    @catwith2tails given the circumstances in which this was composed, you can feel it was written in the times of isolation and mental restoration, recharging his batteries if you will. While I like the bombasticness of TB, I enjoy HR's laid-backness.

    The most beautiful composition Mike Oldfield has ever done.

    Just to notice, there are two versions of this album: the original from 1974 and the remixed version by Oldfield in 1976. It's very likely that the most known and listened version is the second, because all media created after 1976 contain the remixed version. If you're a fan (or just curious), I suggest you to listen to the first version that - in terms of arrangements and ambience - is sometimes very different from the later one. I hope you'll enjoy it :) (I'm not very sure of the remixing date, correct me if I'm wrong)

    overshadowed somewhat by the previous album (TB) and the follow on album (OMMADAWN). Still a great album in its own right with some of Mike's best work.

    Some of Mike's stuff seems a little formulaic for me. If TB is to Oldfield, what the Da Vinci Code was to Dan Brown, then this is Mike's Angels & Demons.

    The original mix rules! If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
