This is one of the best albums ever. The operatic tenor DOES belong here. And in my opinion as well as that of other huge fans of Sally, "Mirrors" (the inserted single) does NOT belong here. Make a backup copy with that one deleted and it'll flow even better... In any case, get this CD -- it's an even more astonishing, and more artful, piece of beauty than Vashti Bunyan's debut from 1969.

I think my Mom had this record in the 70's, when I was a kid, as it sounded familiar when I first played it a few months ago. She had told me about it yeeears ago, (I had forgotten all about it, being a kid) since it had some Tolkien-inspired music on it (and I am an old school Tolkien fan). I was happy to see it was on cd, and bought it a few months ago. Wow, I am so happy I bought it!!! The songs are *so* beautiful and atmospheric. I gave it four stars instead of five, *only* because I dont care for the male singer (who I call "Opera Man" :p) who sings a bit on the 'Songs of the Quendi' set (song 2) and the final song. She really doesn't need any help on this album!! And that she played the majority of the instruments herself is absolutely amazing. Its just a gorgeous, relaxing, comforting, inspiring cd and I really recommend it. If you like Celtic music, folk music, new age, 70s non-rock music, Froud, Tolkien, and things that are a bit magical, you'll love this. Goes well with a nice cup of tea after a long day ;)

This is a magical CD and if you do actually like Tori Amos and Kate Bush this is something that you are going to really enjoy listening to.

We had this as an LP years ago and just bought the CD. It was so overwhelming to hear it again, I cannot believe I did not buy this earlier!

It is a magical album that is more than just music, it's capable of transporting your mind to a different realm, for lack of another word. It's an experience for mind, body, and soul.

She does all of the harmonies except for a man in a song or two, and hearing the different layers of her voice blend together is such a treat. The percussion and keyboard are hauntingly beautiful.

I discovered this album in the eighties and I've never got tired of it. Sally's voice and the melodies in this album are beautiful, inspiring and relaxing; every song is beyond perfection. Those people that like soft and envolving melodies from female singers will be amazed with this album.

I can't believe I just discovered this! This music is beautiful... and it is rare that I come across music that I appreciate like this. The music, lyrics, and Sally Oldfield's vocals come together in what I consider an absolute work of beauty. I've had and listened to Mirrors and Water Bearer on another album for years, but I had no idea about "Songs of the Quendi" (track 2), which is somewhat of an extension of "Water Bearer."

This album has significantly increased my respect and love for Sally Oldfield's music. I can definitely hear some inspiration from Mike Oldfield in there as well.

I highly recommend this album to anyone... whether or not you are a Sally/Mike Oldfield fan. I'm still just puzzled why it took so long for me to listen to and enjoy this fabulous work!

Sally Oldfield has been a big success everywhere but in the US, and the only reason I can see is she was overshadowed by her brother, Mike.

This album strikes me as very innocent both in its sounds and ideas. A purity of joy and an almost naive voice, it's a real mood lifter that takes advantage of mystery and nature to create a sound like bells and clear water. Soothing, original, and yes, you can sing along.

I had this album about 20 years ago but lost it somehow in the move back to the U.S. from Japan where I was teaching English. I really missed it so I ordered it here on Amazon and just got it today. I drove down to Ocean Beach in San Diego, parked and put in the CD. It was cool and overcast so I had the windows rolled all the way up and was pleasantly lost in listening to and very much enjoying it when I was suddenly startled out of my reverie by someone pounding on my window! A surfer was standing there and he said: "Man, who IS this? She's GREAT!!! I just laughed and said: "It's Sally Oldifeld, Mike's sister" He wanted to see the cover with all the info on it. He said that he was going to go to Amazon and get a copy also. That's the effect this CD has on people. I'm really happy to have it again. I highly recommend it.
