Not one of his best...

"...however, I understand why some fans rate this album. Personally speaking, I loved Oxygene, Equinoxe and Rendezvous....but never liked this one.This was indeed a bold project for Jarre, and I understand the 'Industrial' theme, but after a dramatic opening with part 1 the whole album seems to get bogged down in musical durge, which as depressing as it is may appeal to the purist.There is no real break from the misery, until you reach London Kid which by no means a classic, brightens things up no end. After that though it's quickly downhill with a rather flat tribute to a lady called Dulcie September (who?) I was present at Jean-Michel's 'Destination Docklands' London Concert in 1988 and it was the most wonderful, moving experience I have ever seen in my life - despite playing some 'Revolutions' tracks. Just goes to show how awesome this guy is.My personal advice is that you should avoid 'Revolutions' if you are a first time buyer, the same as 'Zoolook'. Both are an aquired taste."
Week sounding, but good compositions

"Revolutions like Rendezvous is classical in nature but falls foul of bad execution - poor synth sounds. Even the track with Hank Marvin on guitar is quite a disappointment. The Industrial Revolution track is the best followed by "Revolution, Revolutions" which is the version played live in 1990 at La Defense with the Arabian orchestra not the original version with the Turkish Flute. The new version of the track is better but no the old version is no longer available which is a shame. Tokyo Kid sounds really under-developed and doesn't go anywhere.Don't get me wrong, Revolutions is a good album but lacks direction after the first 5 tracks. It ends on a high with L'emigrant, the usual typical choral Jarre piece."
One of his weaker releases

"I am reviewing the entire album of this name....This disc seems very patched together; not a cohesive piece or album like Zoolook, Rendevous, or Chronologie. If you are new to JMJ, I suggest one of those first, or his earlier Oxegene.A lot of Revolutions sounds cheesy and forced. When I listen to this disc, which is rare, I pick out a few of the better tracks and skip the rest."
