It seems interesting, I couldn't understand a word, but I could make out someone saying that the best things he wrote were, paradoxically, the lyrics for Christophe.

It seems they are very negative?

The fat guy (who wrote pretty bad lyrics himself) prays Jarre for his lyrics for Christophe, and says the rest of his music is sh**. That Jarre (more than) inspired himself of Pink Floyd and Pierre Henry, but basically has no talent as a composer.

The other negative aspects are on Jarre's youthfull aspect and that his music has been following mainstream all the time. They say that Jarre talks too much of himself as a "pioneer" on synths...

One of the guys explains that Zoolookologie is an idiot tune with Marimbas... :punch:

That sums up the negative side of the whole crap. :x

One other guy (with the glasses) explains Jarre is a real musician with a solid musical background, and that his music inspire young artists in France (Sebastien Tellier above others). And that is right.

The first paragraph in that review sums up how the author contradicts himself later on

"80 million records sold"

So an artist who has no fans, who is out-dated, how can this artist possibly sell "80 million records"
Jarre concerts attended - Destination Docklands 1988 - Paris La Defense 1990 - Europe In Concert 1993 (Manchester & London) - Oxygene Tour 1997 (Birmingham)

Visually, the concert was perfect.
By cons, music side, we were served soup for decibel noise doped!! My (younger) spent the next 3 / 4 of the concert with his hands over his ears I saw a boy of 10-12 years out of the room to the verge of tears in her ears. My wife and I own nationals are disgusted it was so loud that all sounds saturated our ears. It honteux.Et yet I'm a fan of JMJ since my childhood. I'm 35 years old, an amateur musician since the age of 7 years, I used to play and listen to music at high volume, but this was unbearable!! I made myself a joy to see him in concert (it was my first time) and what a disappointment! And I'll spare you the improvisations ... zero ... and endless.

I remain a fan, but am very very disappointed. I rather go see a concert of heavy metal: I thought about taking my ear plugs (my ears still whistling and we are 24/03 15:15) "


... :? :? I don't want to be deaf after the concert.
It is weird that they didn't take the earplugs with them. It is normal that the volume is high, but dunno if it was even higher at this time. For me, I will always take earplugs with me, knowing that I'm going to the concert.

Seems a no win situation. Music is too loud, spoils the over-all enjoyment of the concert. Wearing ear plugs because the music is too loud again spoils the over-all enjoyment of the concert.

Why doesn't Jarre's mom come along to the concerts. Atleast if he's playing the music too loud, his mom can shout. . . .

"Jean Michel!, turn that music down. I've told you before. You have it up too loud. What will the neighbours think."

That's what moms do.

Most venues/Countries have restrictions/Guide lines on safe Noise Pressure levels,Jarre and crew would have to abide by those,so dependant on where your seated to the PA would be a personal preference on how much noise you can withstand safely and comfortably.....It also depends on the venue size and capacity also,smaller venues will always be louder by comparison due to reverberation and Human saturation/Reflection of soundwaves

your never going to withstand as much pressure on the ears if you sit nearer to the speakers than someone at the rear of the venue?thats why I never ever sit at the front of any concert(and from a visual restrictive aspect too)

on a more personal level,I have always worn earplugs at any concert I have attended,it has never been any less enjoyable,(infact probably more so as I don't end up with ringing in the ears afterwards),the ones I have are purpose fit to my ears so after a while you don't realise your wearing them they are that snug and comfy,I protect my hearing mainly as its paramount to my ability to do my Job,plus I don't want to prematurly damage my hearing,if anything using ear protection(especially purpose ones)you hear far more detailing in the music as your not being blasted or overpowered by prominent Frequencies in hi and lo ranges

this Guy who complained about the level of db in the Venue,if he was as much a respected musician himself like he claims,then I would have thought using ear protection in such a loud Environment would be paramount to his enjoyment of music,if not sit at home and listen to the CD at a more comfortablel level you can control.Its like someone complaining about the amount of smoke in a room full of people Smoking :?:
