Oxygene - Jean Michel Jarre

Attempts to be "futuristic" often end up dated - look at any SF movie from the 50s or 70s - so I wasn't sure how well Jean-Michel (or Jean Michel, sans hyphen as he seems to be known these days) Jarre's seminal 1976 electronic music album Oxygene would stand up decades after I first listened to it. Pretty well actually. Even the best known tracks, the ethereally moody "Oxygene (Part II)" used in the movie Gallipoli and the ethereally jaunty "Oxygene (Part IV)", released as a single, don't feel anachronistic. Well, except for the laser blasts maybe.
