4 stars Although Jarre sounded excellent with analogic synths, with Zoolook he took a great step forward, not only because of the interesting use of digital synths (nothing to do with a lot of synth-crap of mid 80's), but also because of the excellent work with sampled voices. This CD is quite avant-garde, not only for the technology, also for the ideas, mixing world music voices with modern sounds. There is something in common with Peter Gabriel IV, the textures are very imaginative. Also, the brief side project of Rick Wright, Zee, has some things in common. In some parts, the music could match perfectly with the film Blade Runner, due to the futuristic accent of the whole record. Ethnicolor, by the way, is on of the Top 10 tracks in the whole Jarre discography, really progressive, with almost 12 minutes full of atmosphear, tension , a solid rhythm section and clever effects. A true cosmic voyage.
