5 stars We've come a long way from Tubular Bells here.

Mike Oldfield has composed a long, VERY long, rock symphony here. You won't even notice it until you hit the 30 minute mark, but suddenly themes and ideas will come back to you again and again. Amazing. If you have the attention span to encompass sixty minutes of music, you will find this amazingly rewarding. This is truly a masterpiece. Five stars.

But don't bother listening to it if you can't devote an entire hour to it. This work REQUIRES your full attention for an hour. Fortunately, the quality of the music is so high that that is not an onerous request.
