Everybody knows Mike Oldfield from his soundtrack:: Exorcist (Tubular bells) & his latest presence at the Olympic Games in London 2012.

I bought Amarok when I was 15 years of age. Now I'm 38 years old.
Amarok is one of the albums that I listen so once in a while and that for the last 23 years...

The CD cover has a little story inside about 2 men who are walking to a huge 'Golden statue' that's making a noise or sound witch can be felt and heard. But you can't explain it to someone else.

Yesterday when I cleaned up a secondhand Denon Micro set AMP. I first listened to Amarok to test the system.

I truly believe that Mike Oldfield made a Masterpiece with this.
Throughout the Musical sound scape, Mike uses all kinds of techniques & sounds in such a way, that the most stupid listener is forced to finds the zero point of truthfully knowing how Sounds, Instruments, Harmonie, Rhythm & Natural structures are blend together.
If you hear the Golden Statue? Then Mike has penetrated your brain and has given you the most beautiful gesture you can get.

:: Natural connection between brain and ear ::

Musical shock therapia I want to call it.
I still can enjoy the programming of different styles and there blending.

I've been a Studio Amateur DJ who was keen on a proper, tight, smooth blending mix.
Amarok was my foundation to find other great music.
