Default Steve Reich vs. Philip Glass

Uh-oh but ok who do you like better and why?

Or can they even be compared, if not why though?

i have a total of one album from each

i like Reich better, simply because it's more relaxing

the Glass i have is not minimalist instrumentals, but a pop album

Malaise is THE dominant human predilection.

This is a tough one.

I've heard a lot more of Glass, and he seems to have had the bigger impact IMO, but what I've heard of Reich I adore. Can't go wrong with Music for 18 Musicians

Why not add Terry Riley to this debate?
