do your self a Favour....


They say a picture is worth a thousand words, sometimes a song or music is worth the same amount. I am not one for buying hardly any music, but a blue moon comes along, and I hear something totally amazing, soothing, and soul filling. Mike oldfield is one of those composers. Every 10 years or so he makes a truly amazing album, his last I really got into was in 1994 (songs of distant earth). This one easily matches it, if not surpasses it. It also incorporates a thing call u-mix ..U-MYX is an interactive music format which enables music fans to make their own, personalised mixes of artists recordings without needing any specialised knowledge or equipment. So get the tracks and mix your own.

I go with what mike says, you cant categorise his music... its everything from soothing piano melodies, with modern contemporary guitar, to more upbeat numbers. But mostly this is stuff to sooth the soul with, and let your mind drift. This is the guy who at 16 composed on the best numbers (tubular bells), now being in his late 40's he is like a bottle of wine, getting better every year :) Well done mike.. .and do what Molly says.. do your self a favour and rejuvenate your soul with this wonderful 2 disc set, and mix up a few variations of your own... chill out with this, and I do mean CHILL.........
