Album of the Month March 2021: Oxygène by Jean-Michel Jarre


I’m back. As you may know, February was The Future Bites month. This album grew on me over the course of the month. Wilson’s production is, of course, excellent. My opinion regarding the album’s standout songs has not changed much: Man of the People is by far my favourite song in this album. King Ghost is up there. The others are OK too. Here are my quick notes:

Anyway, by the end of February, I started to get bored and I was ready to get started on something else. Perhaps this is natural after listening to the album repeatedly over the course of the month.

Anyway, I am ready to jump into March’s Album of the Month. I covered brand-new stuff in January and February. In March, I’m going to take a trip back to 1977 with Oxygène by Jean-Michel Jarre. I used to listen to these tunes a lot as a child before I got into guitars and stuff. Anyway, I came across Oxygène—Live in Your Living Room on YouTube and was inspired to buy the original album. The CD arrived a couple of days ago and I was itching to listen to it and didn’t want to wait until March! I slapped it on my phone and listened to the whole thing all the way through on my daily walk.
