- 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.

Oh well, gonna listen to it on Spotify tomorrow. Woo.
Yup same here. Hard to see the point of the pre-ordering procedure these days other then giving the label a hint of selling statistics.

Can anybody confirm whether the continuous mix is any different from the individual tracks? I'm guessing it's the same, but I can't listen to it until my CD set arrives today. It doesn't seem to be available on Apple Music.

My review of the album -> http://www.musikknyheter.no/anmeldelser ... Jarre.html

It's in Norwegian, but I guess you can google translate it.

It's a bit similar to the one I wrote here a few days ago, but in a less nerdy way, so that the average reader can keep up.

Yep, it is mostly larger pictures of the synthesizers used on all of the Oxygene albums along with some other things such as the studio lighting used and the images of the master tapes of the three albums.

Won't say anything else though as don't want to spoilt it for everyone!!

Well I've played the cont. mix a couple of times on Amazon Music (no CD yet), threw good headphones, and I'm still undecided about the album. It is very minimalistic (even more so than the original) and quite ambient (which is not my favourite version of Jarre, I would have preferred a couple of more melodic upbeat tracks as in Oxy 7-13). But it's a nice enough sounding album, maybe about the same standard as Chronologie, but less grandiose sounding. I will give more thoughts when I have played it more.

Just went to one of the last REAL recordstores in the second biggest city of Denmark.
Nerd recordstores are the only options left for music like Jarre.
Even standard Electronic stores have stopped selling records and cds.

Ah but anyway I got what I came for the LP and the CD.
I thought about the trilogy box, but that is a lot of Money to spend just before Christmas.
And then Again I mostly want it for the daylight version artwork of Oxygene 7-13/Oxygene 2.

That updated blue artwork, does that really appear as a seperate piece in the trilogy box?

I would really like to see some images of it :wink:

And a nice day to all of you :D

Not that chart positions matter that much, but I noticed that the album is very low at Amazon UK and France. I'm sure the Electronica albums were a lot higher at this point. Is it already performing poorly or have Amazon just not got their charts updated as yet, and it's too early to tell how it is performing?

I habe no idea about what these charts can be used for. I have never discovered new music from charts. It must be the reason why I am drawn by the more underground genres.
If you make a simple analyzis of Oxygene 3 and compare the pop level to The Beatles pr Maroon 5, you probably have the answer. Electronica was full of wizards from the popscene.
Unless you wanna compare the average allround popularity of music, you should necer concern about charts.

Trust and make your own conclusions and opinions instead.

Btw. A suprise for me was that the standard Oxygene 3 vinyl is clear transparent.
I thought that was for the trilogy only.

Can't stand it: Pre-ordering an album to get it as one of the last persons on earth. That's why I download new albums in Flac 24bits/48Khz as soon as they come out (last night at 01:15). So I have the Oxygene Trilogy downloaded now. Already placed on my HDAudio walkman and home stereo (HAP-S1). When I find the CD later in a store 'in the wild' I buy the album as well, just to keep the Jarre collection complete.

And what a joy the new album is: Oxygene 14 is a very fine start of the album. O15 and 16 are fine as well. O17 I skip (listened to that song way to many time), 18 is a bit slow, but then Oxygene 19! Wow, even a couple of chords of "Why this and why that". And as icing on the cake Oxygene 20 with a briliant volume build-up.
