this in my view started the hole thing about "Chill out" music or meditation music. Certainly a journey and a very different album from the early works. Rare on vinyl as this has not yet been re-pressed. I think this record will become very collectible in the years to come for this very reason

Burned-out Jarre turning knobs on his pile of synths to produce toe-curlingly cheesy melodies inducing uncontrollable vomiting in any decent electronica fan. Stop at Zoolook in his body of work and thank me later.

Some say that this album is not JMJ's best work. It is different from his early work. I agree with that. But Calypso 2 is the best track on this. THat bass and laserharp tunes just make the song.

Waiting for Cousteau is THE track that i play the most when i work or just relax.

A friend of mine has a rare Release of this cd album, he bought it in a shop in Australia when it hit the market in 1990 and on the disc label it says "Cousteau on the Beach" instead of "waiting for Cousteau". anyone else ever seen this release?
It is definately not a bootleg!
