2 stars Well, this is the kind of thing that makes me think about diversity. My imrpesions on Tubullar Bells II are on the same trail of my impressions about the new "Star Wars" movies. Meaning that Tubullar Bells II riuns every achievment of the first album. As the album goes, you can hear some poor copies of the first melodies, now riuned forever because exactly that "Light touch" mentioned above. Comercial?... I would say "Desperate". The lack of renovation on Mike Oldfield's music (during the 80's he really tried) has been consistent on every instrumental album from this werid Artist, who sometimes has the ability to create very funny "light" pieces, like the first track on QE2 (wich is very clever). Inspiratioin dies, I guess. Anyway, The late "Millenium Bell" was the actual funeral for the original version, wich will always amaze me.
