Album Notes
GLENN CARDIER: The Essential Collection (2002-2012)
In ten prolific years, the reclusive Cardier bounced back from his self-imposed exile to produce a string of critically acclaimed CDs Rattle The Cage, House Of Mirrors, Exiles From Eden, Live At Lizottes and Stranger Than Fiction.

'Touring with Spike Milligan and opening for the likes of Harry Chapin, Frank Zappa, Sherbet, Cheech & Chong and Manfred Mann's Earth Band is not the CV of your average musician, but then Glenn Cardier is not your average troubadour.
Without any doubt the most articulate and creatively insightful singer-songwriter in contemporary Australian music, Cardier has always done things on his own terms. He gave it his best shot throughout the '70s, completely hung up his six-string for over twenty-five years before a 'comeback' in 2002 that has thus far spawned four outstanding albums...' (Trevor Leeden, Rhythms Magazine 2013)

Rattle The Cage (2002) '...his trademark combination of incisive observation and skewed wit is still intact here, wrapped in a blues-infused rock that shows off his seasoned voice. The years have made his voice gruffer and occasionally craggier but he hasn't lost his knack of juggling a genuinely sensitive moment with one that raises a wry smile…'

House Of Mirrors (2004) '...a national treasure...' (Glenn A Baker, rock historian)

'...Cardier is our finest contemporary singer-songwriter BAR NONE...' (Keith Glass, Rhythms)

Exiles From Eden (2008) ' ...Cardier can get gruff with the blues but hasn't lost his silken acoustic touch. Four Stars!' (Weekend Australian)

Live At Lizottes(2009) '...some of the finest songwriting this country has produced' (Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald)

Stranger Than Fiction (2012) ’…There’s no-one else on the Australian music scene quite like Glenn Cardier; from the finely chiselled storylines, and the razor sharp observations to the off- kilter delivery of his cryptic vignettes, he is a genuine one-off, a maverick, and you wouldn't want it any other way.' (Rhythms)
