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.

You are right.

Oxygene 4, Equinoxe 5, Rendzez-Vous 4, Chronologie 4, Oxygene 8, Oxygene 10.
For me those are the only tracks Jarre has written that are both good enough and catchy enough to be big mainstream hits.

Close but not quite: Oxygene 2, Equinoxe 4, Magnetic Fields 2 & 4, Aero, Oxygene 17.
I'm not saying these tracks aren't good enough, but they are not quite radio friendly enough.


I'm still liking Movement 7 the most, I just wish there was more of it.

Equinoxe Infinity is a stunning album... Enough said.
Jarre concerts attended - Destination Docklands 1988 - Paris La Defense 1990 - Europe In Concert 1993 (Manchester & London) - Oxygene Tour 1997 (Birmingham)

"A group of men and woman entered the laboratory one month ago to live in a smell free world. Body odour, sweaty arms pits and smelly feet are to create the energy to survive. A total mystery surrounds this experiment, and it's project code name: B.O and Smell'i "

I've just noticed that Jarre gives a special Thank You to Michael Geiss in the booklet.
Nice of JMJ considering that Geiss went on Jarre's facebook to totally slag off some of the Electronica tracks.

He stated that What You Want sounded nothing like Jarre's work and I can't blame him. That track as a single was terrible and it's by far one the worst on the two, if not the worst.

Which is expected when Jarre tries to emulate the style of other artists...

Ironically though, "What you want" contains a direct quote from previous Jarre's work.

And I still would take it over "Rely on me" any day.

He also said nice things about him when I interviewed Jarre. Have you got a link to Geiss slagging off the tracks? Or a screen capture?

"This broadcast is brought to you by the publisher of Jean-Michel Jarre's new album "Equinoxe Infinity"" - commercial bumper on tvn24, Polish news channel (pardon the quality, I have a vintage TV). I have never seen any JMJ promo here except Electronica tour posters, so that's something.

Awesome result! Almost as good as the first pressing of Equinoxe part 1-8. :wink:

Or at least in the high-res download (which is mp3 in this case, but nevertheless) for crying out loud

Jarre got stuck on the 3rd question of the blind test of the France Info indicators... :mrgreen:
