Man On The Rocks was produced by Stephen Lipson together with Oldfield. The backing tracks were recorded during June 2013 in Studio D of Village Studios, Los Angeles with Lipson. Oldfield has also recorded part of the album in his home studio in the Bahamas. On MAN ON THE ROCKS Luke Spiller is the only lead singer and even though this album varies stylistically from pop to adult alternative to rock there is a sameness from beginning to end that Oldfield's vocal albums have rarely (if ever) possessed. Some have stated that this has the feel of a Spiller solo album. I tend to agree as there is very little of the patented Oldfield guitar riff-age and phrasing of yore.

Man On The Rocks is a music studio album recording by MIKE OLDFIELD (Crossover Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 2014 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Actually, the word, in spite of some of the subject matter, that best describes this album is fun, in that Oldfield, I believe, had a great deal of fun and satisfaction in making it. It is not a "simple" pop album, it is the mature work of a great songwriter which grows on one with each and every listen.

This page is a discography for the musician Mike Oldfield. Although the introduction theme was used in The Exorcist, Tubular Bells (1973) was not a soundtrack album. Oldfield was commissioned to produce the music for NASA's The Space Movie in 1979; no soundtrack album was released at the time. However a DVD and CD soundtrack (though the CD content is just the audio track from the DVD, including voiceovers and sound effects) were issued in October 2015.

I bought this LP last week and I must say the production is superb. That's simply because Mike employed some of the best session musicians in the business. The vocalist is superb and holds the listener to the songs. He reminds me of some 70s classic rock singer. Now the songs, at first some seem simple but after a few listens they seduce you. 'Man on the Rocks' has a great chorus and nice arrangement. The opener 'Sailing' is rock pop perfection. One of my favourite tracks is 'Castaway' as it crawls with 70s style organ and then the drums come in big and wide with a rock solid punch. A very nice surprise in this track that keeps me going back for more. A lot of people will probably say, it's not Mike at his best or he'a better doing instrumentals, well Mike has is best work behind him, that's for sure but he's been making records for over 40 years and this is a record he is making for himself. A straightforward rocker. One thing I did notice is that some of the guitar solos are a bit lacking in emotion, some of the tones are a bit nasal. Some of fluidity is lacking in the playing. What I mean is the solos don't shine like on previous albums. It's like Mike takes a backseat as to not get in the way. He should be shining like Brian May would on his records. We all know Mike is a superb guitarist. For me it's not 'Crises' or 'Discovery' but it's a good all round rock album and a bit of relief from the drab rock of today. One a final note, it's a blessing to be able to buy an actual LP from one of my favourite artists in this day and age of the sterile and boring iPod generation.Overall Rating (I hate these things, it's like Q magazine or some other useless pop mag!) ★★★★!!!
