2 stars The big question with collections with Mike Oldfield is how to sum up the long tracks. On "The Complete Mike Oldfield" the excerpt-tracks are put on side three on the vinyl album. I think they end up as being in the shade of the hits "the vocal side" and the instrumentals on "the instrumental side". It works, but putting together collections with M.O. is always going to be hard. The big value on this compilation is side four "the live side", with wonderful versions of Platinum, Sheba, Mirage and Mount Teide. But I'm afraid that's not enough to make this compilation interesting today. The more recent collections makes slightly better summaries to Mike Oldfield.
