4 stars Well, a guy that plays all the instruments of an album is sure interesting. Mike Olfield's first album is very well composed, well played, but has little flaws. The production is a little faulty, and sometimes, the piece is not precise. But it is so beautiful. It's the closest thing to classical music.

The first part is one of the most beautiful things ever. Only the introduction can make my day but after, here's Mike Oldfied showing his amazing talents on guitar. After, there are other beautiful parts until the grand finale comes in. Vivian Stanshall introduces the instruments with a repetitve theme in the background and the grand finale of the theme comes in.

. The second part is not as memorable. It is though the funny part. I laughed histeriatically at the Caveman part. And with the Sailor's Hornpipe dance at the end, it is the less serious part.

Tubular Bells is brilliant. I compare Mike Oldfield to "The Beethoven of Prog Music". He's very hard working. And this album proves it well.
