Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

Currently, we are experiencing some DNS problems. We hope to fix this as soon as possible.

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Mine's supposed to arrive on 3rd-5th, but I have little faith in that estimate... Leaked digital copy will have to suffice in the meantime ;)

One minute of Oxygene 14

"Oxygene 14: I wanted to start with a hypnotic repetitive beat, with only one or two elements growing constantly until merging into the next part"

I see your point, Jote. 17 is a strong track in the Oxygene style, absolutely. I love JMJ's darker style that punctuated his early albums, which seems to be prevalent in the other excerpts I've heard.

Off course I can, but you need to listen it and then the surprise is bigger. :wink:

I will say only a few things about the album here:

- Don't expect a melodious album , only "Oxygene (Part 17)" has some melody.
- There is a surprise in "Oxygene (Part 20)" around 1min25sec.
- The complete album sound fresh and modern but you realy feel the "Oxygene"-vibe in it.
- A very good album for to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first "Oxygene".
-I feel this album will close the "Oxygene"-time. We will never see another "Oxygene"-album like a "Oxygene 4".

For me the album is a 8/10. :D :wink:

Greetings,


Christophe

Yes, that's what he said in the interview. Still, I think an "Oxygene 21" single for the 50th Anniversary would be dynamite!

Leaking a copy is only possible for people with very complicatied technical skills. You have to rip a CD, encode it and upload it. In a world of smartphone swipers and facebook like-button pushers it is very hard to find a person with both the CD and the aforementioned skills.

If you really find ripping a CD in .mp3 difficult you have some serious problems because most, if not all, audio programs can do so natively.

Sadly, true. Let me know if you find anything :)

"What is an "audio program"? Is that like an app? How do I even connect the CD to my MacBook?"

iTunes has it baked in, considering that's still required for synchronization with the iPhone/iPad (which is sadly still the best selling phone) I doubt anyone is dumb enough to not be able to rip a CD. Hell iTunes automatically asks you what you want to do with it when it you insert it.

You're stilll missing the other 66% - finding out where the files are and uploading them. But let's not discuss this further.
