Special deluxe two disc (CD + PAL/Region 2-5 DVD) packaging of the French Electronic music pioneer's extravagant 2005 live album Aero plus the 19 track Live In Peking DVD. On both formats, Jarre revisits some of his most popular tracks including tracks from the Equinoxe, Oxygene and Zoolook albums (amongst others). Warner. 2006.
Jarre strikes again!

"This album really only has 3 new tracks on it (Aero, Aerology, and Aerozone) all of which are variations of other stuff he did previously. The rest of the tracks are updated versions of previous material beef-up and used in the Aero concert tours. But they're still great with a face lift. In fact, some are better!. The variations are - well - variate enough that they ended up being their own pieces in their own right in his body of work. This album has JMJ stamped all over it - from opening note to ending pad. Personally, the DVD visuals did nothing for me, but that's okay because I was in it for the DTS 5.1 experience which made me shiver. Yeah, it's really THAT good. Sound in 3D! Be advised that the DVD is (unlike what Amazon posted) a Region 2/PAL disc (NOT Region 0/NTSC)."

"Yes I am a good fan of Jean Michel Jarre.I recently ordered this disc back in Dec.When I recieved it like other reviews I read The DVD is region 2.PAL How sad for me.But even though I support the dts playback Ill have to wait till I purchase a HD player maybe european type model that will open the menu and I can enjoy the dvd.To stay on topic here The music is atmosphericlly ,spacy really wonderful. I love the open intro.of Oxygene.How it moves to the next tracks evenly. I love the piece of the coal miners when you hear the part of the people talking when the miners are going off to work. The whole cd I must say tells a story.Theres a real story behind this music.No matter how electronic sounding it is. The musician blends alot of styles and rhythems to his playing. I highly recomend this music. So for now Ill enjoy the super cd sound of it on my region 1 NTSE player."
