4 stars This album shows the Mike Oldfield's capacity to make a completely different thing after the great success of Tubular Bells. If Tubular Bells has a contaminated sound, paranoic passages, with the smell of the city... Hergest Ridge it's just the opposite: calm, the smell of the fresh grass, and a slowly ascent to a mount that it's the place where the feelings of Mike Oldfield nest.

I don't give this album 5 stars because it's a little repetitive sometimes, like the Electrical Storm passage. But it's only my opinion, other people don't think so. Because of that, I recomend the listening to anyone who likes good music. You will know a world of true magic, peace...and fury sometimes!
