5 stars A beautiful and innovative album by Oldfield. He speaks with his guitar in many of the passages. There's not a single moment which is not magnificent. The first part develops in a simple manner, still really progressive, with speed guitar solos in the middle section, and an intense African drum until the finale portion. The second part, my favorite, tends to be repetitive at first, but then explodes into one of the most exquisite guitar solos (the last one) that I have ever heard. ``On Horseback´´ is really nice as a closer. Recommended to everyone who likes Oldfield music, as well as world music. To everyone who loves music!!!
