I wasn't sure about the whole idea of this project of yours, Kay ... so for a long time I just left it alone. But yesterday I decided it couldn't do me any harm to give it a try, so I did....
First observation - what a lot of work! No one could say you hadn't put enough effort in! Second observation - although there were sections where I wasn't sure I liked the combinations that were being made, mostly I enjoyed the unusual presentation of the music - the sense of familiar themes turning up in unfamilar circumstances.
But then, as CD 1 approached its end (and I was really looking forward to hearing the second CD by then) ... oh, oh, oh. No, no, it can't be, I thought. The Margaret Thatcher monologue!!!!! The worst artistic judgement Mike Oldfield ever made, and close to being an unforgiveable sin - and here it is presented as a highlight!
Oooh, it cuts like a knife! How I wish you'd left that out.
