4 stars Sorry guys but this is not rubbish. Sure it is a clone of Tubular Bells but what I find most refreshing about TB2 is the new sounds brought out in various places on the album and in parts let's face it, is totally different to the original Tubular Bells. The production is excellent. I urge those who find the album below par to have a rethink and listen to ' Weightless', ' Sentinel', ' The great plain' and the glorious ' tatoo' again. TB2 is excellent and he had not exploited the original in a bad way..... yet. Even the concept of a second album excluding the marketing hype was pretty novel. He made an absolute fortune out of this album and you can see why.
