Editorial Reviews

An ethereal balance of poetic beauty, flute-enhanced melody, and gorgeously textured soundscapes. Oldfield's lyrical images about letting go and holding on, loss and discovery, and sea and sky, reflect the timeless theme of leaving the familiar behind and journeying toward the future.

Format: Audio CD
Terry Oldfield's "Turning Point" was inspired by the early voyagers who were ready and willing to leave everything familiar behind and sail through the oceans into the "great unknown". Writing the music coincided with some major changes in Oldfield's life. He had a dream a couple of years ago about being in an old library, and browsing through an old book. The words "turning point" jumped out at him, and he knew he had to make some major changes in his life. He moved his family from England to Australia, and also changed record labels. The songs reflect that transition, and also seem to be a tribute to the dreamers and risk-takers of the world. Most of Oldfield's earlier recordings (at least the ones that I'm familiar with) were primarily instrumental in nature, but this album consists of six vocal tracks and one instrumental piece. I tend to prefer the instrumentals, but the variety of vocalists and their individual singing voices and styles is very interesting and evocative. Oldfield provides most of the instrumentation with his signature flutes and keyboards. Some of the vocals have kind of a folkie feel to them. The lyrics are simple and direct, and with guitar and flute in the background, there is an easy-going mood. This is especially true in "Bright Star", which includes a charming children's choir and sounds of the ocean. I also really like "Into the Blue", which is darker and more complex, and the lyrics are haunting. "I'm taking the first ride out of my mind", and "I'm lost but I don't mind anymore" give you an idea of the searching and the emotional impact of the words. Matt Oldfield`s vocals and guitar are strong and convincing, and Terry's Irish low whistle and keyboards are atmospheric and powerful at the same time.Read more ›

One great piece... Guardian Angel, the rest of the music is nothing like this one. All together different style. I didn't care for it.

I loved the songs I heard from this CD, and I was eager to buy a copy. Within a few days after making my purchase, I recieved my product which was a demo version of the CD clearly marked "Not For Sale". I did not feel it was ethical to keep the CD so I sent it back with an explanatory letter. I don't expect to see the roughly $7 I paid for the CD and shipping. Neadless to say, I'm not a happy camper.
