EDITORS’ NOTES

This 1984 album is a bold, almost shocking shift in direction for synthesizer master Jean-Michel Jarre. On Jarre’s first studio collaboration with other musicians, Laurie Anderson’s intimate vocals animate the haunting "Diva," while Marcus Miller’s forceful, funky slap bass pushes things forward on “Ethnicolor.” Jarre’s complex, dizzying latticework of vocal and instrumental samples is as unexpected as it is thrilling. Building on the synth-pop influences of Les Chants Magnétiques, this is the sound of Jarre throwing all the doors wide open.

downright haunting

The feel of this album is really haunting. It's not like anything else I've ever heard from him.
