Why, O, why did they have to put the promo flash of L + S on a popup? my browser blocks all popups and it was annoying to change the settings. Anyway, once I got in it was a pleasant experience - 30 second clips of every track. Sunset caught my attention - love the guitar work I hear on that. This really whet my appetite & I can't wait to receive my CDs via Amazon - though they said it would take until end of Oct to reach here in Singapore :-(
Interesting news about the UMYX samples (I insert it below for those who block their popups):
Mike Oldfield's forthcoming album, 'Light and Shade' is the first ever album to feature multiple songs in U-MYX format.
U-MYX is an interactive music format which enables music fans to make their own, personalised mixes of artists recordings without needing any specialised knowledge or equipment.
U-MYX has gained huge international popularity in the last year through being adopted by many prominent artists, including Muse, Robert Plant, Paul McCartney, The Killers, New Order and many more.
The 4 included Mike Oldfield songs, Angelique, Our Father, Slipstream and Quicksilver are all wonderful archives of Mike's prolific instrumental talent, and are made all the more enticing by U-MYX's simple, interactive functionality.
Fans will be able to swap mixes amongst one another direct from their U-MYX players, and Mike will award his favourite mixer with signed copies of both Light and Shade, and his legendary Tubular Bells album.
