4 stars When this was released in 1976 you could say this was a sensation. Synthesizers were hardly known then and certainly the way it was played by this man was really new. I was intrigued and had to buy it. What I found most enjoyable was the stereo effects that were very obvious in some of the tracks (mainly 2 and 5). This album is so original and the compositions are actually so great that I even consider 5 stars because of the masterpiece status. But I think I will be exaggerating too much then. Oxygene is at least a milestone in music history in general, it was really revolutionary in 1976. So because of that and because it's so special (far better than what he has ever done since) I think I will give it 4, well deserved. Unbelievable that this artist is sometimes called the predecessor of the recent dance DJ's. I think that's an insult for JMJ.
