    I'm genuinely scared.

    YT video sounds compressed as hell and not that much inspired.
    The melody reminds me of something.

    I agree. Who knows, maybe the rest of the tracks will get better. And it will be released on vinyl…

    Electronica part 1 was just bearable on CD. But I bought Electronica part 2 and Oxygène 3 on vinyl. The first one sounds nice, but the latter sounds quite dull.

    Watchers sounds like Vangelis to me.



    With EQUINOXE INFINITY, a brand new EQUINOXE album is released for the 40th anniversary of the original. In 1978, Jean-Michel Jarre composed and produced an album that reflected the music of our future and thus revolutionized electronic music history. As a supporting element on EQUINOXE it was about the Watchers (the observers), who were seen on the original album cover in infinite numbers. Who are these watchers? Are you watching us? Are you a friend or an enemy? In 1987, in an emerging era of technology and innovation, these Watchers were a symbol of machines watching us, an early vision of what the future would bring us. At EQUINOXE INFINITY, Jean-Michel Jarre continues this idea. The new work will be released with two covers. One version embodies a future in which man lives in harmony with nature. The other version shows the destruction that machines and humans could bring across the planet. For the well-known as innovator and pioneer Jarre, the topic of Artificial Intelligence and Man vs Machine is the most important and explosive topic for the future of humanity. For his thoughts, Jarre was honored in 2017 with the Standing Hawkins Medal of Science. EQUINOX INFINITY is the soundtrack for this two-sided vision of the future. The cover can not be selected when ordering. The selection is made at the request of the artist randomly.

    Oxygene 3 was fantastic. One of my fave albums from anyone in a long time. I am looking forward to this.

    Funny part is that as far as I know he never mentioned “the watchers” before. Equinoxe was about “the sound of water”, after Oxygène being about the sound of air.

    Hope he thinks about a 5.1 mix so we might have a version without ridiculous amounts of compression. Still, very interested - preview sounds like something from the new Blade Runner movie and all the graphics look great. Pretty exciting news

    It appears (if correct) to be 2xcd and 2xLp Box Set with a digital download card.

    CD1 Equinoxe
    CD2 Equinoxe Infinity
    Lp1 Equinoxe
    Lp2 Equinoxe Infinity

    If correct;
    Disc 3 in the listing image would be side2 of the Equinoxe Lp
    Disc 6 in the listing image would be side2 of Equinoxe Infinty Lp

    You've every reason to be scared, the last reissue campaign was heavily compressed. It's a shame, but something we have to deal with these days.

    Zoolook went from DR12 to DR7. Equinox DR10 to DR8. Oxygene DR12 to DR7.

    Says it all really. Zoolook was particularly poor.
