4 stars Apart from tubular bells this is probobly his best and most varied album, its almost world music, that makes you feel like your in a jungle or out on the african bush, very good but it allso got the old oldfield sound ofcourse with good melody and some guitar nodling, its no doubt the oldfield album with most variation which is good i cant realy say which part is the best i like em both yust the same. Its a perfect album to put on when you whana relax its very soft and dont require much consentration or atention yust like a good jazz album it actualy got strong jazz influences i think, good background music but it also works if you lisen closely too it. Well its simply a very enjoyeble album no mather what mood your in. the only problem i have with it is the litle abomination of a song that closes the album On a horse back simply horrible sound almost like some crapy christmas song or something if he hade removed it and added some 10min more muisc to the Ommadwn suits it whuld have been a 5 star album as it is now its still an excellent addition to any prog music collection. 4.5 stars.
