5.0 out of 5 stars Simply great - what more needs to be said?, 7 Nov. 1999
This review is from: Tubular Bells III (Audio CD)
I've been a Mike Oldfield fan since the original Tubular Bells, and he hasn't yet produced anything I haven't liked or that I have found disappointing. Over the years he has produced some remarkable albums, experimented with different techniques and sounds, yet at the same time produced a sound that is almost instantly recognisable as his. I haven't listened to "Guitars" yet (so apologies to those who think it's better than TB3), but I think it's fair to say TB3 is his best yet - and TB2 was a hard act to follow! It has a strong, powerful, flowing thread throughout the album, culminating in a very powerful and almost emotional climax (the sound of the tubular bells made the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end). Some criticism has been levelled at Mike for simply calling the album "Tubular Bells 3", but what's in a name? It's the music that is the important part, and listening to this album you can almost feel the creative energy that went into its production. My advice: if you never buy another Mike Oldfield album, buy this one!
