Étude. Only piece of music not written by Mike, best piece of music on the album. IMHO. :)

The eerie Evacuation and its great Fairlight CMI work!

(Pran's Departure has lost for a few points...)

'Bad News' has always been the best for me. So glad it's 1st along with 'Evacuation'.


That surrealistic atmosphere, the electric guitar-koto sound at the beginning of the song, and the strange seq'd fade out with the delayed claps... a unique and strange gem. Something really interesting as an eventual direction for further works like 'The Trap' or... 'Sunken Forest'???

Etude. When first listen to it long time ago, thought that track was made around the same time as Amarok album. I thought it was some sort of dropped out track or b-side of a single. Don't know why, maybe because of those strange "beats", flute sounds and overall sounding of that track, that reminded me of Amarok.

As for the "Etude" itself, i think this is one of the most atmospheric track that Oldfield has ever made, even when it's "only" a cover.
