AIR'S "10000Hz Legend".

Category: Music

I think, the record is so bizzre, surreal, artistic, stunning, awsome, creative, out of this world that it deserves to be mentioned and recommended. One thing is certain: The music is anything but boring and deserves to be in your collection. A must for techno fans. Any takers?

I love the piano and acoustic guitar and bass layering along with futuristic elecronic notes and hushed vocals. And the lyrics: Fascinating!!
I can't listen to their music at high volume at all. It literally makes me sick to my stomach!
I am refering to their new one. " 10000Hz Legend ". The moderator seems to have removed the title.... I have not heard their old work.
Me too.
Nilthepill-I thought it was quite a mediocre album in relation to their previous two however sometimes when you hear an artist for the first time the impact of that particular album is hard to shake,therefore you may not find this to be the case.
Moon Safari is more mellow less edgy more original and to my tastes more complete.
I think some of the dancier/hardcore elements of the new one have been executed better by other artists (Chemical Bros.,Orbital etc.)...
Their new one is similar in some ways to their Vigin Suicide soundtrack in their quieter moments,strangely I found that soundtrack very very (in parts)like DSOM by Pink Floyd.
But hey if you enjoy it,enjoy it.
This is one of the BEST Albums of 2001 along with Radiohead 's "Amnesiac".Airs 1st hit was Sexy Boy a trance dance song I can do without also Radio #1 is better but same.Virgin Suicides Album=Pink Floyd?10'000 HZ Legend Beyond anything Pink Floyd has done in some time.R Head and Air are leading the way Big time!

I Reaaaaaaallly don't know what bigjim is talking about. If this makes him sick to stomach, then I really his taste in music. Thanks Ben_Campbell for the background info. This album is edgier without being in your face ala Chemical brothers recent outings( although I loved there last) Orbital, I have been buying and enjoying faithfully. No regrets.

No, the more I listen to this album the further it soldifies its position in MY top very few (less than .5% of 500 some CDs I have)favorites that are eligible to be buried with me in my grave. The very few includes the Radio head, The future sound of london, few Jazz and classical perormances. Trust me on this. THIS IS A KEEPER.
This may very well be Album of the year for 2001 !!
A month later and buying all of their work,now more than ever I think, the 10000 Hz Legend is their work. I loved the Moon safari's and Virgin Suicides simplicity. The consistency of great compositions, the production values, the lyrics, the singing is truly exceptional.
Should read ...." 10000Hz Legend is their BEST work ". The telecon at work made me wrap up the post rather in a hurry. If you are adventurous, go ahead and try the music. You will not be disappointed.
Air have a new remix album called Everybody Hertz out in the UK.
And I think it was released here in US yesterday. I am getting it tommorrow! thx Ben.
i get a stupid ear to ear grin everytime i listen to this album,,,
