Jean Michel Jarre - Waiting for Cousteau

Waiting for Cousteau (French title: En Attendant Cousteau) is the seventh overall studio album by Jean Michel Jarre, released on Disques Dreyfus, licensed to Polydor, in 1990. The album was dedicated to Jacques-Yves Cousteau and was released on his 80th birthday 11 June 1990. The album has been acclaimed by critics as one of Jarre's greatest works, due to its extreme stylistic differences from his other albums, especially the title track, which Allmusic describes as "groundbreaking stuff". The album reached Number 9 in the UK charts.

Early promos for the album had the title track named "Cousteau on the Beach", but was renamed later, because Jacques-Yves Cousteau thought beaches are an environmental disaster.


The plugin used relies heavily on HTML5 for mp3 playback and so far I get acceptable results only when using Google Chrome. I hope licensing issues will be solved for Mozilla Firefox someday.
