I must say that I am a huge fan of TB1 and it sat at No1 in my personal all time chart for years until this beastie unleashed itself. After a disapointing TB2, I took the plunge to purchase this album as I know that Mr O is a excellent musician. No disapointment here.

Some people might think that Mike Oldfield is just mercilessly cashing in on the success of the original 'Tubular Bells', but I like the re-worked albums and they are different enough to be interesting.
