Another masterpiece by a brilliant artist! by Jeff on 12/1/11

Michael W. Smith has outdone himself once again with GLORY. This album is full of moving pieces that will inspire the most discerning of music aficionados. Smitty exposes his very soul through each piece. No one can tickle the ivories as beautifully as he can and together with a phenomenal orchestra you will close your eyes and think you are in one of the world's great concert halls! It is one you not only need to buy for yourself but will make a great gift for those you love! If you are a long-time Michael W. fan, this is yet another reminder of the amazing God-inspired talent of this artist. If you've never listened to his music before, I guarantee not only will you listen to this over and over but you'll be drawn to purchase more of his deep body of work!

Wonderful Album, HIGHLY RECOMMEND! by DaveBfromIL on 11/21/11

Wonderfully large, cinematic, epic instrumental album.

Whether a long time MWS fan, or a newcomer, you'll surely enjoy this album!

It simply just doesn't get any better than Michael's piano backed up with a symphony orchestra! Much of what one hears on this album, one would expect to hear at the local symphony orchestra, or as a film score, or even at a Disney park. IT IS REALLY THAT GOOD!

GLORY is the same vein as FREEDOM showcases patriotism. Yet this project does so much more: it gives me a sense of comfort.

While I love Michael's genuine and bold statments of faith in God in his more traditional Smitty projects with lyrics, this instrumental project touches the soul without words, with no less effect.

The songs are aptly titled. Close your eyes while you listen to the album, and you'll know their titles without even reading the CD jacket. From the John Williams influence of the opening "Glory Overture", to the visuals of Arlington Cemetary with "Heros"; from the mysterious and suspenseful "Glory Battle" to the feeling of ballet in "Whitacker's Wonder"; from the humble, consoling, and soothing of "Forver", "Giving", and "Joy Follow Sorrows" to the majestic tribute of "Tribute / Agnus Dei".

In what seems to be a newer trend, Michael captivates with the entire album, while saving the absolute best track for last. "TRIBUTE / AGNUS DEI" is by far my favorite track. PLAY IT LOUD!

I just can't stop listening to GLORY! It will be my MP3 player's new favorite for a LONG time!

ONE OF HIS BEST PROJECTS EVER!!! by Sharon on 11/21/11

Wow! Michael has outdone himself on this instrumental album. Absolutely beautiful. Would make excellent Christmas gifts for lovers of all types of music. Need music to play in the background for your holiday dinner? Look no further than this project "Glory"! Need music to play in the background for home prayer groups? This is the CD!

Brilliant!! by GoldLeaf on 11/21/11

As you listen to this album, prepare to be fully captivated. Each piece will paint vivid pictures onto the canvas of your imagination, and will stir up emotions that will make you feel like you're living the music you hear. Each melody has its story. Each one different, yet so beautiful.. so deep. I must of listened to this album a hundred times over. I guarantee you will, too! Brilliant work, Michael W. Smith!

Excellent!! by Melinda J. on 11/18/11

I am very fond of his first instrumental project, "Freedom," so I was naturally intrigued by his latest project. Michael is a very talented song writer and it show the best in these projects. "Glory" is incredible and takes you on a full of range of emotions. Amazing!! Thank you!

Exceptional! by Splash on 11/18/11

Michael W. Smith has outdone himself..again! The music of Glory is powerful and moving. Michael's second venture into an instrumental album does not lack a thing. I love it and would recommend it to anyone!
