it has been played twice in last 30 days, which is ridiculous given how many songs there are in the world.  If forced to guess, it feels like it has been played twice in the last 30 min.  I'd be happy with twice in 30 years....

 

Overall, though, Thanks Bill for doing what you do.

I realize my earlier comment was terse and harsh but I wrote it while the music was playing and, like another reviewer, I found the piece grating; physically uncomfortable.

It has nothing to do with the "pleasant" quality - I can see how people would find it soothing as background music.  It demands nothing; it's easy.  But it's those very qualities that are so disturbing.

Whatever the composer had to say comes out in the first 30 seconds after which we're offered constant repetition broken only by additional instruments doubling down on the theme.  It lacks substance beyond minor amusement.  

Like the fragment of a song played in a movie, sometimes the 30 seconds you get to hear are perfect in that moment and nothing else.
 
I get what you mean. Einaudi's initial statement, albeit very pretty, gets repeated without much variation. It is kind of like watching Saturday Night Live sketches where you get the gag almost immediately  but they keep riffing, without exploring any further, until I get angry and insulted (well, at least I do).

One might argue that this piece is a similar approach to a Bach fugue. However, Bach would put the tune through fascinating mathematical, melodic, and emotional transformations which made it divine.

IMHO, of course.
If you love this music, try searching "Watchtower of Turkey" in youtube, just an advice.

Ludovico's music could be called Classical Trance Music.   It's more meditative than stimulative. 
I DO enjoy this guy's music, but this is NOT his best

Down from 8 to 6
Italian clone of Nyman. Not only in the music, but even in the title. Although, it is pleasant.

I think the ratings tell the story for this piece very well!  I gave it a solid "8" because I very much enjoy orchestral instrumentals - always have.  Not for rockin' a party, but when I want to trip through "Danville" for a few minutes.
Mind numbing tripe.  False drama based on volume.  Navel gazing composer.
Wonderful

 Musak with no beginning or end just a load of tedious middle. Dreadful

beautiful segue.

i did not know that they even did a mini series on doctor zhivago. i'll check it out just on the merits of the soundtrack. hope it's as good as the original. not really my thing, but it was my dad's favourite over frank and that's saying something. 

speaking of frank. bill, wouldn't hurt.

I can understand why people like it, but for me it's worse than fingernails on the blackboard. Hard to put my finger on why. I like some repetitive music, even EDM in small doses. And yet this drives me crazy with its monotony and portentousness. All surface and no substance. 
 
I don't particularly enjoy this guy's music but it's odd that you're getting a "fingernails-on-a-blackboard" reaction to it.  It's innocuous background music; there's nothing shrill or jarring about it like that (tired) "blackboard" clich√© usually implies.  I'm not sure if it's his intention for his music to have any deep "substance" -  it's meant to be "ambient" sound, meant for relaxation or meditation (I imagine).  The repetition or monotony is there by design, criticizing it is like criticizing seascape paintings for depicting too much water.  Obviously, everyone responds differently to different music. Hearing Jimmy Buffett usually gives me an adverse reaction, but other folks love his music.
Amazing piece of music. Like classical progressive trance. How can you call this boring?
 7 -> 8 - Most Excellent
I may have made a similar comment about Einaudi's music on another song, but this track, and at least one other, reminds me of the movie soundtrack composer Michael Nyman, who among movies, scored several for UK director Peter Greenaway. This track reminds me somewhat of Nyman's masterful score for The Draughtsman's Contract. Baroque tropes in a New Age style. 
Tedious.
To me a strong 7 - Quite Likeable

Earns an enthusiastic '4' for four chords.
Knew who it was before i looked since it sounds like all his other stuff. This year’s muzak.
left over from The Leftovers?
A bit of a loop. Repetitive but beautiful but not cold rainy gloomy day music.  
Repetitive. More music in 10s of Radiohead.
