Electronica review in UAE website

Jean-Michel Jarre could easily lay claim to a host of titles: the father of EDM, the godfather of ambient – he might even be the original superstar DJ.Without his synthesisers blazing a trail through the 1970s and 1980s, there might never have been dance music as we know it today. Without Jarre performing to more than three million people in Russia in the 1990s, there … Continue reading Electronica review in UAE website

”Electronica 1: a time machine” review in Irish daily star

ELECTRONIC music was always supposed to be about looking to the future, but French pioneer Jean Michel Jarre worries that we’re getting blinded by misty-eyed nostalgia. Chatting about his new album Electronica, Jarre concedes that he carries 40 years of baggage — he’s a founding father of synth music and pop culture shorthand for electronic maximalism. His 19th studio album is an attempt to reconcile … Continue reading ”Electronica 1: a time machine” review in Irish daily star

Release Music Magazine Review of Electronica volume 1

The Electronica project is very ambitious and has has taken Jean-Michel many many years to complete, and we will not hear the entire finished result until next year when ”Electronica 2” comes out. The idea was to collaborate with the best of both today’s and yesterday’s electronic musicians, but instead of sending files over the internet to one another, Jean-Michel would actually visit each and … Continue reading Release Music Magazine Review of Electronica volume 1

Electronica volume 1 review by Mimo website

Following in the footsteps of Giorgio Moroder’s star-studded comeback, fellow electro wizard Jean Michel Jarre has also assembled an impressive line-up for his first new studio effort in eight years, Electronica 1: The Time Machine. But whereas Moroder’s unexpected return largely relied upon today’s synth-pop sirens, Jarre’s features a far more eclectic list of guest artists that have inspired him over the past four decades, … Continue reading Electronica volume 1 review by Mimo website

Electronica volume 1 reviewed by Louder than war

8.5 / 10 Electronica pioneer release his nineteenth album. Louder Than War’s Paul Scott-Bates reviews. There can be few people over the age of twenty that have never heard at least part of a Jean-Michel Jarre track at some time or another. More than likely Oxygene Part IV (from his 1976 D.I.Y. album, Oxygene) or Eqiunoxe Part 5 (from Equinoxe) have featured at some point. Selling … Continue reading Electronica volume 1 reviewed by Louder than war

Prog archive’s review of Electronica Volume 1

With the exception of this album, I haven’t yet listened to the albums Jarre released after Metamorphoses, partly because of his change in sound and partly because of the rather lackluster reviews they have garnered here on PA. I am familiar with all his previous studio albums, however. Jarre’s output has tended toward pop-style electronica, as evidenced by the fact that he’s listed under Prog … Continue reading Prog archive’s review of Electronica Volume 1

Positive Review of Electronica volume 1 by Philly.com

Jean-Michel Jarre Electronica 1: The Time Machine (Ultra Music ***1/2) At 65, Jean-Michel Jarre is a peculiar legend. He’s a godfather of the populist melodic-electronic movement (1977’s dreamy album Oxygène established his place), but one whose hypnotic rhythms and funky grooves weren’t quite dancey enough to give him Kraftwerk/Giorgio Moroder-level fame. Francophile synth pop, breathy sampled vocals – he did all this practically before Daft … Continue reading Positive Review of Electronica volume 1 by Philly.com
