Exposed is an amazing live record, that truly captures Mike Oldfield's talent, not only as a performer, but as an arranger, writer, and bandleader. The album begins with a nice run through Incantations (a little less than 50 minutes worth), which is a nice performance, and features some sparkling orchestral movements, and some beautiful guitar work from Mike. However, the highlight of this album is undoubtedly the live display of Mike's masterpiece, Tubular Bells. Being as the original was close to perfection, it would've been easy (and indeed, expected and perhaps satient) for him to lead his band up there on stage and perform the piece by the numbers, with little improvisation or change from the album. However, this is not what happens. The best part from the original are left without being raped, to be sure, (the only thing you could really complain about missing is the novel instrument introducing narraration), but there are many new twists and turns that a fan of the original will notice and appreciate. TB Part 1 is extended with a little jam at the end, and one of the nicest enchancements to the piece is the addition of a drummer (the album featuring only some light percussion.) This makes the piece more upbeat for the live setting, and also adds a nice punch to the midsection of TB Part I. The string and horn sections are nice additions, as well. However, TB Part II (which I never liked nearly as much as Part I, anyway) is considerably abbreviated, with the entire "Piltdown Man" section missing, which I cannot really complain about. A nice jam at the end more than makes up for it. Following the masterpiece is a nice, pleasurable run through Guilty. Highly reccommended for the Oldfield fan.
