2 stars One thing Olfield can always be tagged with was his ability to be consistently inconsistent!! Hope that makes sense. Heaven's Open was his swansong with Virgin and seems to be a rushed affair. Side one with Oldfield on the vocals. The title track being the highlight and dare I say it very similar to a Talking Heads piece. Side 2 has a single song titled ' Music from the Balcony' and if you loved Amorok you will love this piece of music too. It is a real gem.Definitely an album for dedicated Oldfield fans only.
