The new disc is far less skronky and cacophonous, its melodies having been burnished to a chrome-like, Euro-chic sheen.
These are vast recordings, traveling from the deepest crypts to the furthest reaches of space.

The innocence of Martin’s music has always been one of the main attractions that Joy Electric has had for me.
A classic in the same league as all of their previous albums.
Challenging while still entertaining, Air’s latest work should go over well with those looking for a late-night mood album.
This is just confirmation that Air is one of the greatest bands around right now.
