I still consider myself a true fan of Jarre's, but I truly feel he has lost his way since Metamorphoses, and while this is a partial return to form, there is still a considerable distance to cover before Jarre wins my full respect in him as an artist.

I have to say that I find it incredible how many five star ratings there have been for this album - without wanting to sound harsh, that's just blinkered fan-boy optimism in my opinion. It's far too simplistic in its overall tone to be hailed as a work of genius, especially as it is rather lacking when it comes to the quality of compostition that I've come to expect of Jarre - this was my first real gripe with the album, and it still remains the case. He really could have done so much better - as it is the album feels like it was rushed, with very little care involved.

The same was true of 'Geometry Of Love' - a work of staggeringly cold banality. But at least 'Téo & Téa' has a spark of zest about it. But that alone does not a great album make - a truly great Jarre album has heart, and there is precious little of that in evidence here. Also, much of the instrumentation he has used sounds cheap and nasty, with out-of-place samples dotted about unnecessarily. Too many of the songs sound dreadfully sparse from a compositional point of view, something I am not particularly keen on. Minimalism is not what has been employed here, rather a lack of ideas or inspiration. At times the album is just plain ordinary, and calling it 'bland' would be doing it a kindness. But on occasions it does partly redeem itself - the title track and 'Vintage' for me are the two key standouts, and though fairly sparse in structure or depth, they do have a tremendous appeal.

Those of you expecting an album like so-called "classic" Jarre should probably move along, because this most certainly is not it. It is more, however, like 2003's Geometry of Love or the more experimental Sessions 2000. Whether this is a good or bad thing is very much open to interpretation. I happen to (mostly) like it so far.

It certainly isn't an unalloyed triumph, but it's no disaster either. Musos will complain that his use of instrumentation is no longer as imaginative as it was; maybe this is true but perhaps Jarre's own needs have moved on, with contemporary kit giving him the palette he wants.

The major complaints I've seen about this album are that it is too derivative and too dancy. This is partly true, it does have a much more aggressively dancy, clubby feel than other work of his, not that it will make any difference in the UK, which now is not a major market for him any longer really (this album will struggle to do Top 20 business here).

Tracks like Teo & Tea itself and Chatterbox remind me a little of Zoolook-era tracks like Zoolookologie (one of my favourite JMJ pieces) and the 'Moon Machine' B-side. Melancholic Rodeo has vague tinges of things from as far back as Deserted Palace. Even as far back as Equinoxe, dance was firmly at the forefront of JMJ's thinking so this is not as much of a jump as some might think, it is just the environment has changed.

If someone else had released this, how would it have been received I wonder?

Mmmmm, Well I've had this CD since the day it came out and having been a Jarre fan since the mid 80's I have to say there's only a couple of tracks on this latest offering I actually really enjoy. Vintage and the dance long mix of teo and tea. The rest is found somewhat wanting.

Modern Jarre or just bland Jarre? Now I actually like techno but I personally dont think Jarre has to go down this route ! I much more prefer the old skool Jarre sound and If I wanna listen to techno I'll stick on a Scooter or a Sash CD.

I have to say that if you miss the old skool sound of Jarre like myself check out a couple of Jarre sounding ablums such as last year's excellent Enigma A Posteriori CD or Mike Oldfields 1994 gem the songs of distant earth! In my humble opinion these ablums COULD have been Jarre albums of old but he's going through a mid life crisis now and trying too hard in my opinion to stay new and fresh.....but you know what Jean Michel.....IF IT AIN'T BROKE.DON'T FIX IT!

I can see that this album sparks controversy among Jarre fans (with many favourable and many unfavourable reviews). I still think Teo & Tea is a solid piece of work, especially comparing it with some of his recent works (I don't know all of them though, being a fan of his more "vintage sound"). Yes, Teo & Tea is a good album, maybe not his best, maybe not on par with his classic works like Oxygene, Equinoxe or Chronologie, but still this album is very pleasurable to listen to, and that's what is most important in music, right? (Jarre ain't Klaus Schulze anyway) It seriously grows on you...

Teo & Tea is also quite vintage in sound. It is very modern, but not in the style of the recent electro-pop-techno. It is like a perfect bridge between the modern and the retro. Some of the tracks are more dance-oriented (the title track for example), but they are not overdone and they don't make you feel estranged. It's vintage electro-pop with cheesy melodic parts and simple, but appealing structures. My favourite tracks include "Beautiful Agony" (nice beat, great melody, the female moans are, well, a bit out of place, but it still sounds very good!), Vintage (the title says for itself, easily the best track on the album), both parts of "Partners in Crime" and "Touch to Remember". There are, however, very few less successful tracks ("Fresh News" and "Chatterbox"), which are basically just playing with samples.

Apart from that the album is very well produced. It still sounds Jarre-like, more than, say Sessions 2000 or Geometry of Love. It's just your usual, great, enjoyable Jarre album. Not as dance or techno-oriented as many think.

I read somewhere that Jarre considers this album to be a mistake.
