5.0 out of 5 stars Is this the future?, 22 Oct 2001
This review is from: Metamorphoses (Audio CD)
Having read the mixed reviews below, and having listened to this album many times since its release, I feel obliged to comment. Like all the negative reviewers (most who appear to be ardent Jarre fans), upon first listening, I found myself asking if Jean Michel had finally sold out. An album of single-length tracks...with lyrics!?! Certainly a far cry from the genius length and subtle nuances of Waiting for Cousteau. Upon further listening, however, and when combining the songs with the visual splendour that was 'The Twelve Dreams of the Sun' concert, the album does reveal itself for what it is: another work of musical art from the master himself. Like all Jarre's albums, there are peaks and troughs, but (in my opinion), the peaks are never as high as the beauty of 'Miss Moon' or the kicking sounds of 'Hey Gargarin' and 'Give Me A Sign'. And is 'Silhouettes' not Jarre at his composing peak? Personally, I think you could place this track in any of his best existing albums, and it would only enhance the experience. If you are a fan of any of Jarre's work, I would urge you to buy this album. As already mentioned, by another reviewer, force yourself to listen with trepadation, and it will only make the ride that much sweeter. If this is the future of Jean Michel, I welcome it with open arms.
