    I adore both Oxygens and Equinoxe, as well as a couple of tracks in Magnetic Fields and Rendez-Vous. But I also believe that a creator is a person and they should go on with musical exploration, so being dissapointed with some works is totally incorrect. Creation is a process of searching.

    It doesn't really matter how the actual name is spelled if the artist chooses to stylize it without the hyphen.

    "The official website of the artist spells its name without « - » between Jean and Michel." That is really a load of crap supposed to simplify the writing of his name for the international market!!! Sigh. Is it that difficult to add an "-" between Jean and Michel? It's a hyphenated first name and it is very frequent in France! Please make the effort.

    The first 7" single 'Oxygene, part 4' released under the name Jean Michel Jarre (no hyphen). So i.m.h.o. this should be the right tag
