Reminds me the reverse story. I used the Rolling Stone website once while doing a review of Daft Punk's Discovery, the album got a very average 3/5 stars at the time but eventually pulled out 33rd rank on the top 100 albums of the 2000's list by some kind of hype.
The whole point is "Can art be subject to notations?" against "Is this album more enjoyable than the previous one?"...

Fiona even gave me 30 minutes extra, which was very sweet of her.

JmJ on your China concerts observations " You are the first one I talk to who has mentioned that, but we are in complete agreement."
"You know, thatís a perfect way to put it! You are absolutely right!
"



Elf you are clearly different from other interviewers, more familiar for JmJ.
JmJ' s reactions to you shows this : JmJ appreciates you.
Fiona appreciates you.

This is why I suggested Elf you write Jean Michel instead of Jarre in your writeup (Monsieur Jarre would do as its quite humorous, respectful).
Writing Jarre makes you sound as any other interviewer.


Fascinating

Re CinC Overture : And the sound engineer made a mistake and he played Magnetic Fields 1 at half speed. And I said: ďThatís it,Ē ha ha!

JmJ raction to chiptunes 8bit : " I really adored them "

Zoolook " I went to London and spent two months in Trident studios, and it was a disaster. I finally finished the mixing in my own studio. "

You used the amazing bass player Marcus Miller on Zoolook.
I interviewed him a few years back, and he said the session musicians in New York at the time only referred to you as
ďthe French guy who goes ĎMother fuckeeeeer
Jarre laughs out loud

Rendez-Vous IV...found it in the garbage. It was a demo I had made which I just didnít like.
Rendez-Vous IV has become a running joke within my entourage. I canít even listen to it anymore.



JmJ is being too hard on himself.
Rendezvous Houston concert really required Rend4 to uplift Houston, NASA. Just looking reactions Houston audience.

These days its significance is diminished.
I also hardly listen to it even though as a teen it was my second cover after oxygene4.

Patrick Rondat version Hong Kong in Concert most rocking.
JmJ should made electric guitar lead melody on original then it wouldn't sound as static on the album.
Miami Vice Jan Hammer guitar sound , Top Gun guitar theme springs to mind.

Computer Weekend Ė RŲyksopp told me they love that track.
Ė Really? The mosquito in that song is changing into a dog in the end, itís really crazy, he he.
And the title track has this great Islamic chant. You know, this track used to be played on radio in France, but there were so many right wingers who called and wrote in and complained, that the radio stations chickened out and stopped playing it.


JmJs most diverse album.
JmJ took electronic music to whole new level.
JmJ should continued exploring such rich diversity.
Future Sound of London influenced by Tokyo Kid.

Before the Roland D-50 VST was released, I had no idea about how few D-50 factory presets JMJ used on the album. A lot of the ones in Revolutions come from preset disks - meaning that he, or someone in his team, had to procure a bunch of (possibly obscure) preset diskettes for the album.

Not to mention that even after all these years, not all of them still have been recovered by fans. ;)

Regardless, great interviews! Looking forward to the next part

Ever since seeing the picture of Experimental 2001, I've been really interested in hearing it. I'm curious if they'll ever bother with its release. Sure it'll probably be much like Sessions, which wasn't that great, but had a few great moments (March 23 is such a goshdarn great track). I take it the only chance is when they're either bother with a serious shot at it, or when Jarre passes and they're trying to cash in and release it as a "lost new" album.

Looks like Dreyfus has the say in the release of Experimental 2001.
Great interview again, JMJ is very open and even talks about this E2001 release!

JmJ Fiona candid with you more than with any other interviewer.

You deserve their trust.

When I worked on the Electronica project, and was in the studio with Robert Del Naja from Massive Attack,
I said that my dream would be to make an album that sounded like Massive Attack, but I know that I canít.
And Robert told me that he would love to do an album that sounded like me, but you canít escape who you are.



Young JmJ could easily compose in any electronic music style.
Old JmJ can't.


That's why when young JmJ should released album every year whilst the fountain flows.
Fountain runs dry after a certain age.

Re Teo Tea

JmJ : It was a very dark period for me.


I understand JmJ buried teo tea back of his mind.

They do say " Laughter is the best medicine."

Therefore

JmJ should release a compilation called

Re Teo Tea

Ė If tthere is one album of mine you should avoid, itís this one.



JmJ shouldn't be overly hard on himself.

Aphex Twin been proud of Chatterbox : humorous clever ... very Aphex Twin.

First of all, JMJ didn't composed TEO & TEA. The music of that "album" was just some demo songs from the Roland MC-808 wich was not composed by JMJ. (I can understand why Jarre will forget this fake album)

Freedom day and synthetic man, are very nice tracks and typicaly Jarre from that time.
Last Rumba, a perfect Jarre track.
Calypso, very refreshing bud a real and typicaly Jarre track.
Movement 6 the one and only modern track and one of the best tracks on the album.
