OGTL
3 stars Tubular Bells 2003 is a re-recording of 1973's Tubular Bells, released just after the binding 30 year contract had ended. Oldfield started this project in effort to make a polished version of the original,losing all of the out of tune instruments, buzzing guitar, and generally greatly improving the fidelity.

As such, much of the charm from the original is lost. There's something about listening to the niave Mike in the original version, giving it his all, raw production included, that makes it such a magical and mystical experience. Here that is all lost.

Reserved for fans that are farmiliar with the rest of the discography, or those Tubular Bell nuts. Get the original first!
