4.0 out of 5 stars Aero Review - technically excellent but lacks innovation, 11 Oct 2004
This review is from: Aero (Audio CD)
I have been a JMJ fan for many years, first introduced to the composer way in the early 80's back when my good friend Ben Sparrow's older brother had a vinyl LP of Oxygene crackling away on a delapidated record player....then, it's erie mixture of electronic synth noises and calmic effect contrasted well with the jumping needle and dark rural Herefordshire nights.
This album would not evoke such a similar mood, even though Equinox, Magnetic Fields and Oxygene tracks are included - re-mastering and digitising into 5.1 surround sound is fun but it misses that 'original Jarre magic'. There are too few new tracks - Aero and Aerology are superb (pity these are limited to two tracks) and although I do love to listen to the old Jarre tracks, I am desperate for him to now bring on a completely new album. I know that times have moved on, and I would not wish Jarre to 'mimic' albums gone by, but he would do well to re-view his music that made him unique and bring his dedicated fan base something different and less like the many amibient/chill out bands around. Do something different Jarre! This album is a fantastic compilation but that is all. I am waiting for Jarre to produce music like he used to - music that taps into your mood and penetrates deep into the listeners mind. I am waiting.....(like that fantastic 46 min track on 'Waiting for Cousteu' album!)
