3.0 out of 5 stars so-so underwater action, 5 April 2003
This review is from: Aquanox (Video Game)
Aquanox is a game splitted between phenomenal graphics and a very short, uninspiring story.
The 3D graphics are certainly the best seen in an underwater game for a very long time. They feature support for DirectX8/8.1 Pixel Shaders, so GeForce3/GeForce4 Ti, Radeon 8500 and up, Matrox Parhelia and SiS Xabre carts can get supreme water effects.
But the story lacks the "slagkraft" of the original Archimedian Dynasty. The twist/plot is too open, and it's way too short, can be accomplished in a matter of few days.
It's worth a try for the low price Amazon has it for, but don't expect too much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Supreme art, 5 April 2003
This review is from: Rendezvous (Audio CD)
Rendez-vous is an amazing work of art. Starting off with the "Ouverture", Premier Rendez-vous (First Rendez-vous),
Moving on to Second Rendez-vous, which is a marvellous pseudo-classic tune with synthesized horns, choir and a cutting lead synth.
After that, Third Rendez-vous which is a very melancholic, requiem-sortof tune, with the most beautiful synthesized choir and chords ever heard, in my opinion.
Then comes Fourth Rendez-vous, a classic everyone *must* have heard. It starts off with a bass pulse, then procedes into a technopop beat, which is very kicking, promising and a superb melody. It has a gothic kind-of-chorus where it changes character for a short time - from a overly happy track to a gothic sort of melody/chord progression.
Fifth Rendez-vous is a sheer work of art. Starting off with a 3/4th rhytm, it creates the most amazing soundscapes, coming in full 3 parts of a classic suite (which 4th Rendez-vous can be called the Ouverture to)
Sixth Rendez-vous is a mellow, sad tune which is about the tragic death of Ron McNair and the rest of the challenger crew. Ron McNair played Saxophone, and the saxophone plays a sad solo in the song.
All in all, it's an amazing album, DEFINATELY recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Jarre album, 14 Oct. 2002
This review is from: Chronologie (Audio CD)
One of the best of his albums. Starting with the cold, melodious Part 1, kicking you into techno-inspired gothic progressions in Part 2, Relaxing to nice choir and string music in Part 3. Part 4 is downright danceable! Part 5 is the weak point of the CD IMO. Part 6 is Philip Glass meets trance music in a very interesting and positive way. Part 7 is a little bit weak, but Part 8 is the powerful final with great electronic themes and hip-hop beats. This was the first (and last) album where Jarre used the Roland TR909 drum synthesizer (the always used techno/trance/dance drum synth) but it is great!
