Oxygene 3 was very good, looking forward to this one!

It is ok... I really miss the Oxygene sound. This is very different from Oxygene 1-13. I really wonder why he called the CD Oxygene.

Bad luck...

I gave it a first spin and it sounded like a collection of leftovers from the Revolutions - Cousteau era. It has absolutely nothing to do with Equinoxe. Not with the compositional style of that album, nor with overall mood of Equinoxe.

I can't say I was disappointed, as my expectations for new Jarre music aren't that high anymore. But I have no clue why he released this, and why he thought of abusing the Equinoxe title.

I like it. And every spin the album grows in me.

Maybe the issue here (not only here, but everywhere in music... and in life) is expectations. Big expectations. But I don't care about the title, just about the music. I don't look at the title, I don't mind if it's Equinoxe or Ommadawn or Albedo 0.39 or Timewind.

For me it sounds fresh. Just my two cents.

Each and every listener has (and should have, in fact) a different oppinion.

All in all, it's music Cool

Thanks, that was interesting - particularly about his creative process with the artwork first, then the music, for Equinox infinity. I wonder if any other artists - here included - so something like this?

I concur Daniel.

Listened to it for the first time this evening (well actually 3 times thus far....)

Nice, and unlike Oxygene 3,
I had no problem with the sound/mastering.

Jarre's put a good album out here,
a little on the short side perhaps, but for me certainly a keeper.... Wink

I am sure it will appeal to a lot of people.

I don't think it's too bad, nowhere near as good as Oxygene 3, but still a rather enjoyable album, very nice on headphones.

I loved it. I only have 2 caveats :

1) In track 1, there is a sound that is too close to noise for my tastes

2) Track 8 is Coachella Opening. So, I bought it twice : in PlanetJarre and in Equinoxe Infinity. If I could have known that it would be recycled in Equinoxe Infinity, I wouldn't have bought the single track in PlanetJarre in the first place (and for the hefty price 2€49 !).

Otherwise, I think Equinoxe Infinity is a real delight to listen to. I never got bored once and I love all the tracks.
