i had a listen to the new AIR album today (called "talkie walkie").

VERY VERY GOOD.
sounds like it may be the best AIR product to date.

fans of beautiful, pretty, spiritual music should definitly try and get a copy of this.

I will be buying a copy for sure.

10/10

Well I am a HUGE fan and can't wait to give the new album a listen. Glad you like it that much, hopefully I will too!

I was working for vital distribution in Bristol when “Moon safari” came out. The album was so ground breaking and incredibly moving that it became the sound track for living for most of the clubbers in 98. I was not aware there was a new Air album out; I am looking forward to hearing it. Since you like them, maybe check out the works of “John Barry”, one of the duo’s mutual influences. Barry is responsible for the scores to classic spy flicks etc of the late 70’s and even earlier.

Yeah I heard how big it was in the UK but I heard the new album is quite different from "moon safari" because there were too many clone groups i.e. Zero 7, Lemon Jelly, Royskopp etc that copied them

i just had to bump this thread and add my sentiments...

wow. wow. wow. wow. wow.

it's fucking fantastic!!!!


i have been the hugest air fan since moon safari first hit the shelves, i've played that thing till the plastic melted. i have never in my life been so disappointed in a follow up cd, as when "10 000 mhz legend" came out. i was nearly in tears, and ranted for days about how i was going to write them an angry letter and bitch them out for destroying such a perfect balance of musical brilliance that they had mastered on the virgin suicides sdtrk, premiers symptomes, and moon safari.

when this album came out, i was apprehensive, until i saw lost in translation and noticed that air was on the soundtrack. *rejoice!*

i'm just glad that they've gone back to a chilling, loftier vibe than they came up with on legend. the synths and vocals on this album are fucking fantastic. my only complaint would be that they're taking much more of a traditional approach to their "songs" now whereas before, i found their stuff was more like a "piece" rather than a scripted, plotted song. (not that i'm complaining, i'm picking this up for sure. looooove it.)

has anyone heard rumours of a tour? or am i just dreaming... :(

oh yeah- best track by far "run", closely followed by "venus", "surfing on a rock" and "alone in kyoto". okay, basically the whole album.

I hear they did all the vocals themselves. That kinda sucks. I really like the girl's voice who sang You Make It Easy and other tracks.

Got to go pick this up. Make it my 4th Air disc.
kool house? fuckballs, that's going to be laaaaame. i'd pay a small fortune to see them at massey hall or something.

i'll give you my copy of 10 000 mhz legend if you don't already have it Brett. it's a bit scuffed up though. practicing vodoo curses, playing frisbee with it, and sacrificing it to the gods of suck. i guess it paid off though!

oh yeah, has anyone else noticed hints of daft punk a la discovery on here? maybe more like romanthony doped up on morphine and e's.

or maybe that's just all frenchies. :p

Thanks, but I already have it. And Moon Safari and the soundtrack they did for the Virgin Suicides and Premier Symptomes.

Just thought I'd mention that Air will be at the Kool Haus on April 17th. (my birthday)

No idea about tickets yet.

Anyone know when tickets go on sale for this? My friend said the last time Air played at the Kool Hause it was one of the best concerts he had ever been to.

I saw Air play Lee's Palace back in 1997 or '98 for the Moon Safari tour. one of my all time best shows.

I'm definately there for the KH one

and the new album does kick ass, got it last weekend.

so what are they like live?
i wasn't overly fond of their last albums, but this new one has me hooked. i can't imagine them being all that exciting at the koolhaus though - how do they energize things in a live setting?

and anyone who likes air should check telefon tel aviv - their new album is 'a map of what is effortless'.

their production is far better than air's, imo, although on a more lush and cinematic tip.
