4 stars Very brave, especially after Incantations. This guy was so confident he even put some charleston swing into it. Excellent spin on all genres at that time, Oldfield produced a masterpiece which I highly recommend to play as loud as possible. Why? Merely to justify it's cocky brilliance at kncking all that was stereotyped at the time. 1979 was a difficult year to stay with the game and Oldfield transgressed into realms that showed his level of genius with contined simplicity. I wish more periods were graced with these wonderful challenges. Platinum was and still is true platinum.
