5 stars This is the album that brought me into the Progressive Music world, back in 1996. It took another ten years before I actually realized there were other artists than Mike Oldfield in this genre, and believe me I've since done my best to catch up with everything I missed. But Ommadawn is clearly one of the most representative folk-rock albums ever. The introduction to Part 1 was actually ripped off by Shiro Sagisu for his excellent soundtrack to "Fushigi no umi no Nadia" (check out episode 16), and curiously, this is really the reason I fell in love with Oldfield's album immediately. It may be kind of "the tree that hides the forest", but to me, there's a good reason for that. It might just be the tallest tree of all.
