2 stars I think Oldfield did some great music i the eighties. I'm thinking of tracks like "Crises" and, from this album, "The Wind Chimes..", in other words the instrumental creations that has been his trademark. However, the pop songs and the soft rock ballads from this period have been slaughtered by time. I try to see the qualities in these but I fail. I bought the album "Islands" when it came out in 1987 and during the years I almost only played side 1 ("The Wind Chimes pt.1&2). The second side (pop-side) collects dust. The guest appearence from Bonnie Tyler will probably not get any prog-fans excited. This has to be a "fans-only" cd.
