2 stars Decline begins

Yes, decline begins, but no, this is not compilation album instead of the name - Platinum. I think this name doesn't suits good for this album, except the first song Airborne - the best and the sole significant track on the album. The second song - Platinum, is first Mike Oldfield's commercial single and last reasonable on the album. After that it is followed by mediocre song after mediocre song. This album is the first touch of MO with pop, disco and so on. His attempts are fairly not the best examples of these genres. Except all these negative thoughts, there is worse - From this album on, most albums consist of very bad reconstructed old ideas of Mike. It means making money without fair labour! The biggest example of that is Punkadiddle. Airborne and Platinum doesn't help the album of passing the 2,5 stars verge!
