"Five Miles out" represents the typical format of Mike's albums in the 80's: long track, here "Taurus 2", and an assortment of shorter musical pieces. (Mike has started this concept with "Platinum" and has kept it for almost twelve years.) Being a strongly conceptual album, "Five Miles out" was inspired with Mike's adventure, when a plane, piloted by him, was caught in a heavy storm. Needles to say, this album wouldn't gain its high reputation (it was his most selling album after the debut "Tubular Bells") without act of Mike's new discovery which he found in Maggie Reilly, female singer.
