4 stars Jarre's first international album, "Oxygene", was a worldwide success, selling several millions of copies to this date. Jarre soon became one of the pioneers of electronica music and released several musically excellent albums after "Oxygene". This album was it's follow-up, seven studio albums and 20 years after, and can also be concidered as a modern reincarnation of "Oxygene" since the music often displays several similiarities between these two albums. While not as musically interesting as "Oxygene" this one still stands as one of my absolute favorites by him and undoubtly his best work after "Chronologie" (released in 1993). The production is clear and warm and the songs are often dominated by Jarre's usualy melody patterns, without sounding clichèd at all. It's a great album overall and will always be one of my top releases by him. 4.5/5
Bj-1 | 4/5 |
