Well, I waited a long time before posting about RTO. I just want to say thank you to Mike Oldfield. I've been a long time fan of his work and like a lot of people I like his early work the most. Tubular Bells, Hergest Ridge, Ommadawn and Incantations are my alltime favourite albums and I have all of the different versions on cd, vinyl and on my IPod.
When RTO came out I was very anxious and a little weary . I started listening to part one and well...what can I say?
This felt like a homecoming!!! There are so many wonderful things about this album!!! The melodies, the guitar playing, the atmosphere,...
This is the Mike Oldfield music that I fell in love with long time ago. It is so great that he made this album!! This music sounds like the music he made around the time of TB, HR and Ommadawn.
I really hope he will return to HR and Incantations as well. Or even better: continue like this for some more albums. RTO is up there with the first four albums! Before anyone asks: I also like Amarok but that album is a little lower on my list than the first four albums and RTO .
So if you feel a little glum
To Hergest Ridge you should come
