5.0 out of 5 stars QE2 - Brilliant and inspiring, 27 Jan 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: QE2 (Audio CD)
As I increase my Mike Oldfield collection I finally got QE2 (as I'm trying to get them in order), this was my next stop. First up is Taurus 1 and it feels fantastic, the classic touch of Oldfield. Pulsing and haunting at the same time, which is followed by Sheba. There's something about the synthed vocal chanting which really captures me. Both tracks have it and make them very special in combination to the rich musical environment.
A very good reworking of Arrival (a track by ABBA)is also here, nice and atmospheric.
Wonderful Land is a great tribute to The Shadows, again the reworking is brilliant. The title track QE2 has tones of the first two on this album, like a continuing thread which feels totally comfortable.
The other tracks: Conflict, Celt and Molly are great tracks in their own right and fit nicely within the framework of the album as a whole.
If your a collector of Oldfield albums, or just looking to enter his wonderful world of music, I recommend QE2 as a brilliant choice.
