4 stars Mike Oldfield's Ommadawn is nearly as beautiful and Hergest Ridge, and almost as diverse as Tubular Bells. Some of the melodies are absolutely gorgeous, and the various atmospheres evolve smoothly. This a classic that is great for anyone new to Mike (after the aforementioned albums). This album also encompasses the first ever Mike Oldfield track with vocals. "On Horseback" is quite pretty, but a little cheasy. Really, this is a great album with very few faults - one of which would be it's unsatisfying length. Tubular Bells is well over 10 minutes longer than this album.
