5 stars By far MO's most adventerous and mind expanding album. Here he pulls out all the stops. A thrill a minute for (almost) exactly one hour. As usual Mike plays most of the instruments himself. And again, as usual, his guitar playing is the standout. I don't know how he gets the sound he does from his guitars, but it is so unusal, so refreshing, so Oldfield. Anyway, Oldfield's theme and hook line are awesome. There are actually a couple of repeaters, but the opening 5 mins and the last 5 mins are just brilliant. African choirs, Mr. Happy, Maggie Thatcher, they're all in there. Check it out. This is a materpiece
