This record shows in some cases a similar style to Daft Punk, but with fewer extremely annoying "experimental" sirenes and blaring synthesizers that make you want to pierce your eardrums with a toothpick. However, some songs do depend too much on generic elevator/video-game menu music vibes, or take a little bit too long to become exciting. Songs that are worth being added to my collection, are Voyage, Ce matin-la, Femme d'argent, Kelly and All I Need. I feel that each of these songs adds something new to the experience, different instrumentals, different tempo but the same funky and relaxing atmosphere. With me liking exactly 50 percent of the album, I feel it deserves an overall score of 6/10.

Oh, it sounds like this?! Saw this album dozens of times as a kid without ever hearing it. Expected it to sound like proto-Landfill Indie but it actually sounds like a coma patient waking up. Because it renders 60's positivity with a 90's futurism whose grasp almost exceeds its reach, that patient could be any number of dead, buried and long-forgotten bands. And because the silly-spooky voices and cute piano figures are imbued with a wry whimsy, I'm guessing the band find their venture both fun and funny. I do too, without ever being totally roused out of my hospital bed. Also has the MASSIVE benefit of featuring THAT song from 10 Things I Hate About You, which I probably watched as many times as I saw this album cover in HMV.

Man, I'd totally forgotten about this band. There was a short period where this album was on regular rotation in my college apartment. I had a roomate who became totally enamored with them after hearing one of their tracks on a commercial. I actually really like several of these tracks despite Air being part of that same European school of electronic music as Daft Punk. The repetitiveness of the songs tends to annoy me after three minutes in or so. The songs are, on average, about a minute longer than they should be. That said, it's an album full of good, chill, background jams. I still a fan of La Femme d'Argent, All I Need, and Talisman.

Surprisingly enjoyable. I thought, upon hearing the first track “okay some more ephereal French flim flam - let’s see how this goes” but with a light hand on the tiller, Air guide us through the rivers of the world. Unusual, and quite unique sounding - there’s plenty of tonal variety and texture within the gestalt of waifish French flim flam. You know what? I’ve talked myself into a 4. In reality probably a 3.5, but I’m feeling good after that, so yeah. 4.

Psychedelic synth porn got me drooling omg. The basslines are varied both in melody and in tone with some upright, some electric, and lots of synth bass everywhere. It's like a retro Avalanches record. Which, notable difference is how analogue everything sounds and I can't really describe it any other way. I also love the mixing in this - very much an album for headphones and drugs. My only gripe is that Sexy Boy doesn't hit and some of the songs run a bit long.

31st May 2021 Listened on the drive home to London. Sometimes an album catches you perfectly, and this says a lot about the importance of when and where you listen to an album. Summer afternoon, window down, perfect. Air walked so Daft Punk could do the robot?

I'm not sure how it's taken me almost a quarter of a century to listen to this, but I certainly won't be leaving it 23 years before its next spin. A brilliant album from start to finish. A really nice, vibe that hits the perfect spot between fun and relaxing. Some bangers that I was already familiar with, interspersed with chilled out tracks, giving this album a great flow and feel. Effortlessly cool and catchy without being cheesy. Instantly love it.

So I was thinking, I've been handing out too many 5 stars lately, therefore Moon Safari needs to get 4 stars. But then I started listening to the album again after, admittedly, way too long a break. The bass lines on the first track (La femme d'argent) were all it took to make me shiver and recall taking the chance and buying the CD based on an old friend's recommendation. And then Sexy Boy, and then Beth Hirsch's voice, and on and on - each and every song on this album is something special. I'm sorry to say it, but this is "another" 5 stars album. How I loved Air! But I still need a lot of Air.

What a breath of fresh air. It's easy to understand how this kind of thing could take over the world. I remember first hearing Air during the worst hangover I had in my life - new year's day after a night of too many different types of alcohol - beer, whiskey, wine, champagne, gin... I was debilitated, couldn't go out, couldn't move, and my friend put them on and it provided a nice cool atmosphere to make me feel, at least temporarily, a little less miserable. That memory aside, I found this album irresistible.

