3 stars "Tubular Bells" is the album that started everything! There are tons of instruments well played. The synthesizers are omnipresent. Lots of percussions, particularly "Bells", female background vocals, different guitar sounds... You have the Popeye music and the Exorcist movie too. Sometimes serious, sometimes funny, the pieces are very long and the listener has many beautiful little things to discover. On the original LP, the sound is sometimes bad, actually there is a bit where the bass background is too strong. Try the remastered version.
