Arrived in the mail this morning - a new Jean-Michel Jarre album. It's basically a re-recording of his 'greatest hits' (though the selection may not be to everyone's taste, I suspect). The novelty is that you get a CD version in stereo and in the same package a DVD which offers a 5.1 or a DTS 5.1. There's also a video to accompany the music, which is simply a close-up picture of a woman's eyes (strange I think is the best way of describing it). The re-recordings aren't totally faithful to the originals, but are close enough, I guess. The 5.1 mix makes good use of all of the speakers and is pretty enjoyable, though not particularly dynamic in its range. If you like J-M J's music, probably worthwhile looking out for this album, and likewise if you want a cheap way of comparing the merits of CD and stereo with DVD and surround on the same pieces of music.
