5 stars Return to Ommadawn is truly a magnificent return for Mike Oldfield. I hesitate to call it a return to form, per-say, as he has repeatedly demonstrated over the course of his career that his focus is on more than just progressive rock, but it really is a great album harkening back to his work from the 70s.

As for the actual music itself, it's incredible! I might even like this album more than the original Ommadawn album. All the interplay between the instruments is just magnificent. Return to Ommadawn has musical flow of such a caliber that very few albums are capable of reaching. It really is an incredible journey from start to finish. It's hard to explain the album, as it speaks so well for itself; all I can really say is go listen to it! 5 stars, without a doubt.
