5 stars This album represents one of my first CD purchases. I still love it today with it's magical themes and dreamy moods. The exiting and spacey feeling over the album gives an impression of a mood not reached by many other artists at that time. It's a really wonderful album musically and Part 1 and Part 5 are both among my favorite Jarre tracks, and the improvement here compared to his first release, "Deserted Palace", is jarringly huge, though here he uses way more instruments and the album is extremely more professionally performed. Jean Michel Jarre is one of my absolute favourite artists, and I Have all of his albums from 1976-2004. All of them are very good but this one is one of his very best. Too bad it's only 39:45 min, cause it should have been longer. This is not very progressive sometimes, but tracks like Part 1 and 5 are both highlights for me, and definitely progressive. Part 4 is the weakest track here (and I KNOW you have heard that one before), but it's still an excellent track. 5/5.
Bj-1 | 5/5 |
