Amorok by Mike Oldfield

10 October 2018

Coming from the mastermind behind Tubular Bells, comes an album title you shouldn’t confuse for Ragnarok.

This hour long song/album is nothing but atmosphere, instrumentals and progressive rock in general.If you all DON’T know by now, I love progressive rock because of the technicality, what you can do with it, some of the stories;if any, and the atmosphere behind it all. Mike Oldfield surely gets a reward for all of the following that I mentioned. There are flowing transitions everywhere, some crazy and some relaxing sound effects and synths, and some sick instrumentals. For those of you who are well versed in Morse Code, you may want to look out especially at around the 48 minute mark. Oldfield has a message to Virgin Records telling them how much he dislikes the,label with the phrase “F$&k off, RB” which is not exactly nessessary but The More You Know.

While some of the sounds and “sections” get repetitive at times, you can’t help but like the very soothing and sometimes hypnotic synths present within.

The hour long song has arrived people, enjoy it and worship it if you will. I give this album a 9.5/10.
