well, even if I'm not in the "old generation" (I was 4 when TB 1 was released) and additionaly count TMB to my favourite Mike-albums, I simply don't like this.
I don't like the video, 'cause it looks dead, without any emotion, sterile, however u may call it.
it doesn't need a "Mike Oldfield" to create a video like this these days.....
the music: well, it's okay that Mike wanted to make it sound "better", but "better" doesn't have to mean "mechanical" IMHO. about the single: I guess it will come up with further violations done by DJ Whoever DSancing Around The Toilet, so what about a rave-version of what once was "Sailor's Hornpipe" with the name "Mike Oldfield" on the cover?
just my 2 cents,
Bootlegs should be shared not sold.
