Oldfield. Mike - Amarok (1990)


The 14th album from this English artist.

Mike Oldfield did the bass, synths, pan pipes, pipes, woodwinds, strings, guitars and numerous other instruments on this album.

He had help from five guests who provided uillean pipes, African choir, spoken words and vocals.

After some rather poor pop albums, Mike Oldfield returned to the basis. 

That means symphonic new age music with lots of his own instruments. 

There is no songs here and the music on this one hour long album is one piece of music.  

The sound is the usual pipes based sound Mike Oldfield has made his own sound. A welcome return to this sound.

The music is somewhere between decent and good. 

I am not won over by this album but this is a good one if you want to find out what this artist is all about.

2.5 points
