Comments

A very strange album. Comprised of one track, exactly (or as near as) 60 minutes long, Amarok is more like one of Mike's 70s albums than his 80s output. Long and rambling, employing just about every instrument under the sun, abruptly changing direction at the drop of a hat, bizarre vocals, sudden random orchestral stings, and even a Margaret Thatcher impression, Amarok feels like the musical equivalent of a rollercoaster ride. Insane, but cool.

It's also widely regarded by fans as the sequel to the similarly brilliant Ommadawn, even down to the image of Mike looking through a raindrop-covered window.
