3 stars One of the stronger Oldfield albums from the 80's, again with a main epic domenating the album. The title track ranks among Oldfield's better epics and features an amazing climax at the end, while the rest of the piece centers mostly around the theme of different crises happening. It's a tense and melodic journey. The rest of the pieces are far more mainstream but melodic at the same time, including the far overplayed "Moonlight Shadow" which have more or less plagued radio listeners around the world for decades already. The rest of the pieces are even with the mandolin rocker "Taurus III" being a standout, and a notable guest vocal by Jon Anderson of Yes on "In High Places".

Very good album that have followed me since I was a kid. The title track is still outstanding to me!
