Guitars Review - For Him

July, 1999

For Him Magazine

Last summer, Tubular Bells composer Mike Oldfield was allegedly spotted staggering around Ibiza's demented live-sex-and-dance club Manumission. On the evidence of Guitars, however, the visit had little effect on him. Resisting the urge to knock back a couple of disco biscuits and start banging out dance tunes, the veteran muso opts to plunk away on a selection of guitars. The results are atmospheric, tastefully restrained, and sound exactly like background music in a suburban winebar.
