Album: Tago Mago
Release Date: February 1971
Date Listened: 14 October 2017
Remarks: No drugs were harmed in the making of this recording.
Overall, I enjoyed this album. Even at it's freakiest moments. It has a very pleasant, psychedelic thrum to it that reminds me of Barrett-era Floyd though this digs into slightly deeper, darker, and more abstract places. On first listen, I'm not sure what all the fuss is about.
Stand Out Tracks: Paperhouse, Mushroom, Halleluwah, Aumgn, Bring Me Coffe Or Tea
Artist: Mike Oldfield
Release Date: 25 May 1973
Date Listened: 27 September 2017
Remarks: The original masterpiece. It's a must listen of course, and in many ways worth the hype. Perhaps it is the closest we have yet to come to fusing classical and minimalist high art with youthful rock n roll energy.
Stand Out Tracks: Part One is better than Part Two.
