JEAN MICHEL JARRE - the essential jean michel jarre ( 1983 )

Hello and welcome back .. Sometimes, for me, music is more than just music, its a journey for the mind and this album takes me there. I was first hooked on this type of music when my dad brought this album in 1985  and the incredible sounds that one man ( Jean Michel Jarre ) can make on a synthesizer. The amount of albums this artist has is mind boggling and just goes to show how creative he is. The main stand out track on this album would have to be "Oxygene part 2" and was used in the war movie "Gallipoli" which stared Mel Gibson. This song is a visual treat for your ears as bullets fly past and the pulsating synths replicate footsteps running for your life. Other songs that stand out for me are "Equinox part 5", "Magnetic fields part 2", "Orient Express" and "Fishing junks at sunset". For me a 10/10 album.
