This is my introduction to the world of Oldfield, and I am not impressed. It probably wasn't the best place to start, but I thought it would give a good overview of his material. What are tracks ten and eleven about!? This is nothing but electronic pop music. The orchestral edit is slightly boring and the exposed edit is very bland and uneventful.

The highlights are 'The Sentinel' and 'The Bell' from Tubular Bells II and the original edit which is track one. This seems to me as a poor selection. Perhaps 'Ommadawn' will better my current opinion of Mikes work.
