Hergest Ridge is the second studio album by English musician and songwriter Mike Oldfield, released on 28 August 1974 by Virgin Records. The unexpected commercial and critical success of his debut album Tubular Bells (1973) affected Oldfield, who decided against touring and avoided the press with his newfound fame

Формируйте собственную коллекцию записей Mike Oldfield. After the massive success of 'Tubular Bells', an album that made Mike Oldfield and the Virgin brand household names, it's almost surreal to hear the follow-up, 'Hergest Ridge', disappoint on every level. While the music itself isn't unlike what Oldfield did before, everything just seems so lifeless here.

However, all that changed when Mike 20 minutes or bust Oldfield settled nearby to escape the sudden limelight that was thrust upon him by the success of Tubular Bells. I can only hope to paint an overall image of both parts. Just like the Welsh countryside which inspired this album, Hergest Ridge is simple, yet has an underlying complexity that is delightful to unravel. We hear simple folk tunes turned, twisted and melded into many layers of aural pleasure.
