Very sorry to say that Incantations has scraped in at no. 70 in the UK Album chart - sales must have really tailed off in the later half of the week as the midweeks had him within the top 30 - Maybe due to the bad press about the audio glitch... :(

BBC RADIO outside the Uk works fine as I said in an earlier post here (PAGE 1!;) I am in Greece (not the skin condition) the country & nightspore is in OZ so if he could get it there where off Earth are you, its only TV that's a problem, I got satellite and had it on comp via, MEDIA PLAYER & recorded to hard drive of set top box via sat TV/RADIO, no probleMO.

Any one who needs help please you have only to ask.

Also in the Drowned in Sound interview - http://drownedinsound.com/in_dept....ldfield - he gives us an idea of what maight be coming up in the near future.

 MO  "I’ve been working on a mix of ‘North Star’, a track from Platinum that is sounding good. Haven’t got QE2, haven’t got any of the later albums yet. My big project will be the complete 5.1 of Amarok, providing we’ve got the Multi-Track tapes, because that’s one of my favourites."

I'm amused by the idea of this forum going:

Hooray! We successfully kicked up a stink about the glitch! :)

then

Nobody bought the album, possibly due to negative publicity about the glitch! :(

Yup it is all our fault. We brought it on ourselves. uhum

But if they do a new advert like NEW FIXED version. Maybe some poeple would reconsider buying it. They should put stickers on such CDs.

It may be a long while before we get anything new judging by these comments: "I’m semi-retired now. Not really interested in the music business. " &

So your priorities have shifted?

Yes. I dedicated most of my life to try and make the most beautiful, innovative, powerful music that I can, and hadn’t had much of a life to experience all the other things in life. That’s what I’m doing as I get older.

I agree its time he did something new, is he really going to re-release all his old albums upto and including Amarok?(maybe more)I can't take all this negativity and criticism each time he re-releases an album,   Its also questionable if any more albums really need to be re-mastered after Incantations!!! the recordings thereafter are all good in my view. It would be far better for Mike and universal to release one big box set of extras/rare tracks, etc.
And no matter how many times Mike says he's semi retired, he isn't, he will never stop making muisc, its in his blood, he can't do anything as well as music, and he knows it, the only difference is he can have a gap of how ever many years he likes between albums, we know he has been writing with Don Black, and he said he has had recording sessions via the internet, so has won't stop making music.

I don't hear anything wrong with Amarok, as far as I can tell a remaster would be pointless IMO.

however a 5.1 REMIX would be most welcome.

I'm not sure whether there's anything wrong with Amarok as it is - I've listened to it so many times that my perception of it on a purely sonical/acoustic level is bound to be biased. :) But I do know that, as I have both the old Virgin CD and the HDCD remaster, the former sounds better than the latter. Same with Incantations - I have both copies, the original Virgin CD to me sounds way better than the remaster.

Strange comment from someone who has only made 5 comments in two years...Forums are about opinions, and you cant pretend that people on this site are not fans, thats an insult to the people who contribute here regularly.....From what Ive seen over the years, they are a pretty dedicated bunch and informed as well. As for Amarok...nothing wrong with it...it aint broken, so why try and fix it? Id prefer something fresh....he can do it still if he chooses.....he may be fed up with the music business, but its exactly that, that has given him the wealth to semi retire....funded by us his fans....if we didnt love his music, well there wouldnt be a forum would there, and without an opinion there wouldnt be a debate to be had...I'll stand by my earlier comment....Id much prefer something new. Ive spent a fortune on MO products over the last 30 odd years, I dont really need a brand new shiney Amarok.....theres nothing wrong with it as its stands.

I am agree with you. Oldfield fans are excellent collectors but not very pleasant fans

Hi Bahamas - I can see how it may come across that way. The forum is a bit unsettled at the moment - but I'm sure it will balance itself out - like it usually does.

You are VERY welcome.  :)
