4.0 out of 5 stars Treads old ground, but it's very pleasant..., 1 Aug. 2006
By 
This review is from: Oxygene 7-13 (Audio CD)
I remember reading comments about whether Tangerine Dream should try to re-capture the wondrous early "Virgin" years (1973 - 80) and recall a comment about "Wheelchair Rubycon"...

Well, JMJ has just gone and done that, more or less, by recreating as best as possible, the vibes of his first, charming LP "Oxygene". This release shows the two edged sword this can be.

In no way does this CD replace, or even really add to, the magic of the (now) thirty year old original. Even the sound lacks the warm, "analogue" richness of the original.

Later on, it sounds like he's re-creating Tangerine Dream instead (Pt11 could almost have been lifted fron "Encore", Pt12 from "Stratosfear")...

An enjoyable listen, but it shows the danger of trying to please fans (and record companies ?) by re-treading old ground.

If you have the original (and Equinox), then you'll love this...
