That promo got me excited, seemed like a long awaited sequel to the Tubular Bells book with analysis by David Bedford. Perhaps eventually it will be.

It's safe to say Amarok is genuinely considered a giant among fans and was a welcome return to roots for a lot of us at the time.

I've never been very big on reading music but if it's note for note I'd love to have the score in a book and pore over it when I'm in the mood. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

Best of luck with it.  :)

There will be small musical notation examples in the analysis section but not the full score.

A book about Amarok, Mike's greatest album.  That's a godsend and the best news I've heard all year!  I'll buy it in a heartbeat thankyou!  :cool:
