Although Tubular Bells II receieved mixed reviews upon it's release, it was well received by listeners and reached number one.

Mike Oldfield returns with the second installment of his "Tubular Bells" trilogy, in an attempt to carry forward the legacy left by the original album in 1973.
It was always going to be a challenge to follow on from such an iconic, era-defining record, and yet somehow he pulls it off with great success.

Tubular Bells II is a progressive rock masterpiece from start to finish. Oldfield is relentless in his delivery; each track feeds into the next without cessation and he achieves this with acute finesse.

The opening track offers a clever rearrangement of the familiar theme from Tubular Bells I, beginning with a soft piano and building up into a more emphatic sequence.

As each track naturally flows into the next, there are a plethora of weird and wonderful instruments used including guitars, organs, mandolin, banjo, glockenspiel, even bagpipes; and of course tubular bells.

"The Bell" situated halfway through is a wonderful celebration of music and all of the different effects and instruments that can be used to create a given sound.

Progressive rock may have seen its heyday long ago, but here is an album that will never sound dated and will continues to echo through the corridors of time.
