4.0 out of 5 stars Innovative idea put into practice, 7 Nov. 2002
This review is from: 3 Lunas (Audio CD)
Mike Oldfield always likes using the latest technology for making his music. From the synth sounds in 'The killing fields' in the 80's to using the guitar through a synth for all the instruments (including drums) on 'Guitars' in the 90's. Tr3s Lunas is no exception, the new sax-guitar sounds excellent and is played with real passion, this along with great composition and with Mike's style the album is fantastic.'No mans land' and 'Sirius' are particularly atmospheric. Its also good to hear some nice piano pieces as well, which have been thin on the ground in Mike's recent albums. I found the album most enjoyable and it is one of my favourite Oldfield albums. Some of the tracks are a bit on the short side for Mike, but the quality is excellent.
The inter-active game that comes with the album I think is both innovative and inspiring. It's a great idea to put pictures to music, but to be in control of a surreal world in which you fly around examining different items of interest and listening to music is great. As you fly and approach objects the music changes depending on where you are, what your looking at and what you've done. Some of the music you hear is on the album but a lot of it is'nt. So it's a great bonus. The visuals are stunning. From the flying with fire birds to swimming with Dolphins, the detail is fantastic. Some of the set pieces such as the large child-like figure that slow dances above a lagoon or the snowy owl flight through a forest tunnel, are the reasons I keep going back to it again and again. The music is MP3 quality and accompany the proceedings perfectly.
Tr3s Lunas is a fantastic album whether you listen to just the album or play the game as well.
