4 stars "Pictures in the Dark"- Feature Anita Hergerland and others. Much in the style of "Moonlight Shadow". Definately has that Oldfield mid-career sound- poppy but yet haunting and beautiful. Features a good guitar solo midway through from Mike. Easily recognizable. I really enjoy this song! 5 stars "Legend"- Pleasent "medieval" Oldfield sound with a marching Celtic start and then an abrupt change into a more mellow guitar instrumental. Very nice. Could easily have become one of his longer suites, but this clocks in at only a little over 2 minutes. 4 stars "The Trap"- The weakest tune on this EP. A somewhat eerie short piece with a buildup (Mike likes to do that) but doesn't go far. 3 stars So, in total- 12 stars divided by 3 stars= 4 stars. A nice little collection.
