4 stars "Hergest ridge" has not the same mood as "Tubular bells". The good point here is that Mike Oldfield has done something different, but keeping the form of 2 lenghty compositions which was his trademark at the time. "Hergest Ridge" is more serious, very evocative of what Mike Oldfield wanted to describe (the landscapes in the area of his home). It is also slower. To the discredit of this work compared to "Tubular bells" I would objectively say that there are some repetitive moments that make it loose one star. Apart from that, it equals the quality of its predecessor. Take the time to listen to it !
