There is not much to say. The article stresses that JB and Nico have been going separate ways for years. It seems that JB has played music on pictures. The stage setup reminds me of what Chassol has been doing with his project Big Sun or Indiamore (which are highly recommended for Air's music lovers!).

It has all become so weird. JB is prolific and to most, boring (not to me), and Nicolas does very little.

Dunno about you guys but I have "HOLD ON" stuck in my head and it's not going away!
I think this album is stronger than Darkel (2006)!


...JB still never fails to be cheesy as possible of course. I was praying he would have had someone check his lyrics for anything embarrassing but even the opening line from "Hold On" is really unintentionally hilarious (My heart is growing cold, but daddy's coming home!) and don't get me started on "Love Machine" (Lovely young lady, you're a fashion model size / I'm your sugar Daddy, I'm not telling lies) :lol: :lol:

Personally I feel like, the Air albums since Pocket Symphony and their solo work seems to drift into either crazy indulgent instrumentation (see: Le voyage dans la lune) or OTT lyrical cheesiness ("Tropical Disease" - "Woman, make me feel...warm inside").

Still, I gotta say - H+ by JB Dunckel has moments of pure AIR goodness that I've missed so much. "Space Age" has the lushness, "Hold On" is a total earworm, "Quartz" sounds better than any instrumental on Le voyage dans la lune, and "Show Your Love" sounds like Pocket Symphony meets 10,000 Hz Legend "The Garden" actually sounds like a musical sequel to "Wonder Milky Bitch"! The whole album has that lovely warm synth Air vibe we have been missing.
