Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

French avant-pop duo Air's third album is the soundtrack to the Sofia Coppola movie about a brace of teenage sisters whose beauty mesmerises the local boys and whose suicides devastate the community. It's a Gothic, faintly silly romantic fantasy about lust for the unattainable, and Air's enigmatic "pure pop" treatment is the perfect musical backdrop. Tracks like "Playground Love" and "Highschool Lover" are deceptively candy-coated pieces of puppy lover's pop, all sighing saxophones and dippy keyboards, while "Bathroom Girl" is a slo-mo vision of beauty. With the spookier synth pulses and black vibes of "Cemetery Party" and "Dark Messages", however, Air get to signal the weirder undercurrents of the movie, while "Dead Bodies" is a full-on Gothic wig-out complete with a sisterly choir from beyond the grave. --David Stubbs

Anyone looking to add to their Air collection of mellow, Moog-noodling synth pop should keep the plastic in their wallet. The new album is still recognisable as a product of the Gallic duo, but this time they've replaced the chilled with the chilling. The whiff of fluffy nostalgia that the brilliant Moon Safari evoked has been swapped for haunting Pink Floyd'esque guitar solos over gothic minor chords. As a soundscape of the alienated adolescent soul this album has all the nape tingling angst of Portishead and Radiohead whilst still retaining an almost coy, childish simplicity.
I am a great fan of artists who work on the fringes of the mainstream and manage to avoid the formulaic approach, evolving with each new album. Virgin Suicides is certainly a departure from their back catalogue, but since it is actually a soundtrack rather than a new body of work we may well see a return from the dark side on their next release.

This is a fine album, quite different to any of their other material, and therefore it is easy to see why many listeners may be put off by the unexpectedly dark vibes on show. Opener 'Playground Love' is wonderful, at times trippy and mysterious, at others funky, yet retaining the same tragic feel as is seen throughout the album. Other highlights include 'Dirty Trip', 'Highschool Lovers' and the finale 'Suicide Underground', which ends with a chilling passage from the film. Overall, a stylish, original album that may not appeal to Moon Safari fans but will certainly be adored by lovers of real music...

This soundtrack is amazing. AMAZING. Forget about 'Moon Safari', forget about the film, forget about life and just enjoy. I didn't know much of Air before I heard this(besides 'Sexy Boy', which I thought was a nice idea but ultimately a bit too cheesy). Anyway this soundtrack makes me want to buy everything they've ever produced, despite what assorted 'Moon Safari' fans say here about it being far from their best work.
I have one criticism of this soundtrack, which is that some of the tracks are way too short. Air could have made a 60 minute extravaganza here without a lot of effort and a 74 minute masterpiece with a bit of extra work, that's how good the tracks are. As it is, you get 40 minutes of exceptional work - And a work is what it is, this is no french pop album...It reminds me of Pink Floyd in quite a few places, with hints of ambient Aphex Twin and Godspeed You Black Emperor. So think excessively ambient prog rock, with sprinklings of electronica and a generally dark theme throughout.
Basically if you like music, you need this album. It's a great chill-out album, but don't expect it to be just that - the drumming on some of the tracks is fantastic and the epic quality of the whole album just pervades the room you play it in, demanding attention. It's dreamy but gothic, progressive but never over-ambitious, always sublime and if you like the film...so much more than just a soundtrack. You'll know what I mean if you get to hear it.

If you like "Playground Love" (and who doesn't?) then you will adore this album. Its melancholy, skunked-out grooves are not only deeply moving as a background track but simply breathtaking. Put it this way, if the movie's even a third as good as this soundtrack, we're in for a treat. Brilliance.

Only recently have I become attracted to electronica, and even then I refer electronica that piques one's interests; something that blends into other genres.

This soundtrack is mesmerising, and though I've never seen the film, having read what happens I can imagine it working perfectly in tandem. I was directed to this album through a different source, that being Q Magazine's review of Lana Del Rey's debut album. That review pointed out that this soundtrack's haunting yet disturbingly romantic themes can be heard as an influence on Del Rey's album, and I definitely agree.

Air created a stunning album in the form of this soundtrack, and I highly recommend it.

The band's sound is very characteristic, being more introspective, a mysterious tone and quite instrumental. It's that kind of music to relax the mind, rest. There are many variations, giving the idea of a complete, concise, integrated work. The tone is calm. In this album there are some narratives as well. This album although a soundtrack, reminiscent of the the other album of the band "Moon Safari". Valid! Note 7.5.

Listening to this album is like drowning, except you really don't want to come up for air (air, geddit?). Dark and swirling guitars, beautiful great rolling percussion - from start to finish it's like a hypnotic soundscape that will capture and transfix you. I've had a lot of "favourite" albums in my time, but this one has outlasted all of them. It's like nothing Air have ever done before and surpasses any other soundtrack I've ever heard. Best of all, the whole composition just flows so beautifully that it's easy to get sucked in and then be spat out at the end feeling like not just your ears, but your very soul has been privileged by the experience.

I hadn't really heard any of Air's previous work before I watched 'The Virgin Suicides' but after hearing the haunting soundtrack and the eerie melodies that were so fitting to the film I just had to go out and buy this. It is captivating within itself and is an album that truly makes you think. As a soundtrack it works very well as it is filled with haunting tracks that just make you want to listen again and again.

It will take you back to poignant times in your life and really make you think. I find the tracks so haunting and deep that while listening to them you can really reflect on your emotions and feelings. Although it can sound rather sinister in places it is filled with beautiful tracks which upon listening to reveal their darker themes. A very fitting soundtrack to a wonderful film- you can listen to it on its own or with the film but whichever you choose it will have an impact on you.
