iTunes Review

Space: the final frontier. And also, in Jean Michel Jarre's case, the beginning of a wildly successful career as one of electronic music's best-selling artists. Close your eyes, and the French musician's 1977 debut album doubles as an intergalactic trip, with soaring synthesizer melodies and bubbling arpeggios serving as a kind of imaginary flight simulator.

One of the most amazing pioneers of electronic composition

This is certainly my favorite of Jean-Michel Jarre's extraordinary works. Truly a trail blazer in electronic music, he leads the pack of the genre by providing a strong emotional connection while using synthesizers.
