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

I now have his entire discography. I will have to explore the options here and get back to this and not be rash.

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!

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

If Platinum had been listed I would have voted for it too. However, I went for Taurus II. As much as like all the others listed, this is a sentimental favourite.
