Mike Oldfield, Platinum (1979)
I was so into Mike Oldfield – and to think it all came from an album I can no longer listen to. But when you’re young and just learning about things with music you can be dazzled by something that’s actually not really even ever there. Oldfield’s multi-instrumental prowess and arranging capabilities for example. When I was 13-14-15 it seemed like he was a genius. Now, and for many years, it’s been laughable even trying to listen back to most of his catalogue. Take this for example. No, seriously, take it. I’ll never fucking listen to it again.
