With dance-music gaining unconventional facets, AIR too, like its confreres, has touched up dance with its own unique style, adding a rather laid-back and drunk countenance to dance, which is radically uncharacteristic of this form of music. "MOON SAFARI" doesn't fit quite well under the rubric of any of the ramifications of contemporary dance music. It is laidback, it has a lot of retro psychedelic elements fused in the tipsy and drowsy atmosphere of its songs; the album is drastically different. It is interestingly groggy, painfully slow, and maddeningly addictive.
The album is like one of those bars, which you love to visit every night, get shamelessly drunk, and have the worst hangover the next day, and the day after that, and the day after that, and so on: It is as if you want to visit the bar again and again, just to enjoy the messed up state of your head during the hangover.
The album begins with the very sensual "La Femme D' Argent": the first seven-odd minutes of the album, which tickles you at just the right spots, and you are at your sensuous best; and this is just the beginning!Read more ›
With "Moon Safari," Air has managed to produce an album that is modern with countless references to the past. There are many references to Jazz and Rock, but they never overshadow the ultra mellow electronic aspect. This album is perfect for anything from 'background socialization' music to 'do nothing but listen to music' music.
One listen will tell anyone why this (as of today) is ranked 441 on Amazon.com's sales list (out of severl hundred thousand). Air's critical acclaim across many countries is evidence that they produce music that is something special to humankind.
