My personal favourite is The Songs of Distant Earth, an incredible journey into the world of the metaphysical and the unreal.
Brought back to the world spotlight during the Olypmics reignited his career and a new generation has started to follow. Sentido January 25, Report.
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. I first listened to Amarok to test the system. I truly believe that Mike Oldfield made a Masterpiece with this.

In June , during the recording of Incantations , Oldfield and his siblings completed a three-day Exegesis seminar, a controversial self-assertiveness program based on Werner Erhard 's EST training program.

Although Oldfield considers himself primarily a guitarist, he is also one of popular music's most skilled and diverse multi-instrumentalists.
During the s Oldfield became expert in the use of digital synthesizers and sequencers notably the Fairlight CMI which began to dominate the sound of his recordings: from the late s onwards, he became a keen user of software synthesizers.
He has, however, regularly returned to projects emphasising detailed, manually played and part-acoustic instrumentation such as 's Amarok , 's Voyager and 's Guitars.
While generally preferring the sound of guest vocalists, Oldfield has frequently sung both lead and backup parts for his songs and compositions.
He has also contributed experimental vocal effects such as fake choirs and the notorious "Piltdown Man" impression on Tubular Bells.
Although recognised as a highly skilled guitarist, Oldfield is self-deprecating about his other instrumental skills, describing them as having been developed out of necessity to perform and record the music he composes.
He has been particularly dismissive of his violin-playing and singing abilities. Oldfield used a modified Roland GP8 effects processor in conjunction with his PRS Artist to get many of his heavily overdriven guitar sounds from the Earth Moving album onwards.
