5 stars To a fan of early Oldfield works, his last two decades (and a half) might appear as sadly boring, apart from some fantastic part-instrumental 20-minutes tracks in the 80īs (Wind Chimes, Crises, Taurus II). These tracks were surrounded by pop songs that most people would like to forget about today. "Amarok" is a lot different from any of his works from late 80's and further. It seems almost like an "oasis" in this late Oldfield catalogue. Previously the LP-format stopped him from doing this length of tracks (there is only one track on the album which is 60 min long), so on this album he could do what he does best: Fantastic and highly progressive loooong epics. "Amarok" is beautyful, surprising, and mysterious, all in one!
