Heard a track on the Prog Magazine show on TeamRock Radio and loved it straight away, and despite the fact that I don't speak a word of Hindi (other than any borrowed words long since adopted by the English language!) I'm really enjoying this album. It's clearly very influenced by European and American rock music, especially prog rock acts such as Porcupine Tree, but with the additional flavours of India. It's very melodic, mostly uptempo and gentle on the ears without being bland. I really wanted to buy a physical CD of theirs (being a bit old fashioned as I am) but until that's possible this download is an excellent purchase. Try Raastey first, apparently their biggest hit at home and I… Read more

I remember these from the 80's, although I must have missed some (and the Kinky Sex episode was definitely new to me as it was apparently banned at the time!), and the good news is that they are as funny as they ever were.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stirring stuff!, 12 May 2008
I love Mike Oldfield's music, and especially his repetitions and reworkings of familiar themes, something I know some reviewers see as lazy and/or boring, but I find the restatements and variations fascinating, and I love it when an almost familar tune from one album becomes something quite different on another. This is a fabulous example of taking Oldfield melodies old (and new) and taking them somewhere spectacular (well, outer space to be exact). I found this very stirring as well as beautifully restful, and it's wonderful to write to.

If you're new to Mike's music thanks to the new exposure he's got from Classic FM for this, can I suggest you also try his Millennium Bell… Read more
