3 stars If this only had Crisis, Moonlight Shadow, and Taurus on it, it would be a 5 star album. Especially the title track is Oldfield at his best. Evidently his first attempt at singing on a released recording. It's a twenty minute prog masterpiece. The driving force of this song is the pounding drums of Simon Phillips. He is amazing! Moonlight Shadow is as catchy a pop song as MO has ever written. And Taurus is really his best of many attempts at Spanish guitar. Regretably, the other songs are throw-away numbers. Songs that should have remained on the shelf, only to appear on "rarities & outtakes" records. Becuase of this, it's 3.5 stars
