CD Reviews

As Jarre live albums go this one is pretty good.

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Now Hong Kong is a bit of a half way album. On the one hand the tour that this album draws its music from (Europe in Concert as well as the concert in Hong Kong in March 1994) had some of Jarre's best live music, the resulting album is a bit messy. For a start, the mixing is quite poor, Jarre's guitarist, Patrick Rondat can hardly be heard on some tracks which is unfortunate. The superb "Digisequencer" which is exclusive to this album is a mix of two concert versions and it shows. Other tracks such as "Magnetic Fields 2" have incredible new intros but are spoiled by weak cheesy sounding synth solos. The running time is 70+ minutes and it's a good album but could have easily been a lot better. This 2-disc version (no longer available in Europe) has the full version of Fishing Junks at Sunset (an extra 4 minutes or so). Worth having."
Almost like being there...

"With your eyes closed of course. This recording of that live performance is indeed live! The music is as vivid as ever and so was the audience. Makes you wish you were there."

"One of the best Jarre compilations, this features some of his best tunes (Chronologie 2, 3 and the outstanding Chronologie 4, Oxygene, Equinoxe, Magnetic Fields and so on), as well as completely unique bits and pieces. Jarre's music is always refreshingly orginal, and this CD is both atmospheric and uplifting."
