No one here has mentioned the jazz influence (hence the reference to Mood Indigo?). It seems to me that this album (that I know of old), while still having a lot of cheesiness by today's standards, is cooler and more listenable for its Jazz feel in at least a few of the compositions. A good place to start with the Perrey/Kingsley material for anyone into funk or more grown-up electronica.

Wonderful stuff. Like many sad people I was first alerted to his music through the Lucozade advert. This is a wonderful collection of tracks including the aforementioned EVA. All music should be this good.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Classic Jean Jacques Perrey album link to the Future 11 Feb 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have had this album for quite some time and I never get tired of it! I'm actually a Beat Head. However, I find it quite interesting that many of the songs were co-written with Andy Badale (Who turns out to be Angelo Badalamenti of Twin Peaks fame!!) Funny thing is I think "Passport to the Future" is where Andy/Angelo first defines his somber and collected signature style of music that we hear on "TWIN PEAKS" to "The Last Don."
The other important track that links to the future is Jean Jacques Perrey's classic "E.V.A" track which is perhaps the MOST SAMPLED song of the last decade! He wrote that 30 years ago by cutting and splicing magnetic tape (old fashioned sampling) and then you have all these Hip-Hop (House of Pain, Gangstarr, Pharcyde, Lord Finesse, Dj Krush) heads sampling his tracks over and over!
I know I get funny comments when I take this CD to work but it's strangely connected to everything else, much like a GIANT loop! If you know your Hip-Hop history and DON'T have this one...you better check it!
My personal favorite is "Gossipo Perpetuo," it correlates exactly to how I feel life is today.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bloated Masterpiece 8 Aug 2000
By M. Calicoat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Definitely a must-have for the serious vintage electronica fans. I find it interesting to hear the funky psychedelic Moog sounds of the title track, 'E.V.A', and 'Cat In The Night'. The familiar loops of electronic "plops" and "squeaks" are here throughout the disc, like those heard in the earlier Perrey/Kingsley work. The truly bizarre standout is the breakneck electro-voice-opera of 'Gossipo Perpetuo'. Let us keep in mind this is an acquired taste in music. A co-worker of mine gruffly commented, "sounds like the Smurfs on crack!", after hearing track 8 of the disc. The funny thing is, I actually could hear it's similarity to the popular children's cartoon theme song. Take this one to the office at your own risk!

5.0 out of 5 stars Take My Advice 23 Dec 2008
By Ahmed O'Toole - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Take my advice. If you are looking to purchase your first Jean Jacques Perrey CD, go look for the Best Of CD with Perrey and Kingsley. The reason for this is that you will get more value for your money. This is because Moog Indigo is short in length. Most of the 12 songs do not exceed 3 minutes each.

Despite this, every Moog Indigo song is densely created. By this I mean, there is no filler. It is great (at time hilarious) listening from beginning to end. It possesses an authentic 60s sound of experimentation with no programmed drums of today.

My further advice however, is to stay away from Perrey's latest efforts with Dana Countryman. I find Countryman has kind of hijacked Perrey and added his own nerdy goofyness to Perrey's latest CDs. If you google Perrey's website it is the Countryman stuff that is being promoted. The new stuff just sounds too polished, programmed and rip-off-ish.

Moog Indigo is a great CD. With my order I also purchased "The In Sound From Way Out!". This CD was even better! (It also made 4 years prior to Moog Indigo.)

2.0 out of 5 stars dated curiosity 6 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you like the early, shinybubbly moog synth sound, you might like this. Don't expect any masterful compositions, however: tracks like Elephant... and Puppet... trade on the novelty of the sounds rather than any satisfying compositional quality. And the absurdity of Hello Dolly and Bumblebee is good for only a single hearing; even the classic EVA wears out its welcome fairly quickly. If you're really keen on Perrey check out the Best Of available on import from the UK (it also includes a Fatboy Slim remix and dub of EVA).
4.0 out of 5 stars Voices from the past 7 May 2007
By Grant McCahon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Moog Indigo was an early learning school for electronic music. One track, E.V.A. , has been used in several commercials over the years attesting it's staying power. From these beginnings came many offspring and while some of the tracks have dated, it is worth remembering the limited technology available nearly forty years ago when this was first conceived.
