Customer Review

on 8 May 2011
This is such a weird set of tracks to put together as a representative portrayal of Mike Oldfield. Tunes like Blue Peter and Portsmouth are so far removed from the mainstay of MO's work that they are conspicuous by their dual inclusion, one or the other maybe but not both.

Across his vast array of albums MO has amassed a fantastic selection of musical work and this album does little to reflect that skill. As an album I find little to recommend it to the listener, it will not give you a decent potted history of Mike's work and it will not inspire the occasional listener to delve deeper and sample the rest of the Oldfield catalogue. Why waste a whole disc giving us Tubular Bells? A cleverly re-edited medley would have been way better. This is just such a disappointing album that should have deserved 5 stars but the bizarre playlist really let it down.
