Prog Reviewer
2 stars A step too far. If JARRE had stopped with his previous album, and moved on directly to the experimental music he favoured in 'Zoolook', his career might have held more interest.

This album, however, exists in a half-way house between the simple melodic instrumentalism of 'Oxygene' and 'Equinoxe', and the sonic vandalism of 'Zoolook.' It suffers in comparison with all three. Adventurous, yes, but not adventurous enough; pretty, yes, but not beautiful. He had to go one way or the other. The first track is excellent, if over-long for the depth of ideas; the rest unmemorable.
