2 stars OK,this is not prog! In fact its got more in common with the music played in Ibiza nightclubs with its ambience and dance orientated stylings.I find the 'up tempo' music of the second disc with to be the best,a good one to play after coming late back at night 'bladdered'! The first disc resembles some of the music on 'Songs of Distant Earth' but not as good.2 points for the first disc,3 points for the second disc which gives 2.5 points.As its not prog I deduct half a point.One for Oldfield devotees only I fear.
