CD Review:

CD Review by Taiwan Fun Music - Air and their debut album 'Moon Safari'. Air- 'Moon Safari'

'Air's' full-length debut is like a fuzzy, blissful daydream in which a glowing ambiance hovers over a crossroads of '60's French pop, '70's Philly-soul and '80's Euro-disco. If it sounds somewhat disposable, it's because all good pop should be.Their trans-Atlantic notoriety may have come amongst compilations of French house and electronic scenes, but Nicolas Godin and JB Dunckel are not just another pair of Gallic beat-miners. Instead of unleashing dance floor-friendly tracks, 'Air' constructs their records with mellow abstractions for retro-minded chill-out rooms, flaunting their analog abilities and love for make-out melodies every step of the way.Entertainment Weekly writes, 'This French duo works the territory between sleazy blaxploitation grooves, rave-culture idealism, and pop song-craft'. I say, 'Stick it in yer ear'.
