This CD made quite an impression on me as a kid in 1976, and I understand that it impressed the entire planet too. No one has changed the scene of electronic music like Jean-Michel Jarre, and no one can challence him and win. Unfortunately his last CD's have been disappointing, but fortunately for him his older works still makes him the king of electronic music. I own a giant collection of electronic music but it does just not compare to his early works. This records is composed much like classical music by famous composers like Mozart, Bach etc. etc. but of course just not the same kind of music. But he pays just as much attention to every details as the them. A genious!
