    The drums at the end of side 1 are epic! Great sounding album, flimsy vinyl, 180g pah!

      Agree this is a lovely album - it really is time that the entire mike oldfield back catalogue is re-released. I know that tubular bells 1-3 are widely available but there are so many other masterpieces like Amarok that need to see the light of day again

        This is an unbelievable-terrific record I listened to around 200 times when I was a teen. I am so glad I grabbed this copy today, which not only sends me right back to those glorious years of mine, but that it is technically outstanding! A great pressing that sounds just perfect on my sound system. Super happy with it!!!
