4 stars Another very good album by Mike Oldfield, and one of his most famous too!

The tittle track it's pretty good, being the main melody a remake (because the 10th anniversary) of the most famous Tubular Bells melody, The Exorcist's one. Moonlight Shadow it's one of the most beautiful songs ever made, very very well known, although there's a lot of people who don't know it's Oldfield's... The guitar solo it's simply incredible!

In Hight Places has the collaboration of Jon Anderson, but it's not a great song, like Foreign Affair... But both Taurus III and Shadow on The Wall are remarkable songs, the last one with the collaboration of Family's Roger Chapman, who gives the song an extra quality...

Excellent album, with some mistakes, but it's definitely worth the listening!

The Crow | 4/5 |
