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! Sober, yet embarrassingly drunk, chaste yet fraught with a feeling of concupiscence, the rest of "MOON SAFARI", gets even the most ardent teetotaler drunk. "Sexy Boy", "All I Need", "Kelly, Watch The Stars!", one after the other, the goodies come by, each complimenting the other, to make "MOON SAFARI", a very fine album.
"MOON SAFARI", in all its mysteriousness, is an album of sin, in its subtlest forms. It is quiet, deceptively easygoing, sensitive and sensuous: it is beautiful!
