I have the original 1988 CD of Revolutions and was hoping that the remastered version brought some life back into the recording. I was astonished at how fresh and clean the recording started compared to the original. I was loving my new purchase until the track 'Revolution' started playing, what the hell have they done to it?!?! One of the best tracks has been completely ruined and sounds terrible (Those people who have listened to the original will know what I am talking about). Its a real shame as a decent JMJ album has just been pushed into the 'OK' category for me. If you can, try and find the 1988 original version of the CD, it may not sound as clean but at least you'll appreciate original version of the track which 'was' really good.

"Revolutions" is Jean Michel Jarre's album release from 1988 that coincided with his rain-hit "Destination Docklands" concert in London. The album has some very good tracks - the superb title track (for later releases it's the superior 1990 Paris La Defense version retitled "Revolution, Revolutions") and the very moody "Industrial Revolution" which features some nice Depeche Mode-esque type sounds. Also worthy of mention is "Computer Weekend" which almost seems like a continuation of "Oxygene Part 6", and "the Emigrant" which makes a stirring uplifting end to the album.
Sadly there are some rather cheesy tracks on the album too. "London Kid" featuring Hank Marvin of the Shadows on lead guitar is rather apalling, and "September" is decidedly cringeworthy.
Having said that, the moments of Jarre genius shine through, and for that it's well worth getting the album. Not a classic Jarre album, but still very good.

As it is written in title I expected 1988 edition of Revolutions instead of that I got new remastered edition with title track in new edition from 1994. During research I found that 1988 edition was deleted due to copyright issues and the one I got is new properly edited one without troublesome content. Anyway the title is misleading and it certainly is not a 1988 edition. That's why I don't like it. 1988 edition of album is marvelous dough.

Wanted this for years. I was not disappointed (except for maybe the track with Hank Marvin on it... uggh!). I remember the title track from his Destination Docklands concert in the pouring rain. Brilliant!

Of all his work during the late 80s, Revolutions is his most brilliant (in my opinion of course). Rendezvous comes a close second, but the sheer diversity and quality that shines from each of the album's ten tracks, just pips his earlier masterpiece to the post. The enigmatic Frenchman, who so often shys away from a public life, reveals, during the 45 minutes, a side to his personality that all fans of his will enjoy. It's a side that didn't suface again until Chronologie, a side that we'd all like to see a bit more of. To describe any of his albums is like trying to describe a colour, or an emotion, in that it is near impossible. The pleasure I get from listning to this particular album is greater than the feelings for any of his other work.

Revolutions could of been better. You always get the impression with this work, that Jarre was well on the way to writing a full symphony with the Industrial revolution movements, and then got fed up and did something else instead. This is painfully obvious at times. What relation do Computer weekend,London Kid, and September,have with each other in terms of sound, and to the Industrial revolution movements?. Nothing. Exactly. You strongly get the impression that the later were just stuck on as filler because Jarre gave up on what could of been a wonderful new Album with the first movements. It's a crying shame,because the first parts of this album are superb. We had the depth and moodiness, and then all of a sudden we're into cheesy pop of Computer Weekend and la la la la African village chorals. I dont know what happened to Jarre halfway through this album. Do you?. Yes, i know it's all about "Revolutions" etc. But each piece is so seperate from the last, that i agree with the reviewer who said that the CD is disjointed and makes no sense. Each track does'nt work well together, even though they're all interesting. The Arab (or Turkish on this version) chant on Revolutions is a great piece on it's own, but does'nt feel like it belong anywhere in particular. Nice try Jean Michel. Not your best.

A good CD and up to his usual standard which I have now played several times.

Jean Micheal Jarre NEVER disappoints!
