Customer Reviews

A great selection of Mike through the years.

Very pleased this has been released as it presents an excellent selection of Mike Oldfields work over the years that many may not be aware of.

Some really superb choices here.

Have just bought it haven't listen to it yet but it'll be magic

Mike Oldfield great music to open the Olympics with. British music at it best.

1* (Only Because There's No 0* Option) - A Cynical Marketing Ploy

Let me say right at the start, that I absolutely love Mike Oldfield's music (I've requested Ommadawn to be played at my funeral) and I've been an avid fan since I accidentally heard Tubular Bells in 1973 (yes, I'm that old) and started banging on about it long before it became the legendary recording it is.

I've lived through the highest peaks (Ommadawn, Amarok) and the deepest troughs (Light & Shade, Tr3s Lunas, both strangley absent on this compilation, I wonder why), faithfully buying Greatest Hits after Even Greater Hits, but this one Greatest Hits too far- enough already Mike, does the world really need another excerpt of TB and the like?

Yes, it's a good sample of some of his lesser known works (how often do you hear the genius/madness of Amarok played on the radio), but to bring this out on the same day as the deluxe versions of Platinum and QE2 (yes, I've bought them) and 2 days after his albeit triumphant appearance at the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony just smacks of a cynical marketing opportunity by his record company. There's not even anything new on this compilation to tempt us old timers into buying it, so, this time, sorry Mike, I'm not playing the game.

Stop the constant rehashing of old glories and bring us some new music, surely we've waited long enough.
