3 stars A friend who works at a radio station gave me a promotional copy of this in 89. I don't know that I would have ever purchased it full price.... by then CDs were listing for $18+. I only knew Oldfield as "the exorcist guy" and I had bought a CD4 copy of Hergest Ridge simply for the quad..... actually, it was terribly produced and VERY noisy in quad.

The first thing that impressed me were the vocals on Holy and Innocent. I'm not sure what "sound" MO was trying to obtain. Going from "the exorcist guy" to disco was a leap but that's what this one does. Nice production and very clean sound.

If you can find this one used or in a bargain bin, buy it.
