3 stars This is a review of the original version, 41 minutes.

I still remember the gig, broadcasted on TV in Norway on a time delayed basis. I bought the cassette the day after (and later the CD a couple of years later). I was caught up in the emotions. I was not alone in being caught up in these emotions. The TV broadcast was jaw dropping impressive. It is safe to say that Jarre knows how to make a big splash with his laser shows and music.

On an album..... well, it is still a big splash. Yes, what Jarre does on album and on stage is cheesy as heck. But I do like cheese now and then. The music here is pretty emotional when it takes on the difficult bit of remembering an astronaut which was meant to take part in this live event. He unfortunate perished in the Challenger disaster. A very poignant piece of music and not cheesy at all. The grandiouse pieces here like the closing number Rendez-Vous IV are cheesy though.

This is still a very good live album though despite of the 25 years who has passed since this album was recorded. It also serves as a memento mori from a great gig which I don't many of us who watched it will forget in a hurry. I am glad I dusted of this album and gave it some spins.

3.5 stars
