'Five Miles Out' sees Mike take a diversion away from large-scale symphonic compositions towards the sound for which he became renowned throughout the '80s - rock and pop electronica.

Though some consider Mike Oldfield, who hit pay dirt with his 1973 recording 'Tubular Bells', to be a one-hit wonder, the artist continued to release intriguing albums all through the '80s, '90s, and 2000s. 1982's 'Five Miles Out' was one of Oldfield's best recordings from that decade, and found the composer getting more adventurous with his long pieces and even delving a bit into pop structure with the song "Family Man" (which later became a radio hit for Hall & Oates). The opener, 'Taurus II', is a 25-minute odyssey heavy on guitar and thudding drums that demonstrates Oldfield's penchant for the epic sweep, likewise the trancey and evocative 'Orabidoo'. And guests like vocalist Maggie Reilly and drummer Carl Palmer (of Emerson, Lake, & Palmer) help to further expand the stylistic range of the album.
