|"Wild Goose" is easily my favourite track from Voyager now; strangely enough, it took me a few years until I realized this. I had always thought of Mont St. Michel as the standout track, and of the rest of the album as forgettable new-celt-age; but at some point, on one of the rare occasions where I played the album and even got that far, I suddenly listened up, and I realized that this is indeed a great tune. I feel it's very Mike Oldfield, if you know what I mean, more so than the rest of the album, even including Mont St. Michel.|
It is unique, isn't it? There's something very special about "Wild Goose..." and I don't know whether to describe it as mystical, exotic, symbolic, or Romantic, but it never fails to stir me emotionally.
