Reviews

  1. Chris Spector, Midwest Record

    :

    “Impressionistic audio look at down under that sounds like it has you waking up from a bender in the middle of the outback with flies buzzing around and mysteries lurking everywhere even if everything seems to be in the wide open. Certainly something that seems like fun to listen to once you fill up your billabong (if you know what I mean) and let the movie play out in your head. A interesting change up for Oldfield who seems to have delivered a soundtrack that’s waiting for a movie to happen around it.”

  2. Music Design

    :

    “Terry Oldfield likes to release albums that pay homage to other cultures, framing traditional melodies and instrumentation with his dreamy ambience and characteristic flute playing. Spirit of Australia continues in that trend, focusing attention on the Australian Outback. To begin, Oldfield lays down a bed of nature sounds, like crickets, frogs and other sounds that typify the sounds of a night in the Outback. Next, whirls of dreamy synthesizers help to conjure imagery of a land that is both majestic and primal. Oldfield’s flute collection is vast with specimens from all corners of the world; here he chooses alto and soprano flutes for a clean, crisp sound. To finish the album off, he peppers the recording with didgeridoo drones and tribal rhythms. The soundscape is contemporary with a new age flair, while still maintaining a clear tribute to the unique sounds of indigenous Australia.”
