High Lines is an album by American composer and violinist Michael Galasso recorded between 2002 and 2004 and released on the ECM label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Richard S. Ginell awarded the album 3½ stars stating "At times, the album resembles a Glass soundtrack, but Galasso is not as predictable as Glass, freely roaming around various world cultures for inspiration, varying his bowing techniques to suit the mood... It's hard to predict how these mostly slight compositions will stand up to repeated listening, but they are beautifully recorded in the best ECM fashion".[2]
