Performer: Mike Oldfield Album: Islands Label: Virgin. Tracklist: - 01. Mike Oldfield - The Wind Chimes (Part One And Part Two) 02. Mike Oldfield - Islands 03. Mike Oldfield - Flying Start 04. Mike Oldfield - North Point 05.

For Islands, Mike Oldfield gathered a host of musicians to further his run of more mainstream-sounding albums. The album includes vocals by Bonnie Tyler, Kevin Ayers, and Max Bacon, as well as saxophonist Raphael Ravenscroft (famous for his work on Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street"), along with the album's producer and former Yes member Geoffrey Downes. Even with such talent, Oldfield only garners sporadic instances of entertaining music, and the bulk of Islands comes off as quite pedestrian-sounding. Bonnie Tyler's passionate voice lifts the title track higher than any.
