Mike Oldfield Gets Bolder in Bermuda!,
This review is from: Man On The Rocks (Audio CD)
This is a nice rock album with a lovely set of new songs delivered with style and panache by Struts' vocalist Luke Spiller. Mike Oldfield's musicianship is superb and his various guitar solos a joy to listen to. The opening track 'Sailing' is an absolutely cracking track, infectious, fresh, poppy, a hit single if ever I heard one. There are a few references to Queen in this music, aided and abetted by Luke whose long hair and toothy delivery is reminiscent of a certain Mr Freddie Mercury (although young Luke has nothing like the vocal range of the maestro). Highlights include the title track, 'Castaway', the very beautiful 'Following The Angels', and the bluesy rock track 'Irene'. Lovely to get some fresh music from the talented Mr Oldfield. Recommended.
