3 stars Perhaps the best compilation of Jarre available considering it does not only focus on his more commercial stuff but also a couple of those "lesser-known" tracks from him, "Ethnicolor" and "Calypso III". Also, this compilation features three additional studio tracks that are not previously released on a Jarre album before, which makes this a treat for fans, especially. The material here covers his 76-90 phase, however, the album in general seems re-recorded, losing the original tracks soul and mood, Imo. Jarre would experiment with this again on the AERO compilation released in 2004 too, but with overall better and more exiting results than on this one. Still, it's a recommendable starting point for people who won't bother getting only one of his albums, has a slightly lower budget for CD's or aren't too critical. 3/5
