Two returns here. Me, to this blog (I really do need to update it though) and more importantly, Mike Oldfield released an album earlier this year entitled Return to Ommadawn. If, like me, you were a fan of his long format, multi-instrumental works (Tubular Bells, Hergest Ridge, Ommadawn), then this album is a treat and a half. It isn’t often that an album leaves me smiling after an initial listen, but this one did. If, on the other hand, your musical tastes lean toward dueling chainsaws, this may not be your cup of gruel. Go listen to Witch Vomit or Fetal Disgorge. (yes those are actual death metal band names).
