Biography

Le Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip To The Moon) is a classic silent film by revered French director Georges Méliès. Released in 1902, this legendary 16-minute film is widely considered one of the most important works in film history, and the very first to use science fiction as its theme, incorporating special effects that were very state-of-the-art at the turn of the 19th century. ...

Editorial Reviews

2009 release from the French Electronic duo. With such an impressive body of work behind them, the band is now free to write and record as the inspiration takes them and able to draw on their very own musical lexicon honed over 12 years of active duty and an enviable collection of vintage synthesizers, guitars, and assorted gadgets that grace Atlas, their very own state-of-the-art recording studio nestled in the leafy backstreets of northern Paris. Love 2 is the group's fifth studio album and, whilst being instantly recognisable as an Air record, sees the band exploring some new territories with the help of of L.A.-based drummer/percussionist Joey Waronker.

4.0 out of 5 stars AIR return to a familiar landscape - with a twist... October 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD
AIR return with Love 2 - their best work, in my opinion, since 1998's 'Moon Safari'. The French duo have taken a more 'experimental' approach to this album - often delving amongst walls-of-sound (Do The Joy) and synth-driven scopes (Be a Bee). Alternatively, the album offers perhaps AIR's more accessible pop-tune to date with Sing Sang Sung. With this type of contrast (notable from quite an early stage on the album) one has to expect some surprises along the way.

Do The Joy - an odd track to start the album with. Nonetheless, a good indicator of the albums flow and overall feel. The song sounds like something from 10,000 Hz Legend, with it's multi-layered synth forefront and distorted voice effects. Not the albums strongest but interesting and innovative at the very least. 7/10

Love - once again, not your typical 'second' song. It holds a sense of simplicity though, and as the song progresses it turns from a basic loop into a nice, soft-like piece with a great chord progression and melody (the glockenspiel adds an awesome feel). Sounds like something you'd hear at the end of Moon Safari - especially the later half of the piece. It wasn't my favourite at first, but after a few listens it grew on me. 7/10

So Light Is Her Football - the first song to really feature lyrical dynamics. The music sounds Pocket Symphony era, with the song being driven by piano and hovering strings. I heard (or read) somewhere that this will be the second single off the album. An odd decision I believe, but who knows - maybe it needs more listens. The song seems a little bland at some points, but holds suspense from an instrumentation point of view. 6/10

Be A Bee - definitely not a song you'd think AIR would produce.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ready For Takeoff? October 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The French duo known as Air has returned with their unique brand of spacey future-jazz, and long-time listeners are rewarded with the band's finest effort since their seminal "Moon Safari" changed perspectives on the possibilities that can be created when genuine musicianship is matched with talented production. The downtempo wizardry that has become the band's staple returns full-fledged, begging for play during a weekend dalliance with a lover (or two). Unlike all of Air's albums, however, where only a handful of songs ever punch the throttle and generally just provide a little curveball among the more prevalent relaxing numbers, Love 2 gives listeners a healthy-dose of toe-tappers sprinkled with the little confectionary delights that have always emanated from their sugary-sweet soundboards. The band is at its absolute finest when the androgynous combination of members Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel's voices serve as another instrument rather than a clear delineation between lyric and music, and although used sparingly, often meld into the songs in a fashion that has some shoegaze-like qualities. The brilliant and diverse track "Tropical Disease" is like a mid-album docking station for your spaceship, allowing you to catch your breath before the album culminates with several unmistakeable Air songs, including the incredibly catchy "Sing Sang Sung", which fills the band's once-an-album quota of songs that sound like they should be heard during the opening credits of a 70's sitcom. Air is a band that has found its niche, makes no apologies about their musical choices, and does not stray from their well-tread and highly-successful path. Love 2 is a treat for both ardent fans of Air, as well as newbies who are just discovering why the French are currently at the forefront of the music industry...

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting back into form. November 29, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Not bad. Still not as good as their earlier stuff, but better than their previous effort. "Sing Sang Sung" is so much fun, as are a lot of other tracks on here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amour, Imagination, Rêve (AIR) October 19, 2009
By Lemon
Format:Audio CD
Inevitably, bands will try new things album to album. What if that band was so influential that they start to influence themselves? This is Air. Love 2 is clearly an album inspired by their previous collective works. This is evident to those familiar with Air. The inclusion of Be A Bee is a huge bonus, as this song was written years ago but they only performed it live (until now). This album fits perfectly with the AIR mantra of love, imagination, dream. If you like any other Air album, you will enjoy Love 2. For those of you who are new to Air, this would be a great place to start. See them live. You will be inspired.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh Air October 7, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Air, or the 'French-Electronic Beatles' as I describe them to friends who are unfamiliar with their music, have added yet another gem to their catalog.
'Love 2' is a fresh, smooth listen from start to finish. Upbeat at times, but chilling as well. Classic Air, but while dark at times, this album left me feeling more positive and relaxed than say 'Pocket Symphony'. It's more of a throwback in feel, but with the modernity of their recent productions. Their live instrumentation does well to liven up the mix, and blended with their talent level as producers, this offering should play well to their fan base, and to those looking to escape to an electronic daydream.

New Air sound...
Though not electronically driven I would like to think the new music will still evoke a similar feeling to earlier works. Personally Pocket Symphony is my favorite Air album, I am enjoying the groups progression and look forward to the new album!
