Anyone compared Aguirre and Superior Viaduct Reissues? Wich one is better to get when both are avillable at the same price?

Hardcore minimalism from one of the masters. Intense and repetitive, after a while the glacial organs will drill into your very soul. Not to be confused with later Reich offerings (post 1978) which are much lusher and melodic. This is the pure, undistilled and extremely fierce minimalism which is sure to alienate and infuriate many lightweight and fairweather listeners.
A good companion to this (and also on Shandar) is the Philip Glass album 'Solo Music'. Another extremely intense and sparse recording (Glass also appears on Four Organs).
