4 stars A completely different record from Tubular Bells...liner notes on Ommadawn album says that with Ommadawn, Mike began doing World Music...I dunno, because I feel this album as the first part of Ommadawn...Its a very relaxed and well crafted record...The difference between Hergest and Ommadawn is that the last has more variation of music...This one has folky influences and a very romantic feeling...(though that noodling sound in the second part from 12:00)...It's considered a classic for some people, for me tis a good one, but its not as good as its predecessor...
