Was a big fan for many years but have waned somewhat for a while now. I thought Metamorphosis was downright strange and what I've heard of Tea and Teo I've not liked much. I think the last palpable thing he did was Waiting For Costeau. (IMO of course).
Zoolook was an amazingly inventive and quite exciting album. It took me a few listens to get used to Revolutions, but it's become one of my favourite JMJ albums (especially Industrial Revolution).
I gather he's now doing some anniversary gigs using a lot of older gear.
i sure must check his first recordings, because i don't know it enough. in the "synth craze" days and style, klaus schulze, stomu yamashita and tangerine dream did much more complete and interesting music, according to my standards of what is pretty, etc.
and to correct myself, i would add that jean michel jarre did the score to the video game "captain blood", and not MAURICE jarre, as i thought...
I agree about Vangelis and Bladerunner I love early Jean Michel Jarre. For me he is up there with Kraftwerk. Mike Oldfield was good too. I grew up in the 70s and 80s.. it was an amazing and inspirational time. The world went space-age crazy. I've never fallen out of love with synths
