Best Mike Oldfield Ever!
Wow! Mike Oldfield set out to do something different and succeeded. In my book, this is an absolute work of art. Get it, listen to it, listen to it again, and enjoy it!!! What a treasure! This is the most beautiful music I have ever heard.

Studio and live: both terrific
A great double disc package. Disc one is the lovely studio recording of Music Of The Spheres. Hypnotic and stirring, this composition reveals Oldfield to be mature and still surprising. The second disc is a live recording of the same composition. Equally lovely and terrific sound. Nice to compare the two.

Uplifting album that is totally orchestral not electronic
I wouldn't try to use this album to compare to Mike Oldfield's previous work. As stated by Mike, his intention from day one is to produce a totally orchestral album, and no electronic components to it. I read the performers on the sleeve of my newly purchased "Music of the Spheres" (thanks to CD Universe). It lists no less than 77 piece members in this orchestra. This does not include the list of singing performers. When you listen to some of his work, you will feel some ex-Tubular bells mixed in, but to suit this album. I have stated before about my kind of higher-end type of hifi system, and it is excellent at bringing out the best of orchestestral performances, outstanding singing. This album will no doubt take you to a higher plane. Best to listen to this under dim/no light without any distractions, set time aside, close your eyes, and let your mind breathe Music of the Spheres. My favourite track is Aurora. I can play it again and again. I am an avid fan of Hayley Westenra. Her performance in Oldfield's - On My Heart is a "Match made in heaven". She is a young performer, who has been most successful in a solo career. She has also worked with Andrea Bocelli. Mike has made an excellent choice with Hayley. You won't be dissapointed if you have not heard her before. If you have, you will feel that you've been spoilt. I have only recently discovered Lang Lang, who is an absolute prodigy on the Steinway. He has also worked with Andrea Bocelli, now if Oldfield and Bocelli are picking him to perform, rest assured you will really get to find out how to really bring out potential in a steinway piano. I am convinced the piece - Phophecy includes one of Lang Lang's performances. Do not categorise this as the "Classical", this album is much more than just one genre. The artwork for this cover is quite thought provoking. You could conclude that the music is also such. Take my word, I would not give 5 stars unless in my opinion the album totally deserved it. It's unbelievably uplifting, without overwhelming, or draining you. Each new section of a track makes you feel to look for it. It all belongs together within each track, not repetitive as you would expect from lots of music out there. Mike makes a new section with a song, brand new, I would imagine it is quite easy to achieve with his experience in music, plus having nearly 80 performers at his disposal. I wouldn't be naive enough to state that all of Oldfield's work is second to none, but I do notice when albums have been put together very well. If you had to compare another album that has been produced extremelly well, then Jeff Wayne's The War of the Worlds will help you understand my point. If you trully want to get the absolute most out of this album, at least try to find a good hifi system that can play back well. When you hear every instrument, note, you hear the real difference on a great system. I am not saying if you have a poor system you cannot enjoy it, but this is an album to help you appreciate your hifi if you do have something spectacular. The recording and production is beyond description. You could escape in the study, listen to this album in the background, and get a lot of inspiring work done. Perhaps the Mozart effect if I may be so bold.

Just different
This disc is different from Tubular Bells. This disc is different from Tres Lunas. This disc is different from Light&Shadov. You need to listen to it before you buy !!!
