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. ;-)
