As others have already said, this is an album which will appeal to all of his fans. The first side is a purely instrumental track whilst the second side contains several more accessible 'pop' tunes, the highlight of which - for me - is "Flying Start" featuring the late-lamented Kevin Ayers.
Super stuff all around!

By producing this record, Mike Oldfield created an album for every taste in music. You like his older (instrumental) works in the tradition of "Tubuar Bells" or "Crises"? Listen to "The Wind Chimes". You like to listen to his popsongs? No problem, take the B-side. Even choosing from male or female vocals is possible.
Although "Islands" has not the same power or musical inspiration like the early Mike-Oldfiled-records, it is still one of my favourites. There are not many records as well-balanced as this one. And Bonnie Tyler's voice is outstanding!
