2 stars Continuing decline with synths.

What a pity for such a musician like Mike Oldfield! QE2 is something like a soup of different sounds being introduced by Mike Oldfield. Unsuitable mixture of genres and especially ideas and instruments. The music sounds very... (I would say) meatless. The musicianship almost lacks here. The songwriting is subordinated to the past albums of MO and draws it's sensation from these past ideas. There isn't any intensity of the sound. All songs aren't memorable, except the first one - Taurus 1. The folk influence have transformed into amateur new wave music. I'm trully surprised with this high rating of the album. Obviously, there are enough people to like it. For me it's just an album in my collection! 2 stars.
