Allmusic.com gave Discovery a 3 1/2 star review:

With 1984’s Discovery, Mike Oldfield seems to be back on track, utilizing the vocal power of Maggie Reilly and the drum playing of Simon Phillips to create some rather appealing selections. “The Lake” is a simply gorgeous instrumental inspired by Switzerland’s Lake Geneva, the location in which the album was recorded, while “To France” is a powerful pop/rock tune based on the life of Mary, Queen of Scots. …Discovery peaked at number 15 in the U.K., and even though it didn’t garner much attention elsewhere, it serves as one of Mike Oldfield’s most entertaining releases from the decade.
