Not the first time JMJ has used this - didn't the Apollo 440 remix of Rendez-Vous 4 for the 1998 World Cup reference La Marseillaise as the intro?

Yes. I got it at the end of the day by DHL.

Yes. I once mixed that with Love Love Love to emulate the Beatles' All You Need Is Love.

Too short but more musical with more differences with each piece that follows.
This makes it more enjoyable to listen to than the Vol. 10 (or 9), too repetitive.
The shorter silences separating each piece contribute strongly to this.

Extended pieces or remixes to arrive at a 60 min album. would have been cool.
Maybe in a next volume !!!

My excuse was that I was tired.

no worry...
tomorrow a new day

I find it just a pity that the album ends by the repetition of this track.
It spoils a bit.

Can't open a champagne bottle yet, as apparently FNAC no longer uses DHL for deliveries to my country anymore and they have now switched to Chronopost/DPD. My copy has been stuck in a French DPD sorting facility since Wednesday afternoon. Unfortunately DPD is one of the least reliable parcel services (at least here) :( I sincerely hope it won't get lost. I genuinely hate when something fails when the proverbial progress bar is at 90+%.

And to think I got Radiophonie vol. 10 from FNAC within 24 hours via DHL...

Does it contain the previous album? Vol.10 included Vol.9 as the first disc.

Is it multiple variations on the same tune, as previously?

And in the words of the late great Douglas Adams, “Share And Enjoy”

It is more diverse than the previous ones. The Polygone tracks are totally different than the Hexagone ones. The few Hexagone tracks on this are variations of course, but the 6 minute track (Hexagone 694?) is rather nice.

Very similar to Oxygene 14 (esp. near end of said track, during the strings build-up, not to mention the bass, also the way Hexagone 694 ends is very similar, with the arps) or Stephane Gervais's Triptych 3
