1971
4 stars Since "Amarok" (1990), this is the most inspiring and unique Oldfield album. It has a theme that feels natural and crystal clear. I sense a slight resemblance to "Hergest Ridge" in its character. The new-age sound from "The Songs of Distant Earth" (and less apparent on "Voyager") is gone and replaced by a more down to earth sound. This sound, the mix of distorted, acoustic and clear guitar "riffs" is very typical and is impossible to mistake for any other artist, it's Mike Oldfield's trademark. In that way I find "Guitars" very pure and simple in its theme. However, it doesn't reach the level of "Amarok" and his astonishing 70's catalogue!
1971 | 4/5 |
