Pick your favorite Mike Oldfield composition among the ones of 10+ minutes duration. I'll go with Hergest Ridge, Pt. 2.

My introduction to Mike Oldfield was Wind Chimes, and it's still my favorite song by him.

Completely agreed and then some.
 
Likewise, I can not say enough about all these.
 
Probably because I like weird stuff, and fun stuff, I did vote for Amarok. But that list is down right almost impossible! 
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

Features some great drumming from Simon Phillips who also co-produced it. Maybe the 'heaviest' track Mike Oldfield ever recorded?
