I have high esteem for Part but don't "like" him: high quality music I don't often feel the need to hear.
The CD you bought has some of his best known works so you'll be able to adequately judge what you think of him based off that.

I will give it a spin but not holding out for high expectations.

Thanks and for other comments too. It was a "consensus" of sorts. :D

A little Pärt goes a long way for me. The only disc I periodically go back to is the ECM classic with Tabula rasa, Fratres &c.

Consensus? I am not sure if it is even legal around here and, if it is, it rarely happens.  ;)

Part has his share of enthusiasts around here. As for me, I prefer his early works, when he was more radical/modernist, before he became what he is known for today.
What are some of those radical works? I'm only familiar with Alina and Tabula Rasa and Fratres.
