AllMusic Review by

After a tumultuous parting from his first label, Virgin, famed British new age artist/composer Mike Oldfield signed an extensive deal with Warner Bros which would carry him into the next millennium. His first act at Warner was to deliver 1992's Tubular Bells II, the instrumental sequel to his groundbreaking 1973 debut. Over the coming decade, he would release seven more albums with the label ranging in style from Celtic to worldbeat to dance-oriented music. The Studio Albums 1992-2003 includes all eight of his Warner releases in one affordable box set. In addition to Tubular Bells II, this set includes The Songs of Distant Earth (1994), Voyager (1996), Tubular Bells III (1998), Guitars (1999), Millennium Bell (1999), Tr3s Lunas (2002), and his 2003 re-recording of the original Tubular Bells album.
