I'm more worried about the relative blandness of Air's latest output than what JB's saying in this interview. He's trying to sell his side project, of course he won't speak about Air. I don't really care if Air breaks up. I really hope than one day they'll release a new edgy album, but they shouldn't bother record the cute and harmless songs they've been releasing since 2007.

I’m pretty sure they (AIR) will release new records in the near future.
It is just the end of an era (their contract with EMI).
They will probably sign a new record deal with a new company/label very soon.

Honestly the new album will have to be better than Love 2 (2009) which seemed like a throw up album to respect their contract with EMI.

Generally speaking I’m getting tired of all these side projects (City Reading, Darkel, Le Voyage dans la Lune, soundtracks for designers or fragrance, Tomorrow’s World, etc.). Ten years after its release who remembers about City Reading?


More intriguing is the bit: “Dunckel seems more interested in speculating with the photographer about the scientology network within Paris. “



I still listen to it. I think it's a fantastic album.

After several listens my early conclusions are as follows:

It's a consistently good album. Not great, but very good. An album you can put on and just hit play. Top to bottom, it's strong. There's no superstar tunes I think, but no real stinkers either. I still think Pleurer Et Chanter is the strongest track, and So Long My Love is the weakest. I'd put the former at a 9/10 and the latter at 5/10. The rest of the album is filled with 7's and 8's, which is quite good. Don't look at it as the new Air, it's something different. And I like it.

I've managed to give it a couple of listens, and so far, I really like Pleurer et Chanter and Metropolis They're the ones currently standing out for me, but I need to listen some more. On the whole, it doesn't strike me as an outstanding album in the genres it occupies, but it's good. I'd prefer most of the album without the vocal, but that's down to my personal taste, as Lou Hayter hasn't got an awful voice - I just find that Naive style a little annoying after a while. Instrument-wise, there are some gorgeous, dreamy moments on the album and also some punchy synthpop sounds. JB really knows how to get the best out of a Moog, it seems.
I really ought to hear this album some more - in fact, I'd like to hear it some more, which is always a good thing, eh? :wink:

Thanks so much for sharing this, Antoine. Very interesting interview. So there's more Tomorrow's World music to come, it seems. ;)

yep, and probably less "air" to come... except on side projects like soundtracks

The last post is quite old. I would like to hear from those who have bought the album - or at least have access to the full album. After some time and some several listenings, would you consider it is worth buying it ?
If I want to make a parallel on more objective expectations. I consider "Le voyage dans la lune" was worth buying it, but if we would remove Astronomic Club and Lava from the record, I would not buy it again. Thanks for sharing some thoughts !

Bought it, and forgot it. Nice music, who cares about new pretty sub-Air songs?
