Very, very, very disappointing....Not much you can and should say about this album. Jarre has become more of a follower than a searcher...


January 22, 2018
Horrible. Kitschy almost all along. There's no a single newby, nothing interesting solution, nor, a single good sound. Disappointing as during the last decade. IMHO the best track is that with Tangerine D. and interestingly with P Townshend. Jarre is used to be a pioneer but always had a twisted sense to the kitsch. Now, it turned out in full-lenght.

Pas trés inspirés tous trés vite ennuyant, suite peut-être ?

90s-2000s cover aesthetics, wtf face on the photo, pseudo-ambitious exceedingly vast work that needs "parts", historical wink like "I'm a vet, I can sum electronic music history up and show you all the way for tomorrow", loads of duo-mutual-shared-composition-work-featuring-and-arm-long-credits, and just plain flat epic-ish awfully mastered tracks that still damn feature 2010-style vocoded voices and annoying self-claimed emotional high-pitched male singing. DAMN. Disappointing again. JM, where art thou?

Big names - generic outcome. IMO the only interesting [or at least worth second listening/coming back to] collabs here are with AIR, Fuck Buttons and 3D [that track should be listed as 3D feat. JMJ lol] - those tracks stand out. And Moby - to some extent, if you are into his despair-tronica. The Vince Clarke collab is [claps??] disappointing. The rest is some bland mix of late-JMJ generic dance stuff, nothing mind-blowing [with a nicey piano track at the end]. The album in general sounds like an attempt at sounding epic. It has more of historical value as a gathering of well-known or established music producers. P.S. And I will never accept the fact that my childhood electronic hero, once a pioneer and one of electronica gods, JMJ, one day started doing 4/4 dancey stuff. It's not ground-breaking anymore, it's just going with the mainstream flow. Sad.

Great idea and musicians but the mastering... No life in it at all...
