I just meant, as you said, that I can't really see Mike doing anything other than his way of doing things. He can't do anything BUT put his own stamp on it... as far as I know he's not put out anything which didn't sound like it came from him.
To bring this somewhat back to SirM's earlier points, about it being celtic music... I don't think its pure celtic. I don't think its pure Mike either, and you can see a blur there - its this "lets have a go at this" thing again. To compare, TSODE is very Mike, but that's because its not only an original arrangement, but also composition. Flowers in forests and women in Ireland and heroes and songs of suns have been done before, but TSODE was original. Thats pure Mike.
I think the same sort of way about Guitars really... theres that experimental attitude which seems to leave a lot of Mikes normal compositonal breathing room out of the picture (for me at least). There isn't very much on Guitars that I can go crazy over at all, Summit Day is nice, but other than that it hardly gets any play time for me.
Voyager is different. If it comes on, I can live with it in the background mostly, and won't search out something else. The only track I really go to purposefully is Mont St. Michel, (remember our wonderful conversation on that piece, everyone?) but even that's rarely.
I suppose like others here, I have to be in the right place - or the right mood to be able to receive it.

Everyone's interpretation is different, and everyone has a right to that opinion. There is no "right" one, I am adding this post to communicate my thoughts to share them with like-minded souls who will be able to comment in good nature.
