A beautiful masterpiece,
This review is from: Songs of Distant Earth (Audio CD)
As someone who is in the aerospace industry, I really appreciate Oldfield doing an album like this. It seems as if I describe most of Oldfield's albums as masterpieces. It is not an untrue statement to say most of them are. Songs of Distant Earth is just that. It should also be mentioned that it is very difficult to describe music as beautiful. Somehow, beauty is the word that comes to mind when I think of this album. Outstanding beauty. I think that it is probably due to the recordings of Apollo 8 being played, which make me think of how beautiful the Earth looks from space.
If I could, I would give this album 6 stars. It would be the only time I have ever wished I could.
