4 stars My fourth and last mike oldfield album i got so far is another one like very much, Mike compered to most other giants from the 70s seems to have hade a pretty good time in the 80s and continued to reales good albums. which is impressive seeing most others artist realising one shity album after the other throughout the 10 years most of em having a good comback in the 90s/00s. Anyway this is another good oldfield album and a pretty long one too. the opening epic Taurus II is a very good with lots of diffrent things goin on. What i like the most with the album however shame on me are the shorter popsongs Family man and Five miles out simply 2 perfectly crafted pop tunes that i yust love. Orabidoo is the second longest track on tha lbum and allso very good while Mount Teidi is a shorter intrumental. All in all a great oldfield album very modern sounding and on the same level as Ommadwan in my opinion, but not in the same class as tubublar bells. 4 stars
