Cool Jarre
Scott B. | Paris, France | 11/07/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For those "fans" that didn't get it, Jarre didn't leave the sequencers and computers running while he went to lunch. The 46 minute piece is the soundtrack to a documentary on Jacques-Yves Cousteau, the famed French marine-biologist. That's why it's ambient and mellow. Make sense now? As for the Calypso parts, they are named after the Cousteau Society's three exploration boats: Calypso, calypso II, and calypso III. That's it. Nonetheless, Jarre's trademark sound is on board with lush pads."
One of his best

"especially the log melody "En attendant Cousteau" will provide you with endless hours of relaxation and posibly meditation too."

"I prefer to review ambient music so let me briefly comment on the first three "Calypso" tracks: FF> FF> FF>. Upon hearing track #4 "En Attendant Cousteau" I felt I was wading in shallow Jarre waters. But halfway through the third playing I realized I was swimming in deep ambient seas. A surreal depth of layered oceanic music. Light euphotic sparkling sounds filter down into aphotic middle pseudo-organic tones. With increasing depth finally abyssopelagic tides rise and counterpart up to balance this hydrospheric masterpiece. Here Jarre has proven he has an ambient soul."
