2 stars Not prog.

Commercial album done in exchange of creative freedom for later Ommadawn. Good (not very good) songs. Nice guitar work. Not very interesting for prog fan. Highly accessible.

Highlights: Adrian Belew / Oldfield duo solo on Far Country, brilliant vocals on Earth Moving, rockish See The Light.

Not recommended for beginners (as nothing common with Oldfield), for prog lovers (as not prog). For Oldfield fans only, and only for those who like pop-rock.
