One of the pioneers of electronic music, Jean Michel Jarre has arguably done more to popularize the use of synthesizers than any other artist. Liberating synthesized sound from the esoteric preoccupations of academic composers, Jarre was among the first to explore the instrument's melodic and rhythmic possibilities--key innovations that went on to become significant influences for ambient electronica, synth pop, and techno. ...See Full Description

||The Quintessential Album for Electronic Music|
A true pioneer in electronic music. Jarre, Vangelis, Walter Carlos and Tomita started a musical reveolution that echoes even in today's music. You can hear arpeggios in all trance, house and breaks even today. Jarre, is the godfather of electronic textures and atmospheres. This Texan met him a Plaza de la Concorde, Paris in 1979 the day before his first concert. I was 18. One of the nicest and most genuine personalities you'd ever want to meet. He has been a musical influence my entire life and has shaped how I compose music to this day. Now sell me your Elka Synthex Jean-Michel! :)

Its hard to believe that this CD is nearly 30 years old!!!!!!. It still sounds fresh. No wonder bands like Air and Daft Punk are around with a fellow French influence like JMJ to inspire them. A classic, get it !!!!!

||Influential Is An Understatement !!|
The first time I heard this album as a young boy in the early 70s it changed my whole view of music. This is the ultimate instrumental album of it's time. There is no other album that comes close in it's genre. A true ground breaking artistic statement. A pioneer ahead of his time.

I only bought the abum for one song, Oxygene, Pt. 4. As a bonus I found the track Oxygene, Pt. 2 to be very good as well. CD Universe's service is 2nd to none, the CDs were safely here in NZ in no time at all! Cheers.
