electronica-997x561

Less than six months after the release of Jean Michel Jarre’s Electronica 1 comes Electronica 2, the second album to feature Jarre collaborating with a mix of dance legends and music icons. My review of Electronica 1 was, for the most part, positive (and deservedly so) with my only real gripe being the exclusion of some artists it would have been interesting to hear collaborations with. Has Jarre included these artists as per my request? Is another album of collaborations too much? Should there be an Electronica 3 album? First and foremost, no, he hasn’t collaborated with Daft Punk or Aphex Twin, but, there is an equally impressive set of artists on this album to rival Electronica 1. Pet Shop Boys, Yello, The Orb, Primal Scream and Gary Numan rub shoulders with Cyndi Lauper, Jeff Mills and Hans Zimmer (amongst others) on an album which totals 18 songs and close to 75 minutes worth of music. As with Electronica 1, you are definitely getting your moneys worth of content and artist. Read more.
