SCIENCE FICTION MUSIC REVIEW #3: "Songs of Distant Earth" by Mike Oldfield (1994)

Republibot 3.0's picture

I love Mike Oldfield. I always have. I like musicians who don‘t - or can‘t - confine themselves to the limitations of a 5-minute radio friendly pop song, and though he‘s had his share of singles over the years, Oldfield is first and foremost an instrumental composer. Taking his cues from the emerging Prog Rock scene of the late 60s/early 70s, he was never quite exactly a prog himself, though he was something close to it.
