4 stars This is quite different to many earlier Jarre albums.Here he dispenses with the heavy multi layered sythns and seems to go for a more simpler ensemble of instruments.This allows him to put more emphasis on the composition rather than just creating interesting sounds and effects as before.Some of this is an absolute triumph.Second Rendez-Vous is absolutely splendid stuff which has an almost Vangelis like quality in the use of choir.My favourite though is 'Rons Peice'.I wouldn't often use the adjective 'beautifull' but here it is entirely appropriate.Overall it is uneven and the length of 35 minutes is a bit 'sad' but the inspired bits lift this to a 4 star album.
