Mike Oldfield's 6th album, and the first to break from long album length pieces to shorter pieces that are more commercial. Despite this, there is plenty to like about this album and there is still plenty of the old Mike Oldfield in this album. Although some of pieces are harder edged and more rock rather than folk there are still lots of whimsical pieces. This album also features the collaboration of Maggie Reilly which will bring more commercial success in the 1980s with his next album. Unlike some of his earlier albums, the recording quality is stellar.
