CD Review of THE GENE GENERATION by Daniel Schweiger
"ROBOTECH composer Scott Glasgow gets his futuristic Asian action groove on again, this time in the service of leather-clad DNA assassin Bai Ling. With a formidable orchestra, eerie voices and achingly beautiful walls of Oriental mysterioso music, GENE's epic approach could befit THE LAST EMPEROR as much as THE MATRIX. It’s exactly the kind of atmospheric, 'think big' approach that elevates the DV confines of productions like GENE GENERATION, more than proving that Glasgow has the stuff to take on widescreen dystopias of any ethnicity."
CD Review of THE GENE GENERATION by Randall Larson
" The film is greatly aided by an excellent musical score by Scott Glasgow (Toxic, Bone Dry), recently released on cd from Varese Sarabande, which provides a great sense of size and scope and expansiveness through massive chords of sampled orchestra and choir, offset with ethnic instruments and vocals (provided by Melissa R. Kaplan, who Glasgow worked with previously on Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles) which are associated with Bai Ling’s character. The vocalisms and the fusion of various ethnic instruments give The Gene Generation a fluid and textural depth that really makes it fit the cultural fusion of the future society envisioned by Teo in the film."
"Glasgow's music really enlivens the futuristic environment of The Gene Generation, providing both music that is functional in advancing the emotional drama of the piece, and that is at one with the sonic atmosphere in which the story is told; the music really becomes a character in the film, a definition of the place and the cultural distillation of the world in which the film occurs. On CD, it is eloquent, powerful, thickly and interestingly orchestrated, and fascinating to listen to."
DVD Review of THE GENE GENERATION by Peter Brown
" THE GENE GENERATION has got a great score with some masterful strokes and eloquent
music playing throughout, something that is forgotten often in direct-to-DVD films usually."
Movie Review of THE GENE GENERATION on Cinefantastique
" THE GENE GENERATION is greatly aided by an excellent musical score by Scott Glasgow (TOXIC, BONE DRY), which provides a great sense of size and scope and expansiveness through massive chords of sampled orchestra and choir, offset with ethnic instruments and vocals associated with Bai Ling’s character. The score also emphasizes the underlying intimacy and emotional attachment sought by the characters, especially the pathos embodied in Bai Ling's character, Michelle."
CD Review of BONE DRY by Michael Beek of Music From The Movies
"The 'Retribution Symphony' is of course a massive draw here and while it would be great to have had the entire score performed in that organic mould, the programmed score is itself brilliantly conceived, edgy and harrowing in places and exhibiting endless creativity from the composer. Bone Dry is great thriller writing, echoing the creative nuances of Goldsmith, the dark edginess of Goldenthal and the intensity of Herrmann.
CD Review of HACK by Daniel Schwewiger of Film Music Weekly
"And while it's only a bunch of film students running from a movie-crazed killer in Scott Glasgow's score for Hack, the composer uses the opportunity to pay tribute to such current, malefic maestros as Marco Beltrami and Danny Elfman, all with the kind of shrieking chords and playfully dark orchestrations that have filled such horror flicks as Scream and Psycho. But Glasgow's got the horror stones to pay tribute without doing a sound-a-like, showing he's got his own darkly thrilling voice that can evoke past chillers while remaining its sinister own."
"Ain't It Cool News" review of "Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles" movie
Review #1 (Darkwater):
"The music, simply put, is unbelievable. This score will make you keep your full attention, even when you're having trouble following the story or the animation isn't blowing you away. This music is definitely the movie's saving grace."
"A close listener to movie's score will hear influences from John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, and Hans Zimmer, just to name a few."
Review #2 (Slop Reilly):
"Scott Glasgow's score is beautiful. He was able to take the original theme music and make it both nostalgic and fresh all at the same time. Scott should be commended."
Anime Network News review of Robotech: TSC
"The score, by Scott Glasgow, is the sort of orchestral highlight almost required by space operas, and it adds real excitement to many of the space battle sequences."
Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles" movie review on USA voice
"Finally and most impressively is the music."
" Scott Glasgow does an exceptional job at taking the existing Robotech score and reimagining the music on a much grander scale."
" Performed by the Prague Philharmonic the music is on a par with the biggest of names in movie soundtracks like John Williams and Alan Silvestri."
CD Review of Chasing Ghosts on Tracksounds.com
"...in CHASING GHOSTS, there are those moments that appropriately descend into the range of morbid-nothingness; however, there are many of fiery intensity and subdued beauty scattered throughout the soundtrack."
"Chasing Ghosts" CD review on Sountrack.net
"The cleverness of the writing and the mastery of film composition on display here earn the score a solid four stars."
"Glasgow is another young composer to watch out for."
"The movie, Chasing Ghosts, may not be reaping in any awards for originality, but its score is a different beast."
"Its style could be classified as "Classical Industrialism": it is cerebral, cold, detached, and inventive, highly percussive and urban, with a driving Classical elegance behind it."
"Glasgow's achievement is not only in crafting little details in cues that could be mundane in other hands, but also in making full use of the soundscape."
"Chasing Ghosts" CD review on ScoreWars.com
"This dark music is one area where Glasgow excels; it is purposefully driven but full of sad overtones. Indeed, "sad" music seems to be another of his special talents, showcased in the string adagio of 'Lament' and the overwhelming, shimmering climax of 'Karis'."
"It could be said that Glasgow has a gift some modern composers are missing- the ability to underscore the emotion behind a scene and not just the action on-screen."
"If you enjoy dark and brooding yet well-structured and thought out music, get the album."
"Chasing Ghosts" CD review on Soundtrack Collector.com
"Scott Glasgow recently emerged as one of the most exciting new composers scoring films in Los Angeles."
"Glasgow has a strong personal voice and writes music that has a strong emotional quality.
"The 'Interrogation for Violin and Orchestra' piece featured on the Chasing Ghosts soundtrack is only one example of his rich and unique voice."
