Of the three, ‘Tubular Bells II’ is the king, the music is beautifully performed and the footage directed in a measured and engrossing way – watch out for the comic contribution of John Gordon Sinclair (of ‘Gregory’s Girl’, ‘Local Hero’ and ‘Fraggle Rock’ fame) during the ‘Altered State’ sequence, the 1992 incarnation of ‘Caveman’. Tubular Bells, the best selling instrumental album of all times, gets re-recorded by Mike Oldfield for the 30th anniversary of the original.Oldfield recreates Tubular Bells using a combination of the latest recording technology, software synthesizers, and vintage instruments, including many of the instruments used to record the original.

The picture editing is somewhat messy and there are far too many distant panning shots across the audience for my liking – the director even manages to completely miss many of the instrumentalist’s highlights such as Carrie Melbourne’s fast bass guitar riff that underpins the drum sequence during the closing moments of ‘Far Above the Clouds’. Rather than allowing the music to be presented for what it is, a superb work from a master composer and musician, this gilding of the lily is both highly distracting, fatiguing and, at times, downright annoying.
