I like listening to the "full Oxygene" 1 through to 20, and it always strikes me how different 7-13 sounds compared to those that preceded it and then came later. It's def the odd one out.
Recording Oxy 7-13 on Roland Vs840 portable mixer recorder has something to do with how it sounds.
JmJ really likes performing Oxy8 closeup camera electronica tour inviting audience into his kitchen.
Oxy 12 JmJ enjoys going hard on this in previous concerts.
Oxy13 JmJs emotive peace Gdansk Solidarnosc, choirs emotions showing on their faces Moscow.
As an album theres nothing brilliant about Oxy7-13 in terms of ideas compositions.
Several electronic albums from other artists from the era are brilliant.
Synthesis, layering sounds on Oxy7-13 is Brilliant Far Ahead of many electronic albums of the era.
Seemingly effortless for JmJ.
Oxy7 cringy lead sound to open the album
Even now cringy. I can't listen to it.
From 8min till end should opened the album.
Compositionally it's just lazy although not as lazy as MagField1 part 1 sequence and pads.
Oxy8 yep like it.
Oxy9 closest to spirit of Oxy1 my favourite on the album.
Oxy10 pass it's just terrible.
Oxy11 ireally interesting lead melody one of my faves from JmJ, accompaniment mashup of rave hardcore Goa trance.
Oxy12 most brilliant on the album.
Should have changed shrill sound of repetitive opening sequence it's too harsh, as well as made the sequence far more varied.
Oxy13 ear piercing shrill cabasa shaker percussion should been left out. Just keep the bass drum heart beat and tom rolls.
Re Oxy16 probably the most brilliant track on the album marred by drums percussion.
What is it with JmJ adding unnecessary drums percussion
he did it on Oxy2 Equi 4 5 7.
Albums JmJ got drums percussion just about right
CinC, Zoolook, Revolutions, WFC, Metamorphoses, GOL, Sessions 2K, Alive in Bourges, Tea Tree (teo tea), Electronica 1&2.
Oxy7-13 album art Superb Michel Granger.
Oxy14-20 really poor judgment on album art. Michel Granger recent art far better.
