5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Oldfield, 22 April 2013

This review is from: Guitars (Audio CD)
READ THE INSIDE COVER. ALL sounds on the album (drums sounds included) are produced from live guitar. Once i read that i listened again. Simply to have a mind to conceive such an idea is outstanding let alone to produce such an album. Whilst i would agree that he has better albums out there, to use ONLY guitars and come up with this is epic. As someone who grew up on Tubular Bells, this is one for the collection. Oh i forgot to say, Well engineered and reproduces well with good dynamics. Glad i paid good money. Well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quality product made in Britain., 10 Jan 2013

I bought this to connect a Sony TV to a Krell amplifier as i do not have a product that accepts HDMI or optical. The sound quality is excellent. The product is a fine quality product. Worth spending good money on a good product.

North Star track previously unreleased, what is he doing. If he has more unreleased stuff out there like this it should be made public. This is cracking music. I had forgotten just how talented this guy is.Remember this man had tubular bells in the top 100 for ten years, Thats one hell of an achievement.

I remember this album from when i had the record, The CD is fantastic, The replay production is great, as i know that some remastered cds can sound worse than the first issues, especially to any hifi buff.
This is a brilliant work of Mike Oldfield,much overlooked.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cracker, 29 Feb 2012

For a modern cd, excellent, a very good dynamic range, you can hear everything. As someone hacked off with buying cds only to find that they sound like its being played on a car radio, my faith is restored. A true album that sounds very live indeed. A great selection of Alisons classics. A fantastic album and im not even a country fan, but an album thats made me rethink.

As a non-scot and unable to speak Galic, i gave this a punt having heard her on the Trans-atlantic sessions.
Not dissapointed, a good laid back album, definately an album a will be listening to a lot. A good open sound.
Well worth the punt.

This review is from: Ascolta (Audio CD)
I am amazed that i have never heard of Izzy before. a great breath of fresh air, well put together and most of all an expanded and open sound. I bought this on a Punt; If you like female vocal, Irish and classical give it a go. Going on the cover image you may think its more modern, but its not. a really good suprise.

1.0 out of 5 stars compressed and loud, 18 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fearless (Audio CD)
On playing through a good system this sounds awful. The music is great and yet has been ruined by the mastering. It is as if the cd has been designed with the ipod market in mind, and therefore compress the range and boost the volume. This gives it that tin pot sound that lacks any detail. The cd is now in the unplayable box.
