Music of Eric Whitacre?

Any opinions or guidance on the music of Eric Whitacre? I heard some of the Virtual Choir music, which I thought was very fascinating, but nothing else.
A couple of years ago there was a write-up in either Stereophile or The Absolute Sound that raved about his Cloudburst CD. I bought it and about 15 seconds into the CD I hit the "stop" button on my CDP (emphasis added that I didn't bother to hit the "next" button).
