4 stars Music for the computer game with the same name, but I don't mind that, for most of us this is an album. This contains laid-back tunes which makes really good relaxing or ambient music. In contrast to some other late M.O-albums this one doesn't go into Ibiza-90's-disco- rhythms. It's mature and in line with it's time. If I should point out the nearest reference in the Oldfield catalogue it has to be "Songs of Distant Earth" (1994), but without the "Enigma sound-alike-singing". "Tr3s Lunas" has similar big/airy sound, although less "new-age". This one is the better of the two, and I try to figure out why it's so underrated. I don't know. To me "Tr3s Lunas" was a big and positive experience, despite it's soft and unpretentious style. 4,5 stars!
