Jarre, Jean Michel

Pioneer of one of the fastest growing trends in the industry today: electronic music, composer Jean Michel Jarre elevated the genre to new peaks of popularity as early as the late 70’s and 80’s with 60 million albums sold world-wide, to date. Emerging as an innovative international superstar, he creates a new format of out-door concert performance that has contributed to break the ground for a new generation of out-door rock concerts. In 1976, he hits the top of the charts worldwide with breakthrough album Oxygene (Prix de l’Académie Charles Cros in France). This international success in French record history remains unequalled today with sales in the region of 12 million.

Jean Michel Jarre - Chronologie

Artist: Jean Michel Jarre
P: 1993   

Chronologie tells the tale of Earth's history from it's creation to the world of today. Not only is Jarre's mastery of sythesizers incredible (as always), but the different musical styles he uses this time are incredibly varied. From the majestic hymns of the genesis to the rap-like beats of the modern world, Jarre manages to capture each era in one wonderful album.

Jean Michel Jarre - Cities in Concert: Houston-Lyon

Artist: Jean Michel Jarre
P: 1987/ 2004   

This is an outstanding compilation of two mega-concerts made by this french musician and his band. It comprises most of his best earlier songs and includes compositions made exclusively for the Houston City 250th anniversary and the 25th of the NASA.
The Opera of Lyon orchestra sounds powerful and accurate conducted by Jarre himself. And the choir gives that celestial taste to some of the tracks, particularly the brilliant and quasi-Wagnerian Rendez-vous II. Portions of radio and TV media describing the previous moments of the concert were included, just as in ¨The Concerts in China¨ some years before. That seems to be Mr. Jarre's trademark on live recordings. Certainly this audio-only recording do not transmit the heart and soul of what that concerts were -I wish there would be a DVD release of them- but at least we have an extraordinary sample of the splendorous music those nights sounded.

Jean Michel Jarre - Equinoxe

Artist: Jean Michel Jarre
P: 1978/ 2004   
24 Bit Remastered
Equinoxe was released back in 1978 and synth albums from that period often sound outdated because of the progress with computers and synths in general, but Equinoxe will never become outdated. Jarre has a unique eye for detail. The album is complete, meaning that it never loses the atmospheric feel. The music isn't just in the room when you listen to it - it surrounds and embraces the room. Many have tried to recreate the feel of this album and all of them have failed miserably, no one has ever come close - except for Jarres own Oxygene. The "hit" songs of this album would be Equinoxe 4,5 and 7.

Jean Michel Jarre - Geometry of Love

Artist: Jean Michel Jarre
P: 2003 / 2018
This is not a regular new studio album, but a sideproject Jarre composed for the famous VIP Club on Champs Elysees in Paris. The idea was to compose the "soundtrack for a club" and the result is jazzotronica, where free-form jazz, classical, techno, lounge music, ambient and musique concrete blends into an album never before heard from Jean Michel Jarre.

Here's the (quick) track by track breakdown:

Pleasure Principle
A slow orchestral string melody backed by atmospheric sound effects, voice samples and wind-effects. I think this track is very beautiful but could perhaps worked better as a finale. 8/10

Geometry of Love Part 1
Midtempo song centred around a drumpattern and an improvised-style lead, like those Magnetic Fields 1 intros we have heard in recent years. Still a jazzy feeling, and better than part 2, because it doesnt have the cheesy voice arpeggio. Nice synth lead, but the overall impression isnt much. 5/10

Soul Intrusion
Space effects, a hypnotic sequencer pattern and Ron's Piece-ish "star sounds" opens this track, which develops with drums and the GOL trademark piano lead, which is more the improvised style than a traditional JMJ melody. Remove the piano and the track would have been more effective IMO, but to be fair the piano is not used all times, so it doesnt ruin all of the track. 6/10 or 7/10 if the piano was dropped.

Electric Flesh
Another slow piece. The drum pattern has now become familiar and not so refreshing anymore, perhaps more attention to detail could have been used. But the chord progressions are nice, and the piano theme is quite catchy. Some sound effects sound a little out of place. Towards the end the song shift a bit and a new mood is introduced, but that is also where the most interesting sounds are. Spooky voice effects halfway through. 6/10

Skin Paradox
Sound effects build up to a piano theme, with nice synth riffs and space pad s in the background. Again the piano distracts a bit, but the electronic parts are very good. There are even hints to weird musique concrete. 7/10 or 8/10 if the piano was dropped.

Velvet Road
Again space chords and sound effects (including a sexy breathing sound) form the basis for a piano theme, which this time is more melodic than the others. Two thirds through there is a break with a synth theme and cheesy synth-strings that kinda ruins the mood a bit, but then picks up again. Slow to midtempo song. One of my favourite tracks on GOL. 8/10

Near Djaina
Sounds of passing trains and a melancholic piano theme, supported by weird sound effects. Maybe the most traditional jazz / classical music piece on the album. The most minimalistic track on GOL also. Not much to do with Jarre, but a nice piano melody. 6/10

Geometry of Love Part 2
The final track is the most uptempo track on the album and breaks with the jazzy, downtempo style of most of the rest of the album. The voice arpeggio theme is rather cheesy, a bit 80s (and I dont mean that as a compliment). The overall structure of this song is a bit undefined, since it lacks proper chords progressions and is based on rythm and effects, but the Raveolution-lead fits well and is a good link to part 1. 4/10

General comments: The sound design is not far removed from Jarre's Metamorphoses (2000), while the style of music is closer to Sessions 2000 (2002), with some hints to the slower tracks of Metamorphoses. The album could appeal as much to ambient and electrojazz fans as to electronic fans. The attention to innovative sounds is maybe not as great as on Metamorphoses or some older albums, but the production is clean and typical Jarre. Traditional Jarre fans will be surprised again, and maybe annoyed about Jarre's lack of "good old classic stuff", but the album only shows that Jarre cannot be pinned down to one genre.

The album is not an essential purchase for fans of classic EM or old Jarre, but if you like Metamorphoses and dont require many upbeat tracks, this could be for you. I doubt I will play this album alot, but my personal taste aside, for what it was designed for (as loungue music for a club) I guess it works.

2003. Glenn Folkvord.
