Amarok is Mike's hidden gem. It ranks among his best works, definitely the best after 1983's Crises. The musicality is simply astonishing.

Considering the running time, it still sounds fine on vinyl. It is probably the longest running record i know of.

And yes, it is a masterpiece and probably the BEST album since Ommadawn. Yes i know, there were some good tracks (Taurus II for example), but as a whole, "Amarok" is perfect.

The big Revenge to the commercial Pop World. Plenty of Ironie, Fun, Folk & Virtuosity! His best work since Ommadawn. ;-)

Hi,

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.

Regards,

Marcel S

What an incredible album. This is probably the most experimental release from Mike. Just when everyone thought that he was going all the way into pop after "Earth Moving", here comes "Amarok", a 60 minute tour-de-force that goes all the way through Irish influences, African influences, Gipsy influences, and whatever you can think of influences blend into an amazing mixture of broken glasses, toothbrushes, guitars, shoes, and a whole lot more instruments. Everything sounds so beautiful and weird at the same time. Even if you hate Mike Oldfield, or even if you dont want anything to do with everything but Tubular Bells, take a peek at this one. It really opens some minds. Specially if you dont start fast forwarding the whole track.
