Mike Oldfield - The Best Of Mike Oldfield: Elements mp3 album

Elements – The Best of Mike Oldfield is a compilation album by Mike Oldfield, released in 1993 by Virgin Records. It was later released with the original Tubular Bells, as a double CD album. Other related releases include a 4-CD box set and a video album.

Elements' is a good compilation, no doubt, but it's pretty much an impossible task to try to summarize the music of Mike Oldfield on one disc. Even at the time of its release (1993), Oldfield's repertoire was so vast and constantly expanding that there's no way one album can cover every basis. With that in mind, 'Elements' does a good job of covering most of the more radio-friendly songs of Oldfield's back-catalogue.

Elements represents the many sides of Mike Oldfield, and is a short but interesting journey through some of this t's best efforts. Sixteen of his albums are spoken for, with the same number of tracks making up this assortment. The collection opens up with The Exorcist's theme, which peaked at number seven on Billboard's Top 40, and is Oldfield's claim to fame.
