4 stars For my money this is JMJ's crowning glory.While Oxygene and Equinox were 'nice' albums this,his third album, seems to have a lot more momentum and broader ideas.The first part is surely his prog masterwork.The music builds excitingly before giving way to a clever symphonic middle section before returning to the job at hand.Great stuff.Electronic prog at its best.The second part keeps the pace going well,positively brimming with vitality.Part Three begins with the sound of an underground train (used to scare my cat whenever I played this album LOL) and then you get some water like sounds.Very strange abstract peice.Part Four is a more typical JMJ with an extremely effective theme.Part Five is a frivious almost throwaway peice that finishes the album quite nicely.Overall I like this album for its warmth,scope and variety of ideas.
