Editors’ Notes Space: the final frontier. And also, in Jean Michel Jarre's case, the beginning of a wildly successful career as one of electronic music's best-selling artists. Close your eyes, and the French musician's 1977 debut album doubles as an intergalactic trip, with soaring synthesizer melodies and bubbling arpeggios serving as a kind of imaginary flight simulator. Lush and melodramatic, Oxygène set the standard for electronic prog, paving the way for Tiësto's world-conquering trance and Hudson Mohawke's giddy maximalism.
