Voyager (Mike Oldfield album). Voyager is the 17th music album by Mike Oldfield, released in 1996 by Warner Music UK. It is a Celtic-themed album with new compositions intertwined with traditional pieces. The album was the last in the original three album deal which Oldfield had signed with Warner after leaving Virgin, starting with Tubular Bells II. Oldfield would stay with Warner until 2003, where his final album for the label was Tubular Bells 2003.
Mike Oldfield has always been a bit of a musical dilettante, and Voyager is no exception. If he didn't come by it honestly, one might almost suspect this album's Celtic influences derived from that music's being in vogue when this disc was recorded. There are certainly some enjoyable melodies herein, but nothing that rises above the ordinary.
