    Glow is that rarest of beasts: a dance album that is equally as good on the dancefloor as it is at home.

    It's an eccentric, all-consuming blizzard. GI Jane is Jackson's take on pro-pop, Vista on west coast disco and Memory on classic 60s songwriting, all bathed in a wash of glitch.

    [A] belated, frazzled, intense and sometimes overwhelming follow-up album delivers on his promise.

    Compared to Fourgeaud’s 2005 debut, Smash, there’s a new clarity within the arrangements. Clarity that allows the album’s inspirations to excessively bleed through a disorienting IDM facade.

    Listening in one session is like wolfing a hurried seven-course meal with post-dinner coffee and is roughly as messy. [Sep 2013, p.65]

    Glow never feels as whimsical or demented as Bruce Haack, and while this stuff may have seemed amusingly retro in 1998 or so, in 2013 Glow feels like especially well-trodden territory.

    They feel like the pieces that stuck to the wall when he threw everything at it.
