3.0 out of 5 stars Very indifferent, bland 46 minute album without any standout tracks, 30 May 2010
This review is from: Love 2 (Audio CD)
There are still minute traces of Moon Safari X factor here and there but it's spread very thinly. The majority of these tracks are either instrumental, or lyrically so brief and soft as to be instrumental anyway. This is not an album heavy with lyrics.

1. "Do the Joy" 2:59 (7 out of 10 stars)
Effective near instrumental.

2. "Love" 2:43 (7 stars)
Another decent near instrumental.

3. "So Light Is Her Footfall" 3:13 (7 stars)
It's alright, has some good little musical details in it like the backwards guitar. All a bit lightweight to be a single (they made a music video for it so I assume it was released as a single).

4. "Be a Bee" 3:45 (7 stars)
A more propulsive, rockier track. Has some short buried vocals so for all intents and purposes it's an instrumental.

5. "Missing the Light of the Day" 4:26 (4 stars)
A bunch of musical noises and hard to make out computer treated vocals. A bit of a tasteful mess musically.

6. "Tropical Disease" 6:47 (7 stars)
Up-tempo instrumental (there's some very brief vocals five minutes in). A bit basic and simple, lacking any left turns that you would expect from Air. A curiously straightforward track. It could almost be soundtrack music for an 80's detective programme (I'm picturing Bergerac even though I've never seen an episode).

7. "Heaven's Light" 3:51 (5 stars)
Indifferent vocal track. Completely forgettable.

8. "Night Hunter" 4:13 (5 stars)
A lot of interesting sounds on this instrumental but it doesn't really add up to a song. Pointless.

9. "Sing Sang Sung" 3:08 (5 stars)
Soft vocal song. Pretty but bland. Unimpressive, especially for a lead single.

10. "Eat My Beat" 2:44 (5 stars)
A ballsier, rockier instrumental. Mildly invigorating but doesn't go anywhere or do anything.

11. "You Can Tell It to Everybody" 4:09 (3 stars)
Soft mid-tempo vocal song that reminds me melodically of "Weather With You" by Crowded House. Boring and featureless.

12. "African Velvet" 3:47 (2 stars)
Amazingly bland instrumental. How they recorded this, played it back and then thought it was worth including I can't imagine.

I like to make EP playlists out of some albums on my iPod. Tracks 1, 3, 4 and 6 made the cut.
