Tubular Bells III

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
Tubular Bells III is a record quite similar to Mike Oldfield's second update of the original classic, recorded just six years prior. The production methods are a bit more polished and the tone is more serious, but the music remains dreamy, somewhat overevocative new age-with-a-beat music, quite similar to Enigma -- thanks to the Eastern textures of vocalist Amar on three tracks. There are a few occasional moments of levity, however, including the raging guitar stormer "Outcast" and a remake of Oldfield's early-'80s hit "Man in the Rain."

    Tubular Bells 3 is by far the best!

    This album proves that Mike Oldfield can accomplish anything. 'The Source of Secrets' is a great beginning and sets the mood for the entire album. 'Outcast' is his best guitar piece ever. 'Man in the Rain' is a moving, yet uplifting song that fits the album to it's fullest. 'Top of the Morning' is an awesome piece of piano. 'Far Above the CLouds' is by far the best ending to an album ever (by Mike Oldfield himself, or anyone). The bells have spoken again, and have told the world that Mike is by far the best musician, and that Tubular Bells 3 is by far the best album.
