4 stars In many ways this is in my opinion the pinnacle album from Mike OLFIED. "Ommadawn" marks the third major release from OLDFIELD and in my opinion conveys his deepest musical abilities ever. "Ommadawn" is really a combination of the best elements from both "Tubular Bells" and "Hergest Ridge". OLDFIELD brings a very relaxed subtle atmosphere to "Ommadawn" but delves deep into the human psyche here. Once again Mike plays most of the instruments, but unlike "Tubular Bells" has assistance. "Ommadawn" has some of the greatest vocal parts ever to come from OLDFIELD. "Ommadawm" covers lots of ground and moves from the dark depths to the light and flowery chants of children.
