  • Summary: This EP-sized companion-piece to One Bedroom contains three versions of tracks from that recent album (remixed by Stereolab, Carl Craig and Broadcast) as well as four new songs.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. Frankly, we think this is better than One Bedroom. [Jun 2003, p.98]
  2. On Glass, the Sea and Cake make music that’s as beguiling as ever, while displaying an odd sense of humor and implying that their best collection of sounds may still lie ahead.
  3. [The songs] are just similar enough to blend together in a close listen, but they also work as a diverse soundtrack behind whatever it is you're doing.
  4. 60
    An ecclectic addendum. [Jun 2003, p.113]
  5. There's something uncomfortably sterile about The Sea and Cake's new, seven-song Glass EP that precludes it from functioning emotionally.

    I love this band! However, this album feels like a collection of odds and ends. Remixes can be great if they give the track new life or aI love this band! However, this album feels like a collection of odds and ends. Remixes can be great if they give the track new life or a fresh spin but, in this case, I'd rather hear the originals. Expand
