Elements – The Best of Mike Oldfield is a compilation album by Mike Oldfield, released in 1993 by Virgin Records. It was later released with the original Tubular Bells, as a double CD album. Other related releases include a 4-CD box set and a video album.

Elements' is a good compilation, no doubt, but it's pretty much an impossible task to try to summarize the music of Mike Oldfield on one disc. Even at the time of its release (1993), Oldfield's repertoire was so vast and constantly expanding that there's no way one album can cover every basis. With that in mind, 'Elements' does a good job of covering most of the more radio-friendly songs of Oldfield's back-catalogue.

Elements represents the many sides of Mike Oldfield, and is a short but interesting journey through some of this t's best efforts. Sixteen of his albums are spoken for, with the same number of tracks making up this assortment. The collection opens up with The Exorcist's theme, which peaked at number seven on Billboard's Top 40, and is Oldfield's claim to fame.

Total Time: 63:06 This album covers the best of Mike's material released up to 1992. A 4-CD version of Elements was released soon after, which concentrated on Mike's career at Virgin, from 1973-91.

Bitrate (quality): 192256320.

Oldfield has released more than 20 albums with the most recent being a rock album titled Man on the Rocks, released in 2014. Mike Oldfield's parents are Raymond Oldfield, a general practitioner, and Maureen Liston, an Irish nurse. His sister Sally and brother Terry are also successful musicians and have appeared on several of Mike's albums. He also had a younger brother, David, who had Down's syndrome and died in infancy. Journey Into Space released: 2012. Two Sides: The Very Best of Mike Oldfield released: 2012. Incantations released: 2011. Je pense à toi (Henrik Schwarz remix), Tubular bells (Âme re-interpretation) released: 2010. Hergest Ridge released: 2010. The Collection released: 2009. Tubular Bells II, Tubular Bells III released: 2008.

Overall, "Elements" is a good display of what this interesting and sometimes experimental musician has produced over the years, but not a real "album" in itself. The best of Mike Oldfield, is a great milestone in his career from early 70 th& to the early 90 th&.In other words this CD is a great introduction to his many great compositions. Track 1 Tubular Bells (opning theme) has a very hypnotic theme, horrific and makes you shiver( it was also used as the theme song in Friedkin& horror film classic(The Exorsist).
