The main problem is that the DVD fails to include all the music from the album (unlike the other two concerts, there are four tracks missing, some of the most beautiful) and is further compromised by one of the most distracting multi-channel mixes I’ve yet to encounter – loud firework whizzes and pops are conveyed by the rear channels during some of the most exquisite musical passages.

MIDI / Ringtones | Videos | The 2003 performance is superior, it’s a fuller, more rounded recording, but there are countless times when today’s surround presentation tries to be a bigger star than the music it is intended to convey, and that, to my mind at least, should never be the case.

Cavemen itself has been turned into "Caveman and Cavewoman", seeing that are now two voices (I must confess I rather preferred the original by miles). It turned out that ‘Caveman’ is identical in terms of loudness and dynamic range across both formats and that ‘Peace’ has a fraction more dynamic range on the latter, but by only 0.5dB, a figure that almost falls into the margin of error bracket but does tend to indicate a small, nay, miniscule advantage for the DVD-Audio release. The thirtieth anniversary of the original presented the opportunity to do so, as did the lapse of a twenty-five year contract that prevented him from re-recording the album. It’s odd and somewhat disconcerting to someone intimately familiar with the original album that they’re presented out of order (the sequence should precede both ‘Caveman’ passages), but one solution is to program them back into the ‘right’ order via your remote control – or an order that is more familiar, should I say.

During ‘The Sailor’s Hornpipe’ Mike’s guitars haphazardly dart from channel to channel, left to right, front to rear, in and out of the centre… argh!

There's an old joke that goes "Why does a dog lick himself? ‘Art In Heaven’ is the post-midnight segment of the concert – watched live on TV around the world by an estimated eight-hundred million viewers – a rousing Oldfield composition (later to surface with a vocal part on ‘Tr3s Luna’ as ‘Thou Art in Heaven’) that concludes with a section of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. [The 2003 bonus DVD edition included tracks mixed in 5.1 sound, as well as "Introduction 2003: 'The Video'."] The idea was for Oldfield to re-record his best known work practically note for note with the benefit of state of the art recording, engineering and mixing technology. Those expecting to hear a young Oldfield introducing each of the parts might feel let down, but be sure to listen out for the abrupt and rather comical ending all the same. Tubular Bells 2003. These sequences also illustrate just how good the multi-channel presentation could have been, the first eight-and-a-half minutes of the second part really are outstanding, as is the ‘Ambient Guitars’ movement, a factor that makes the remainder even more incomprehensible. Perfectionist Mike Oldfield (unhappy, apparently, at the odd bum note on the indubitably classic original) utilizes updated studio techniques to re-record his flagship classical/folk/rock instrumental masterwork in its bar-for-bar entirety. "But it's always the outsider, the black sheep, that becomes the blockbuster." Both fair reasonably well if one is limited to DVD-Video playback, but they do demonstrate a tendency to muddle the most complex passages, especially when Darlow’s aggressive panning results in continuous re-allocation of the available bitpool. Mike Oldfield's groundbreaking album Tubular Bells is arguably the finest conglomeration of off-centered instruments concerted together to form a single unique piece. Looking on the bright side, the DVD-Audio release’s 48kHz PCM is not blighted by the copy protection issues affecting the Compact Disc release (Canadian version aside), which not only prevents the disc from being played on old tin boxes, no matter what they are fitted with, but a good many CD players too!

When so much of this mix could be considered as outstanding, the nuances, soundstage depth and envelopment included, to then burden it with such outdated and totally unnecessary gimmickry is almost beyond comprehension. It represents a fascinating insight into the album and its development; listeners will probably be surprised by a work that is considerably more abstract in parts – bordering on progressive rock in fact – than the ‘original’ 1973 general release version. During the main body of ‘Finalй’, instruments are announced by John Cleese from the front right channel – the exact opposite to the position taken by Viv Stanshall in the quad mix – and as each enters, it drifts from front right to front left and then back towards the centre (the bass guitar ends up over one’s right shoulder). Both the multi-channel and two-channel mixes on the high-resolution disc layer are presented at 48kHz 24-bit, so although they fall significantly short of the potential offered by DVD-Audio, do afford some fidelity advantages over the 44.1kHz Compact Disc release, theoretically at least.

Conversely, those who have expressed a sense of foreboding by the presence of John Cleese as master of ceremonies will be delighted by, what is for him especially, a restrained performance, one that might even be considered an attempt to imitate his late comedic friend Viv Stanshall, who died in a house fire in March 1995. Yes, Tubular Bells 2003 is indeed very true to the original. Here it is. Comparisons between the loss-less DVD-Audio layer, Dolby Digital and DTS, the disc’s two DVD-Video compatible formats, are also likely to be drawn and it’s interesting to note that both lossy systems struggle equally with some parts of the album. In comparison to the 2003 multi-channel mix, the old 1970’s quad version could be considered minimalist, almost to a fault, largely because there just aren’t enough instruments present during many passages to convincingly fill a three-dimensional soundstage. MIKE OLDFIELD Tubular Bells 2003 ratings distribution 3.77 (216 ratings) Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music (30%) Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection (36%) Good, but non-essential (22%) Collectors/fans only (8%) Poor. DTS’ LFE is, on average, almost 3dB quieter than that of Dolby Digital, but this is due to its restricted frequency range (down 80dB at 220Hz) which deviates considerably from the loss-less MLP track, unlike the Dolby Digital alternative that closely mirrors MLP’s frequency response – both MLP and Dolby Digital being down 80dB at 880Hz measured using Blackmann-Harris analysis.

Many of the musicians from the ‘Tubular Bells III’ concert re-appear so once again the disc represents a musical treat, especially during the opening excerpt from ‘Tubular Bells’ and Miriam Stockley’s performance of ‘Moonlight Shadow’. ‘Caveman’ itself comes next, although the two do not run together. The second demo track is the prelude to part two’s vocal section entitled ‘Caveman Lead-in’, this is the movement we now call ‘Bagpipe Guitars’.

Sitemap | As for ‘Tubular Bells’, there is little point in me describing the music in any great detail, everyone will at least be familiar with the opening theme (reused in countless movies and commercials), but if you are one of the sixteen million or so who have a copy of the original, rest assured that ‘Tubular Bells 2003’ is not a poor imitation as is so often the case when classic music is revisited, instead it represents a natural progression from the rough-edged, primarily acoustic and electric guitar-based historical version to a more polished, 21st century electronic-based sound. What Darlow presents us with at times is an expressive mix, one that immerses the listener and where all five main channels are put to good use; neither the centre nor surrounds are shrinking violets in this case.

As one would expect given that an archaeological expedition had to be mounted to recover these tapes, there are occasional glitches; a moment or two of silence here and there, the right channel drops out more than once and there is even the odd pitch error. I bought the DVD/Import version and I'm glad I did. At the end of the sequence, the haunting sounds of the dying acoustic guitar – with added electronic reverb not present on the stereo version – also drift unnecessarily, from hard left to centre. Whatever my thoughts about the multi-channel mix and the technical merits of the disc might be, there is no escaping the fact that ‘Tubular Bells’, be it in 1972/3 or 2003 form, is a work of genius by one of the finest musicians of our time and nothing I write here will change that. While the box set is likely to be of interest to those who have yet to discover the previously released DVDs, and in that case is highly recommended, it will not be to the liking of hardened fans, most of whom would rather see new footage, such as the 1980 Knebworth concert, Blue Peter feature or documentary interviews, rather than re-packaged versions of titles they already own.
