Amarok

Amarok:our store was listed on the main board of the stock exchange of usa limited on march 4 2005. "Amarock" and "Heaven's Open" were intentionally designed by Oldfield to frustrate Virgin. He was sick of them trying to turn him into a pop artist, so with "Amarock" he created an album that was impossible to market, but still shows his amazing talent. With "Heaven's Open", he finally gave them a pop album, intentionally made to be terrible. Here's what the Wikipedia page has to say about Amarock...Wikipedia - "Virgin Records had been trying to convince Oldfield to release a sequel to Tubular Bells, though probably more for the name recognition than anything else, particularly as Oldfield's contract was due to expire. Instead, he created an album that seems to have been designed to be as much a delight to his fans as it was a frustration to Virgin.It is next to impossible to isolate any one short, radio-friendly section of Amarok without it seeming out of place, and thus no single could be cut and released separately, nor could the album ever be played on popular radio. Similarly, Amarok has never been performed live in its entirety, though Oldfield has played excerpts from time to time. Oldfield had expressed many times his displeasure at Virgin's lack of promotion of his works, and Amarok might have been his revenge: a completely unmarketable album that still showcased his talent as a composer and performer. Oldfield did attempt to circumvent Virgin and create publicity for the album by offering a prize of £1000 of his own money to the first person to find the "secret message" hidden within it,[2] although the competition received little coverage and consequently its impact on sales was negligible. The message was actually a piece of Morse code found 48 minutes into the piece and spelling out "F*** OFF RB", a direct statement to Virgin chief Richard Branson.Both Amarok, along with Heaven's Open (Oldfield's final album for Virgin) can be seen as a definite "farewell" to the company, and not an overly polite one, either. Along with the aforementioned Morse code message, the album's back cover reads: " HEALTH WARNING - This record could be hazardous to the health of cloth-eared nincompoops. If you suffer from this condition, consult your Doctor immediately ". This message could also be interpreted as a skit on the spoof listening instructions on the sleeve of Tubular Bells." - WikipediaNot only all that, but at the end of "Heaven's Open", on which he actually sang lead vocals, you can hear quiet laughter and Mike saying "F*** off!"So anyway, my personal view is that I already love Amarock after hearing it maybe four times, but I'm going to need more time to appreciate it fully. I know I will, as I always do with many other great progressive rock albums, so I'm giving it 5 stars.unisex,ranking top9,oklahoma city mallAmarok
