3 stars Is this a cynical attempt to cash in again on what was Mike Oldfield's most successful album? Of course it is. Just look at the number of albums is Oldfield's catalog that refer back to that classic, and you will understand that Oldfield and his record label found nothing wrong with dipping into that well over and over.

And while there are a few songs that sound like they are trying desperately to capture the original album (for the most part, they do, and with great production), most of the album is original pieces. There are a few too many new agey songs for my tastes, but some songs are quite good. The best, to me are Dark Star, and Altered State.

And who can resist Hans Gruber (I know, most of you think of him as Snape) announcing the instruments in The Bell?
