5 stars Wow, what an album. For a while I fell asleep every night listening to this album. There is something here beyond normal music- there's immense feeling, not really positive, not really negative. The best I can describe it is; it is the music of humanity, pure humanity- what we all are inside, without technology, jobs, houses, and society to constrain us, it is the essence of who we are. It's like happy people running around in flowers, with sun shining and green grass, unpolluted by the things we have made, the towering smokestacks pouring contaminants into our air, the black streets that cut the land into little pieces- it is nature, it is people, it is emotion. As I said before, it's beyond words- you need to hear it to understand. From a technical standpoint, it's very well-made, well-played, and original electronica made after Jarre's extremely successful Oxygene album- as evidenced by the track titles, it's not eight songs, it's eight parts of a larger entity, eight distinct yet related pieces combined into one magnificent whole that is the Equinoxe album. I don't like calling things essential, but I think that everyone should hear this at some point. A masterpiece of modern music.
