Happily, Talkie Walkie reunites us with the Air that we love: two hopelessly indulgent romantics with an ear in the past and an eye on the future. It's meltingly good stuff--a collection of cool, cosmic pop songs that dispense with notions of time and space, wallowing instead on a cloud of poignant psychedelia. With vocal duties this time taken by the boys themselves, and gorgeously fragile strings courtesy of Serge Gainsbourg collaborator, Michel Colombier, they get off to a good start. Perhaps the introduction of an outside producer, in this case Radiohead's Nigel Godrich, has forced such beautifully measured focus? Whatever, touchy-feely epics such as the heavenly "Cherry Blossom Girl" sit well next to electronic masterpieces such as "Ran," whose enveloping tracked vocals recall the 10cc classic "I'm Not in Love." --Paul Tierney
When first listening to this CD, I thought this is a good Air Cd.

There is something quite dreamy, ethereal, and indeed blissful in the music of Air, and in particular on this, their third album.

I'm giving this 4 out of 5 stars because this album doesn't quite live up to the majesty of Air's earlier albums. Read morePublished on September 14, 2011 by E. Truman
This is a pretty good album with very interesting and catchy songs. It's much better than the overrated Moon Safari. Read morePublished on July 9, 2011 by MusicIsMath
TALKIE WALKIE sees a welcome return to form for Air, much closer in spirit to MOON SAFARI than 10,000 HZ LEGEND. Read morePublished on March 10, 2011 by scoundrel
Each track has the unique sound of Air, but unlike some of their albums each track is distinctive while still soothing. Every track has something to offer. Read morePublished on January 26, 2011 by Corinne Adams
