An electronic trailblazer goes from strength to strength

This 1978 stunner presents a single electronic suite, overflowing with lush, analog synth lines. Jarre doubles down on the approach of his previous classic, Oxygène: The tunes are more intensely rhythmic, the synth lines even richer and more atmospheric, and the graceful melodic structures recall the symphonic flow of Jarre's famed film-composer father, Maurice. Blending impressionistic atmospheres with pop-savvy hooks and the influence of German electronic music, Equinoxe suggests what might have happened if Kraftwerk had studied Debussy.
