Oxygene, the origin of electronic music.

"I received my first copy of Oxygene on a cassette tape in 1981 at the age of 11. It was like nothing else out there, and I loved it. It influenced my choice of music from that moment on. Today I still listen to electronic music, Dance, House and Trance our my favorites. I bought this copy, not only because it was on CD, but because I heard one of the top DJ's in the world use one of the tracks during a recent set................It never gets old. Get it, Enjoy it."
The crowning of classic electronic music

"For me Oxygene is the crowning of "classic" electronic. The first time I listened to it I was so absorbed that my rational mind didn't even attempt to make a critical judgment of it, it was just lost. The second time the only thing I thought was "this must have taken the same effort of a symphony to create", and I wasn't even taking into account that it came out in a year that looks like the stone age from here, in term of the technology available to do electronic music.
This music speaks of things that exist in a domain of their own, too important and too frivolous to be expressed in any other way that with music. Like a battle of gods, a love story between ghosts, a joke that the wind tells to the trees.
