5.0 out of 5 stars The masterpiece of a master, 19 July 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Amarok [HDCD] (Audio CD)
An energetic, passionate, sweeping symphony of music in many moods. Wailing rock guitar, folksie melodies, world-music tones...even an Airfix kit and a Maggie Thatcher impression! This piece carries you on at a considerable pace, non-stop for roughly an hour. The flow from section to section is often quite amazing - yet for all its many different parts the piece holds together and intertwines magnificently. It's a powerful piece, and a happy, triumphant piece. Moving and uplifting. Does away absolutley with any grounds for saying Oldfield's music is 'new age' or 'muzac' - This is a classic in a class of its own. Recognised by Oldfield fans as the masterpiece, try it, for something completely genuine and entirely on its own. But beware - this is mighty powerfull stuff - not for 'cloth eared nincompoops' who prefer easy-listening, three-minute pop songs.

Very well put indeed! I just loved your description of it being a "powerful, happy and triuphant piece." That's exactly what it is (besides being a lot more, of cource)! It has more raw (and sophisticated) energy, and more divercity, than anything I've ever heard from Mr. Oldfield.
