2 stars A guitar album.

The album is not particular bad, but even a guitar lover like me wants a little more variety than constant guitarwork. This album represents a departure from his quest with the bells and also highlights Oldfield's craftsmanship with the instrument.

As can be guessed, there's lots of layering here, and a bit too much repetition. The melodies can be captivating, but at times they are overdrawn. There are enough stylistic elements, from hard rockers to blues to jazz, but the riffs are repeated too much.

I can really only recommend this to guitar lovers. Fans of Mike will also probably enjoy it, but in truth you must love the instrument in question, or this album probably won't be for you.
