I take back what I said about Jarre's worst album, because I thought the producer slopped together studio tracks and dubbed together audio noise. This is infact not the case - But instead pulled from the master deck of the concert, which explains why there are no firework noises since the mics were aimed at the stage. Sneaky feeling suggests this was pulled from the mixing deck at the television studio since the track lists follow that of the television recording (including... Computer Weekend!? Dreadful song. Would have been better to include say Souveneers of China!) but, unlike the television recording, the microphones recorded the fireworks as well.

It is live - either that or the producers are very clever at editing. Things missing from the studio tracks, such as hi-hat crash symbols, drum beats, different instruments to used in the studio are all different - So it is infact live.

I still stand by my review of Destination Docklands video released in '99, but this serves as a good memorabila album - But sadly, doesnt give the complete picture, like a lot of Jarre albums the majority of it was consigned to the dustbin. This one, sadly was hit the most, because even the songs included were heavily smashed to pieces. It's good if you want to to dub it to the television recording (which other than a few errors, did work effortlessly together) and give high-fidelity sound quality to that aging VHS of yours.

The majority of songs, bar September and Computer Weekend, are actually quite good. Recommended if you have to have this album, but not recommended if you want the Best of Jarre. Consider Jarre live in Hong Kong, etc.

This album was re-released subsequently as Jean Michel Jarre Live. Don't get caught out like I did in buying both!

This live album was originally released in 1989 as 'Jarre Live' which had a different cover and more extensive booklet than this 1997 remastered edition. It features performances from the 'Destination Docklands' London concerts (performed over 2 nights in 1988) that were beset with problems including Newham Council and the good old British weather...

It was one of Jarre's spectacular outdoor concerts that feature a mixture of music, lasers, light effects, fireworks and huge images projected onto buildings for which he is famous for. The London concerts had an audience of over 200,000 people - quite a small number for a full scale outdoor JMJ event of this type.

The theme of the concert was revolutions in history both technological and social, with the music divided up accordingly to represent each period. Unfortunately you don't get any sense of that on this album, which only features around half of the music that was performed. Also, unlike his previous live albums there's very little sense of place and of the event - it could be any Jarre concert - there's nothing particularly distinctive about it. This is because it lacks the snippets of news reports, sounds from the city's life, comments from audience members etc that helped place those other live albums with specific JMJ shows.

That's not to say that the music is bad, it's not although there are no outstanding performances and the 'Industrial Revolutions' track has been quite heavily edited on this recording (it was performed in full at the concert). It's just that there is nothing new offered here, both in terms of new material and new takes on old music - all the tracks sound quite similar to the original studio album versions.

This album is a souvenir of Jean Michel Jarre's rain-hit concert at London's Docklands from 1988. The one thing the album does achieve is to recreate the atmosphere of the drizzly weather. In reality this album sounds just like the studio versions of his tracks set against some crowd noise.
Had he given it a couple of years, his epic "Paris La Defense" concert would have made a far more interesting album, with it's revamped renditions of his music. If you want to check out a "Jarre live" album, I suggest you investigate "Houston-Lyon: Cities In Concert" or "Jarre Hong Kong".

This album doesn't contain bad music, but I fail to see any reason for it to exist. Effectively, you've got the Revolutions album, with the epic Industrial Revolution heavily edited, and a smattering of greatest hits filling the gap.
Even worse, the album is simply the old "Jarre Live" CD, repackaged to make it obvious which concert is being used. Jarre live at least came with a nice thick booklet which contained plenty of photos and drawings, quotes from Jarre about the venue, most of which are cut from this release.
Even worse again, you only have to look at the track lisitng from the concert(s) to see that a HUGE chunk of the original show has been cut. As a full length double CD, this would have served as a great Best-of collection - after all, the tracks we have do sound the same as the studio versions, as a previous reviewer has pointed out). Given some of the classics cut out, what on Earth is the awful Computer Weekend doing here?!
What we're left with is a CD full of good music, but which provides nothing new at all. If you've got Revolutions, there's no reason to buy this, and if you haven't got Revolutions, that should be a much higher priority than this. Make it the last Jarre album you buy for your collection.
