4 stars Being an absolute fan of Oldfield, I can say that I have heard all his work. In the 80's, he also edited works very appreciable. True, punctuated by the commerciality of the times, but with creative musical pearls that stand out. The genius of the artist is always unmistakable and unique.

The title track and principal of the album is fantastic. The perfect evolution after the nearly 10 years since Tubullar Bells, and through other classics of the past decade. An epic well developed and never tedious.

Orabidoo is a special piece, get an ethereal atmosphere and captivating. Sublime!

The short songs are acceptable, given the zeitgeist. Only that threaten the homogeneity of the work. Without them the album would be a masterpiece of 38 minutes.
