French duo Air's debut album is a superlatively happy collection of experimental disco-mood sound nestled between
ambient soundscape and breathy pop. It's jazzy and melodic, and mostly laid-back, but not excessively so. There are a
few shake-it, shake-it numbers, too, like the absurdly daft hit "Sexy Boy." It's snap your fingers and hang out (while
reading) music or dance around sexy-slow with your mate music. It's also the perfect music to do your ironing or some
other chore to; it's hypnotizing wallpaper music. It slips in and out of your consciousness, forcing you to move around
with a relaxed smile before you even realize it. Oh, and contrary to sampler fashion, Nicolas Godin and Jean Benoit
Dunckel played the instruments themselves.
