4 stars not very orthodox simph prog, but an excellent album. May it be because of oldfield's creativity, due to his skills when playing specially the keyboards, or just because. This is an excellent album, all of it, but with some skippeable songs. I must state, though, that everyone should listen at least "Our father" and "quiksilver", and also "surfing" (one of the few songs that involve a vocalist's work). Not just for prog fans, but for anyone who might enjoy a quiet but cheerful cd, with the precise notes at the precise time, not more, not less. Excellent. To give a word of advice, everyone who is able to, give it a try, you'll like it.
