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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

Upon my first listen through for Love2, I found myself a bit bewildered. My ears hungered for purpose and direction. Starting off with Do The Joy -- an intro full of cacophony -- I found myself angered and disappointed. When I made it through all the tracks I felt robbed of an experience.

HOWEVER ... the music AIR creates is not linear. Their rhythm is not a one-note. It challenges you ... and Love2 certainly excels at this. After the third or fourth listen I began to comprehend the intent and emotion conveyed by AIR. Echoing Premiers Symptomes and Moon Safari, Love2 takes you back to the roots of AIR while at the same time moving the listener forward beyond measure.

To select a "favorite" track from Love2 is pretty impossible. Each song is so unique and moving that one's "favorite" changes with the particular mood you may be in at the moment. Rarely does any artist accomplish this, and with Love2 AIR has created a gem I will cherish for a long time.

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!
