2 stars There has always been a Folk element to Mike Oldfield's music. Most of his more popular albums such as Ommadawn, Incantations, Q.E.2, etc. all have strong folky and Celtic influences. With Voyager, Oldfield goes further in this direction. Several of the numbers on this all instrumental album are traditional and only four are Oldfield originals.

There is nothing offensive or annoying about this album; it is mellow and quite relaxing music. The sonic quality is high and the musicianship too, but there is very little to catch a Prog fans interest. I can enjoy this album in its entirety when in the right mood, but it does not leave any lasting impression. Overall, this is too relaxing for my taste.

This is therefore an album I would recommend for Oldfield's fans only.
