Not exactly a crisis in music.

Crises, the eighth album by Mike Oldfield, maintains its characteristic sound of the 80s: a distance from the progressive rock albums in their 70's and an approach to pop music of that era.

This is far from his best work (a title I think it still belongs to Incantations), configured as an average album, and only that. But there are many highlights: the title track epic is a really cool 20 minutes which is mainly dominated by synthesizers and have the huge hit Moonlight Shadow (a very beautiful song sung by a beautiful singing voice). The rest is median (In High Places, Foreign Affair and Shadow on the Wall) or bad (Taurus 3).

3 stars.
