The Consequences of Indecisions
Mike Oldfield
(1981)

This is a weird one.
Not musically, as it is quite pleasant.
The album is credited to Mike Oldfield but the music is composed and arranged by Finnish musician Pekka Pohjola.
The album drips of modern jazz but also of art-rock, prog-rock and the incorporation of folk arrangements which is so very Mike Oldfield. The album also has vocals by Sally Oldfield, Mike’s sister, and a great vocalist and musician in her own right.
But back to this album – it still confuses me. It sounds like Oldfield. It is credited to him – but the liner notes in the back say it is Pekka’s work.
It is great music and worth a listen to whatever the case may be.
