Elements of Mike Oldfield

The concept of ‘Elements’ groups Mike’s music into several categories which we hope wil help you discover more of his work.

Whilst it’s really impossible to segment any artists’ work in such a stringent way, we wanted to find a way to make Mike Oldfield’s music more accessible to an audience unfamiliar with his work.

Each ‘Element’ takes a group of albums that seem to share some familiar qualities and tone. For example, Mike Oldfield’s first 3 albums (“Tubular Bells”, “Hergest Ridge” and “Ommadawn”) have a similar musical structure and tone of voice.

So these albums we refer to as the “dawn” series.',
