    "Mallet Quartet" and "Dance Patterns" feel inconsequential on their own and even more so when sharing CD space with WTC 9/11. But that's the way it goes with these extended works. A weak link doesn't always equal a weak release, but it still weakens it all the same.

    It is a difficult piece to listen to on many levels.

    Fortunately, his two other pieces on the record, Mallet Quartet, and Dance Patterns are nothing short of the flowery style that make Reich's music so rich. WTC 9/11, on the other hand, just sounds muddy.

    There's no getting away from the fact that WTC 9/11 simply doesn't have the structural cohesion or magnitude of Different Trains--a comparison which Reich fans will inevitably draw.
