With Chronologie Jarre continues his typical style of making music, more coherent and moody, based on open compositions flowing seamlessly into each other, in the vein of Oxygene or Equinoxe (rather than Zoolook for example).
This time the subject matter of the album is time. Jarre composed Chronologie most probably being inspired by Stephen Hawkins' `A Brief History of Time", which even receives its credits in the booklet. The somber beginning of part 1 makes you think of the dawn of time, some prehistoric moment of history, when God created the heaven and the Earth, and where it all began. The music then surges enthusiastically as if things were falling into place and the creation of the world started to take its final, recognizable shape. With each following part a new universe is discovered. The up-tempo pseudo-classical Part 2 flows into a new-agey and dreamy part 3. This is where the first part of the LP stops.
Part 4 is a dream pop/dance classic, with its catchy melody and rich textures. (I bet there would be no Robert Miles without Jarre!) Part 5 recalls the melody of the previous part with a definitely new age ambient touch, before reaching its own climax. The music meanders for a while before abruptly crashing into the thumping bass line of part 6. This piece does not have a typical melodic hook, but with the throbbing bass line and the infectious dance beat it is certainly one of the stand-out tracks.Read more ›
The album in tone feels like a return to the more classically-styled work of his earlier career, particularly Equinoxe, to which I think it bears a big resemblance. This is no bad thing as Equinoxe is one of his very best piece of work. The similarity is especially noticeable in parts 4-6, which, like Equinoxe are very dance-oriented. It is influenced heavily by the notion of time, from watches and clocks to the work of Stephen Hawking. In many ways it's a n optimistic piece of work, ranging from the slightly portentous keyboard washes of part 1 and its echoes of the swirling particle clouds and the vastness of the early universe, through part 2 and it's classical, almost early industrial bombast, counterpointing some of the same ideas that appeared on the Revolutions album. Part 3 is mournful and keening, together with that Rondat guitar. Part 4 is the joyous lead track, with the album's leit motif plastered all over it, before leading into the industrial, consumerist drone of the factory production line in part 5. Part 6 is another highlight, with the dance beat gradually fading into a lone accordion line, before melting into the buzzing of bees and the peace of part 7. The album closes with the foot-samping celebration of part 8, redolent of dub reggae in some ways, biro finally doing out to the background hum and heartbeat that completes the album's cycle.
This remaster is not a bad effort.Read more ›
