The music from 'The Virgin Suicides' is really beautiful. If one band manages to put together instrumental harmonies with well-placed and well-played synths, from time to time adding lyrics as well, it is Air.
And 'The Virgin Suicides' is the band's best release, which demands a lot! The main theme is repeated exactly on the spots of the CD where you long to hear it again.
Beautifully introduced with 'Playground Love', sung by Gordon Tracks, and ending in the somber 'Suicide Underground' which will bring back memories to those who have seen this poetically sad film.
A masterpiece. And I was never even a fan of electronic music before. Then came Air.
Truly a masterpiece...
