So you come to my world, I can show you Where they lead to the footprints in the sand On the paths through the valleys and canyons To the veins in your arm, take my hand. I’m the man on the rocks on the island The black pearl, the fool on the hill I’m the gold at the end of the rainbow If I ask you to follow, you will

For his 25th album (and first since 2008), Oldfield employed a band to play shorter and catchier tunes - quite a switch from someone known for longer, more ambient pieces. Luke Spiller of the Struts does his best Mike Peters (of the Alarm) on Sailing as Oldfield manages his magic in and around a wide variety of personal lyrics. Matt Rollings’ organ opens Castaway, on which Oldfield’s lead is simply fantastic, as is Spiller’s dramatic shouts  . Man on the Rocks showcases the singer again as Oldfield lays down some very clean and precise lines behind him. Nuclear is the other side of the coin with Spiller biting the lyric, a big organ swirl and Oldfield delivering a tight lead. William McDowell’s I Give Myself Away ends Man On The Rocks.

Oldfield's 25th career release and his first album in six years, Man On The Rocks is a deeply personal collection of songs tackling themes such as mental health, Oldfield's divorce and Hurricane Irene. Rather than rely on veteran singers as he's done in the past, Oldfield recruited young vocalist Luke Spiller from British band The Struts.
