In todays (30/09/05) Sun (london tabloid), there was a review of L+S.

A mixed one, the type where Tub Bells gets at least 2 mentions, but they gave the new album 4 out of 5, which is pretty positive. I guess we get blinded by our love of Mike's previous works and forget what the new audience will see.

Have you lot seen any other media reviews, and what were they like?

The answer is 42 - but what is the question?

Personally, I have read nothing in terms of a review. Having said that, I avoid most media and tabloids given my profession.  :/

@Tubularman, has that radio program you sent me been posted on the site anywhere yet. If not, perhaps you could post it here. Was that Polish radio?

Anyway, I listened to it twice, thanks so much for sending it to me, 2 hours 10 minutes of Mikes music and even with the talking in another language, you still get up to 2 hours of music.

For those who are unsure about this new album it is excellent to listen to this program for two reasons, because it blends all the old stuff with the new so you can get a better picture of how much Mikes work has changed (or perhaps deteriorated) over the years, and it is interesting to see what they have chosen as his 'best' work.

They started with Mike and Sally and Children of the Sun, mentioned Kevin Ayres and the Whole World of course and then played a few minutes of TB moving quickly into the rocky section (my fave bit). At 9:30 - Guilty, 13:20 - Arrival, FMO, at 20:00 Moonlight Shadow, 23:00 To France, 28:00 Pictures in the Dark and When the Nights on Fire. 35:00 - Innocent, 38:00 - No Dream (surprise), 43:00 - Sentinel, 47:00 - Let there be Light, 53:00 - Women of Ireland (or something from Voyager) 56:00 - Celtic Rain from Voyager, 59:00 - another surprising inclusion but my favourtie track, the Source of Secrets, TBIII. Couple from Guitars I think (or Mill Bell), Pacha Mama, Sunlight Shining through Clouds. Then they played some more TB before moving into Romance (another surprise entry) from L&S. 1hr20 - Heavens Open (now that's a surprise), Shadow on the Wall, Hibernaculum from TSODE, 1hr30 -  Rocky from L&S, Celt from QE2, Moonlight Shadow and FMO again, why?, Resolution from L&S, Another supreme 6 minutes or so of TB, Mount Teidi, one from L&S they accidentally called Surfing but it wasn't, don't know it, Crises, and finally, 2hr06 - Surfing from L&S. The address they kept giving was (I think) www.intercosmos.com

Hopefully you'll all get to hear it, was very interesting.

There is a review in the December ed. of CLASSIC ROCK magazine, with a mediocre review from Jerry Ewing, a regular Oldfield contributor, who admits to being an unshamed Fan!
p.s you'd have thought that if he was a fan we might have seen this in the SEPTEMBER EDITION, i.e when it was RELAVENT!

Are you trying to tell me that "Freddy Star ate my Hamster", the Sun front page headline from years back, wasn't true? And there I was wearing it in a tee-shirt for years...

I'd never looked at "The Sun" before, but I decided to go look after reading this, to see what the fuss was about. I found that on page 3, they weren't wearing T-shirts....

Sorry to dissapoint you Matt, but I don't believe a word of the "Freddie Star ate my Hamster" headline had any truth in it at all :laugh: .

They wouldn't be wearing t-shirts on page 3.  Speak about double standards it's deemed OK for The Scum, er Sun to publish pictures of topless females, but where's my pic of a topless  hippy guy  
:) .

Are you in the US?

I've seen Oldfield stuff maybe 10 or so times in the US media in the last 30 years (not counting all the Halloween playing of Tubular Bells, or Exorcist film ads).

Yes, I'm in the Us. I don't pay much attention to the media though, and I haven't known about Mike Oldfield for very long, so maby I've seen him and didn't realize it.

TubularBelle, could you be so kind as to pass me a link or a copy of the radio programme? It sounds very interesting!  :D

Hey Toby, you have a great webpage by the way (completely out of topic! ). Very nice designs/art!

It is a shame that Mike doesn't work with you (although I find the L&S cover quite reasonable indeeed).


In Sweden, there has been no attention at all to L&S. As usual, the press hates Mike here I guess. Understandable however, since popular music jounalists are very untalented in this country.
