I remember they played "Zoolook" as an outro of the swedish science tv-program for children, "HjÀrnkontoret". One of my favorite programs as a child. :mrgreen:

I think Zoolook is a weird album, but definatly in a good way. My favorites are Zoolook and Blah Blah Cafe

And is there any difference of the original Zoolook and the remix? I haven't even heard the original so I don't know :mrgreen:

The tracks 'Zoolook' and 'Zoolookologie' are slightly different between the releases. I personally prefer the originals. Check out the Sony 1997 remastered CD which reinstated the originals, and added a few seconds to 'Ethnicolor'.

I found verry little difference when listening to the original version of Zoolook.
Actually I didn't heard it until the 3th time :P
The remixed version uses a little extra reverb or something like that, and at the final 30 sec. there is an effect missing.

The track Zoolookologie has more difference that is easily hearable.
some effects are missing, others mixed different. and especially from 1:51 to 2:25 and again 3:03 to the end sound quite unfinished.

So, the remixed versions are indeed better than the originals, if you have that 1984 or 1997 version you'd better change :mrgreen:

Please can you describe which part is added or prolonged in Ethnicolor? Do you mean Eth I or Eth. II? I have both versions released by Polydor.

'Ethnicolor' is usually just 'Ethnicolor I'.

EDIT: I might have misunderstood your question about parts :P

I mean Ethnicolor I :D

If you listen carefully, you will hear an extra few seconds from 6'46" to 6'53".
The main note sustains longer, and there's an extra bell toll :D

I'd been listening to it most days since it's release, so when the remaster come out, I could instantly hear the difference. :D

This was the third Jarre CD I got in late 1988, after Revolutions and Equinoxe. I hadn't heard anything about Zoolook, but was kind of expecting something different, and it was. I had the remixed re-release one, which had Zoolookologie remix as track 3 and Zoolook remix as track 5. I kept listening to Zoolookologie as I thought it really funny, upbeat and delightful, and is still in my top 5 favourite Jarre tracks.

I got the original 1984 release on CD when it was remastered during the 90's. Found the original version of Zoolook to be similar but "flatter" sounding and not as good, and the "tsut" voices to be missing during the start of the choruses to Zoolookologie to be annoying. Also Ethnicolor was longer, it drags on a bit too long in my opinion as the slow section finishes before the rhythm section kicks in.

I also think there may be differences in the length of Blah Blah Cafe, although this may be with Images or Music For Supermarkets.

But for me, Zoolook is an album of 3 outstanding tracks (Ethnicolor I, Zoolookologie and Zoolook), the rest I really have to be in the mood for! But not taking anything away, it is highly innovative and different and really proves Jarre's creative genius.

PS - also noticed the 1985 remixed CD names the track "Woolloomooloo" rather than "Wooloomooloo"!

PPS - As some may know I'm a big PLD fan, and loved the Ethnicolor/Zoolookologie live performance. One of the most amazing live moments I've witnessed, especially when Zoolookologie kicked in!

PPPS - Most times when I listen to Zoolook, I start to think about Americans walking around in shorts eating burgers in some downtown park!!!
