Islands (Only the first 2 tracks).
Eduardo Nava | Mexico City | 02/22/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Wind Chimes (Parts 1 & 2) from the Islands album are one of the BEST Mike Olfield works. The Wind Chimes sounds Fresh and Full of Power and Happiness. Sure, Mike Oldfield has a lot of master pieces like Tubular Bells (I, II, III and Millenium), The Songs of a Distant Earth, Amarok, Crisis, QE2, and Five Miles Out. But, if you hear The Wind Chimes (Parts 1&2) carefully you will get looped inmediatly playing it and playing it all over again and again and again... It is too sad they (Parts 1&2) only lasts almost 22 minutes. At the end you keep thinking "Man, these tracks were really good to end too soon". You will agree with me this is a Master-Piece very well constructed and performed. It will refresh your mind and your soul. Its pure magic. Enjoy. (No comments for the last 5 tracks. Well, tack #5-"North Point" can be rated as good)."
