4 stars Hergest ridge was the first album i heard from Mike Oldfield. I'll never forget! As a kid, with not much knowledge from music, i has almost taked to tears. I was surronded with magic! The beginning of the first part is a "crescendo" with a felling that i cannot tell with words. There are pieces of sinfonic geniality in that 20min song with an end that blows everyone. The choir is awsome. The part 2 remember Spain, blusy riffs and classical stuff. Is very difficult to talk about sounds, it's better hear them.

When i heard Tubular Bells (after Hergest ridge) i had to go down a little to understand it as a masterpiece. Hergest ridge as superiority in many ways.
