Man on the Rocks is the twenty-fifth studio album by British musician Mike Oldfield, released on 3 March 2014 on the Virgin EMI label. The album is Oldfield's second full album of exclusively songs with no long or instrumental pieces, the first being 1989's Earth Moving. Man on the Rocks was produced by Stephen Lipson together with Oldfield.

Six years after the classical Music of the Spheres, Mike Oldfield returns to his version of rock. Man on the Rocks is a slick production that recalls the AOR sounds of the late '70s and early '80s. He plays many instruments here but concentrates mainly on guitar. Among his collaborators are bassist Leland Sklar, keyboardist Matt Rollings, drummer John Robinson, guitarist Michael Thompson, and the Struts' vocalist Luke Spiller

Man On The Rocks was produced by Stephen Lipson together with Oldfield. The album features bassist Leland Sklar, drummer John Robinson, keyboardist Matt Rollings, guitarist Michael Thompson and singer Luke Spiller together with Oldfield himself on guitar. The backing tracks were recorded during June 2013 in Studio D of Village Studios, Los Angeles with Lipson. Oldfield has also recorded part of the album in his home studio in the Bahamas. On MAN ON THE ROCKS Luke Spiller is the only lead singer and even though this album varies stylistically from pop to adult alternative to rock there is a sameness from beginning to end that Oldfield's vocal albums have rarely (if ever) possessed. Some have stated that this has the feel of a Spiller solo album. I tend to agree as there is very little of the patented Oldfield guitar riff-age and phrasing of yore.

Mike Oldfield Talks About Man On The Rocks. Being included in the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony really did me some good, because it validated Tubular Bells as an iconic album that stands the test of time, says its creator Mike Oldfield. The logical thing for me to have done would have been to make another Tubular Bells-style album to try and cash in, but I’m not that kind of person and the new album Man On The Rocks is all live, back-to-basics rock. Oldfield began playing solo guitar in folk clubs as a prodigiously talented 12-year-old. Mike Oldfield – Man On The Rocks: Track-By-Track. You get this lovely feeling as you go out into the open sea – freedom!

Produced by Stephen Lipson & Mike Oldfield. Album Man on the Rocks. Watching from the edge of the circus For the games to begin Gladiators draw their swords Form their ranks for armageddon. I'm nuclear I'm wild I'm breaking up inside A heart of broken glass Defiled Deep inside The abandoned child.
