2 stars After the mediocre The Millennium Bell Mike Oldfield released another irrelevant album named Tres Lunas.

And this time he joined to the Chill Out mode back in the beginning of the new millennium with a rather boring and repetitive album with some glimpses of genius in songs like the precious Turtle Island, the pop hit To Be Free and maybe also No Man's Land.

The rest is a pretty forgettable collection of bland songs with some good playing by Oldfield which sometimes reminds to the excellent Songs from Distant Earth, but nothing more.

Best Tracks: No Man's Land (still Chill Out, but a good one), To Be Free (good vocal melodies) and Turtle Island (a very good tune which could have been included in the superior Guitars)

Conclusion: Tres Lunas is maybe not the worst Mike Oldfield album, but it's the most boring one. Repetitive, uninspired and bland collection of Chill Out songs only recommended for die-hard fans of our beloved British musician.

My rating: **
