Info for Revolutions

As the title indicates, this disc has to do with the French Revolution as well as Jarre’s homage to the Bicentennial. He also used the occasion to denounce an ongoing injustice in South Africa, apartheid. On March 29, 1988, Dulcie September, a representative of the ANC, was savagely assassinated. Jarre dedicated the song Septembre to her, with its African flavour, especially in the chorus sections.

On other tracks there were Turkish flutes and Arab percussion instruments, and this album would be played at the famous Docklands concert in London.

„While it can be easy to dislike and dismiss some cookie-cutter electronic music, the challenge lies in finding reasons to listen to it again. Such is the case with Revolutions by Jean Michel Jarre. One reviewer wrote, simply, '(This) is not revolutionary.' That is true; Jarre breaks no new ground with the release of this album. He does, however, continue to create original music in his own style. He is often imitated and that is the sincerest form of flattery. This album features ten short pieces (five minutes and 22 seconds is the longest) of pop influenced e-music. This disc neither challenges nor offends the listener. It has its moments but it neither soars nor plunges. Of course, die-hard Jarre fans will love this disc. Fans of Synergy, Char-El, Klaus Schulze, and Ashra will like it.“ (Jim Brenholts, AMG)
