Could i just ask people like the poor reviewer below me to get their facts right before going to print.
The Hergest Ridge album came out very soon after Tubular Bells so how could it sound like Ommadawn ?
Again how could Mike "plagarise Ommadawn" if he hadn,t even recorded it yet ?
I just wish people, who like to express their opinions on Amazon, would actually bother to read up a records history first.It is not helpful to others when deciding to buy the album but it just makes one seem foolish - sorry if this seems harsh but i have noticed a recent increase in both online and printed "journalist" reviews (especially Classic Rock ) to get facts completely wrong.
i know this is only a minor point in the whole history of the Cosmos but you do need to realise that Hergest Ridge was the follow-up to T.B. and that Ommadawn then came 3rd.
By the way H.R. is somewhat similar to T.B. but has a charm all of its own ,of course Ommadawn then goes onto sound like a natural progression to H.R.- surprise,surprise - thats the way an artist should develop and here Mike does just that. The themes are quite repetitive but thats Mikes style and personally i find the music to be very pleasant and calming - new age before new age had a name ?
