4 stars I do not know what say.It is a very strange album, but at the same time very good.Certainly Mike Oldfield is a great musician, is best known for the quantity of instruments that play.In "Ommadawn" (one of the strangest titles I've seen), he is accompanied by several musicians, including his sister Sally, who is best known for her vocals on "Voyage of the Acolyte"by Steve Hackett.

The music is very exotic, full of influences: everywhere you hear the drums of Africa, besides the use of flamenco guitar, not to mention the beautiful chorus heard in this part 1.I personally prefer this to second part, perhaps because it is larger and more ecletic.At end of the second part, there is a little song, which is the only time where there is actual voice.

4 stars.Stranger,but good.
