Format: Audio CD
Now Hong Kong is a bit of a half way album. On the one hand the tour that this album draws its music from (Europe in Concert as well as the concert in Hong Kong in March 1994) had some of Jarre's best live music, the resulting album is a bit messy.
For a start, the mixing is quite poor, Jarre's guitarist, Patrick Rondat can hardly be heard on some tracks which is unfortunate. The superb "Digisequencer" which is exclusive to this album is a mix of two concert versions and it shows. Other tracks such as "Magnetic Fields 2" have incredible new intros but are spoiled by weak cheesy sounding synth solos. The running time is 70+ minutes and it's a good album but could have easily been a lot better.
This 2-disc version (no longer available in Europe) has the full version of Fishing Junks at Sunset (an extra 4 minutes or so). Worth having.

One of the best Jarre compilations, this features some of his best tunes (Chronologie 2, 3 and the outstanding Chronologie 4, Oxygene, Equinoxe, Magnetic Fields and so on), as well as completely unique bits and pieces. Jarre's music is always refreshingly orginal, and this CD is both atmospheric and uplifting.

With your eyes closed of course. This recording of that live performance is indeed live! The music is as vivid as ever and so was the audience. Makes you wish you were there.

This is one of the finest New Age/Ambient artists in the business. Most of the cuts on this are from Chronologie, which makes me want to buy the album. Sound quality is fantastic, and the entire album is very listenable.

Jean Michel Jarre is Jean Michel Jarre, when he is on he can make the hair on the back of your neck stand up and "HONG KONG"
is right on.
I do not think that the version of his signature piece "rendez-vous 4" is the best version he has done, I don't care for the lead in, but it is still good.
BUT "chronologie 4" is incredible and more than makes up for any minor lapses, this is another hair on the back of your neck standup pieces.
All in all I think "HONG KONG" is one of the best Jarre as come up with and that is saying something.
