Mike Oldfield has always been a bit of a musical dilettante, and Voyager is no exception. If he didn't come by it honestly, one might almost suspect this album's Celtic influences derived from that music's being in vogue when this disc was recorded. There are certainly some enjoyable melodies herein, but nothing that rises above the ordinary. Oldfield's stinging guitar work is in evidence, and some synthesized bagpipes try to lend it an air of majesty, but ultimately this recording doesn't really voyage much of anywhere. --- Ross Boissoneau, AllMusic Review

 

Great change of direction for Voyager. The cheesy part about it though has to be the cover! Musically it is very pleasant and Oldield plays the Celtic theme very well. I think there are a few dull moments but the better songs like ' The song of the sun', 'Celtic rain', 'The Hero' and the superb' Wild Goose flaps it's wings' save the day.I still can't get into 'Mont. St Michel' though.Normally Oldfields longer tracks are the most accessible for me but this one eludes me. --- Chris S, progarchives.com
