The Lost Chord
5 stars Score: 10/10 Masterpiece

Perfection. Here is an album I discovered fairly late in my musical journey, but by far one of the most important discoveries! Mike is a true genius, and this album proves this. The album is full of musical changes and some amazing highlights, especially Part 1 bringing some severe goosebumps at some certain moments. The melodies are all brilliant, and the construction is flawless. This album is for those interested in beautiful melody, changes in tempo and mood, and those looking for a nostalgic connection and building memories around such a powerful song. This album is bound to hit you hard if you have this interest, and it will be a strong memory for your entire life.

The best moments of this album are very profound and powerful. I cannot recommend this any more to fans of Anthony Phillips especially, or any fans in general of symphonic, melodic, peaceful and emotional prog. This music comes from the heart and soul of Mike Oldfield and if you appreciate it's greatness then you are certainly a very fortunate person! Beautiful, incredible masterpiece of progressive music, enjoy everyone, and bless Mike Oldfield for this!!

The Lost Chord | 5/5 |
