It's Mike Oldfield!! Takes you back!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Time Machine (Audio CD)
Okay, so this is a bit cheeky but I do not have a problem with that. It's like Tubular Bells, Hergest Ridge and Ommadawn all rolled into one.
I readily acknowledge that this (in places) smacks of plagarism but it happens all the time - it SOUNDS LIKE!
There are "original moments" and the music is well played with lots of layered guitar - both electric and acoustic. There's subtle synths and nice gentle percussion - marimbas and the like, with a few interesting twiddly bits. Oh, and tubular bells!!!!
This takes me back to the Oldfield I loved and that is why I like it. There are hints of early Anthony Phillips but that fits well with the Oldfield 'emphasis'.
The music is gentle - in the main; with the odd work out.
Look - this is VERY Oldfield-ish, so there is your guide. But I find it quite complimentary and respectful; it does credit to "the man".
Don't expect anything really new or ground-breaking. I have docked a star because it is something of a clone, and, rather cheeky - just listen to the end of Part One!!!!
I know nothing about The Healing Road. Could it be M O in disgiuse?
For those of you who long for the TB, Hergest Ridge, Ommadawn, Incantations era - this might provide a fix.
