4 stars This is not Jean-Michel Jarre's first album but actually the third but the first in this kind of Electronics Music. Groundbreaking (much like Oldfield , Schulze , tangerine dream , Brian Eno) at the time of release with the following Equinoxe (also great) JM J seemed a little late on the ball bur nevertheless broke it big especially with Oxygene 4 hitting the radios worldwide! No doubt his success was helped with the stunning sleeve artwork and the first traces of ecology (one of the lasting heritage of hippydom).

Although the music has not aged that well (well there is definitely more) , JM J's legacy to art will be remembered mostly for his one-of-a-kind concerts , as he conceptualizes " l'Art ephemere" . If his music may not last centuries , but he will be remembered and this album is Historically important.

BTW,JM J is the son of French jazz writer Jarre.