I’ve officially reached one full week of experiencing and giving my impressions of the 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. It’s been a fun and rewarding project and this is album number seven. The second of which I knew absolutely nothing about.. The album of the day is titled Moon Safari by the French band Air. This effort was released in 1998, one of my favorite years in music in my lifetime in that I was old enough to really start making my own decisions in what I like but more importantly, when I was able to buy my own collection of cassettes and tapes. Full disclosure, I’m not all that knowledgeable about electronic music, EDM, techno and all other related music. I can’t name a single Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers or The Prodigy song. (I do know Fire Starter though!) While I’ve never been able to relate to a lot of this style of music, I respect it and acknowledge it’s influential impact on many, many other genres, including my first love, hip hop. Now that I’ve gotten the homage paying part out of the way, I have to give my honest thoughts on Moon Safari with having only 24 hours with it... There are so many other better albums that could have taken the place of this mediocre record. I don’t intend to offend, but I doubt that I will. Sure, if you put this cassette in the tape deck of my 1988 Acura Integra in 1998, I won’t go rushing for the eject button. It’s not bad at all in any way. I really didn’t mind it. It just didn’t scratch any particular itch for me. I didn’t find myself yearning to hear any of these songs again. Sometimes I’ll listen to a new song obsessively on repeat. Not the case here. I do really like the bass on most tracks. The few songs that actually had vocals were okay. The 70’s synthesizers were dope. I’m not hating on Air or their debut album Moon Safari.. But.. In the end, I won’t go back to this album. I need re-playability in my music. If I’m watching a movie and hear a song from this cut in the soundtrack, I may not even recognize it. There are a couple stand out cuts from a project that, to me, sounded more like a demo from a couple of really talented producers that have yet to find their muse. The second song on the record, Sexy Boy, was the most satisfying with the synthetic voice as a catchy rift. The title song, Moon Safari, one of the two only songs that featured a singer, is a cool 90’s love song. I just feel like their are many other really good albums that should have had their place in this collection. Such as Salt’n Pepa’s Hot Cool and Vicious, or The Barenaked Ladies Stunt album released the same year as Moon Safari, a massive hit. Those are just two examples of monster records that were left off of the list. Oh well. At the end of the day, I didn’t write the book, I’m just consuming it. I’m enjoying every album no matter what. Please share your thoughts, memories and impressions, especially if you’ve experienced Moon Safari for the first time because of this post. If you know and love this album to death, and hold it dearly to your heart please feel free to tell me how wrong I am, because we all perceive music differently and that’s okay!! ✌️

Wow, it's incredible how boring they are able to be. I don't think I've heard many more boring albums in my entire life (OK, Bob Marley is still worse). Not sure why anyone would ever put this on except for just letting something play in the background that won't distract people and which they won't remember.

Stunning album and a genuine all-time favourite of mine. So this gets maximum possible points for the music but I'm slightly less sure about the legacy/influence/significance (although I'm basing this largely on Wiki). Either way a sick album, with no weak points. 9.5/10

That was genuinely amazing. It's like Pink Floyd Daft Punk, which sounds like the stupidest thing ever, but actually works really well. I found that the weakest track for me was yet again the first one. Maybe my ears needed some warming up, I don't know. After that it's great song after great song. The biggest highlights for me were "Sexy Boy", "You Make it Easy", "New Star in the Sky". Turns out French electronic elevator music goes HARD. This and Oxygene, which I just had four days ago.

I can't believe this was released in 98! This was so influential when it came out, I was into Sophia Coppola's films at the time also, particularly Virgin Suicides so this really hit the spot. The way they were able to blend groovy sounds from the 60s and 70s into this new \"chill out\" sound was really innovative and this album holds up surprisingly well today.

Ich schreibe auf deutsch um meine wortgewandheit in meiner Muttersprache ein bisschen zu steigern. Ich habe zuvor noch nie von der Band oder dem Album gehört, aber war vom ersten Song an gefesselt. Der opener La femme d'argent hat mir besonders gut gefallen, genauso wie die nachfolgenden Stücke. Am Ende litt meine Hörerfahrumg wohl ein wenig an meiner kurzen Aufmerksamkeitsspanne und dem meinem Alltagsstress, dennoch ein sehr schönes erstes Album, sehr entspannend, einfach sehr cool.

Air produced something close to pure bliss with this record, creating a set of songs completely apt for the name of the album. "La femme d'argent" shoots for the moon and dances its way to the surface in a hazy paradise. I could listen to that bassline groove for the whole album, but after what feels like no time at all we're hit with "Sexy Boy"'s distorted synth-bass, the beat crashes in and we hear possibly the most seductive vocal ever delivered through a Leslie speaker. The rest of the album floats delicately between lush ballads, danceable psych-rock, and blatantly ELO-reminiscent strings and vocoder (looking at you "Remember"). All the lyrics are fairly immaterial, forming part of the landscape more than anything to live by or get tattooed on your arm. But that's not an issue here- the beauty of this album brought it close to a 5* listen, showcasing everything a band like Pink Floyd could have been doing in the 90s if they hadn't become plodding, middle-aged Radio 2 kissers. This is a 9/10 for sure- rounding down because I didn't think it finished as well as it started.

Med musikens drömmiga ljud och harmoniska melodier kunde jag sjunka ner i marken och smältas in i musiken. Albumets extraordinära förmåga att väcka empati hos lyssnaren gjorde det till en minnesvärd upplevelse. Albumet lyckas nå en känsla som få gör. Trots den exceptionella egenskapen har vägen till kvaliteten otillräckligheter. Musiken kändes för tunn vid vissa tillfällen. Ett logiskt motargument hade varit att det är albumets tendens och teknik för att producera det de vill uppnå. Enligt mig framstod dessa tunna delar vara ostadiga, otrygga och obearbetade.

Paluu vanhaan suosikkilevyyn. Tämä herättää aika samankaltaisia tunteita kuin aiemmin arvosteltu Mobyn Play. Vaikken sinänsä en keksi suurempia moitteita levystä tai sen kappaleista, ei tämä vaan sytytä enää ihan samalla tavalla kuin aiemmin. Erityisesti hittibiisit (La Femme Argent, Sexy Boy, Kelly Watch the Stars) tuntuivat vähän väsähtäneiltä. Eniten juuri nyt miellyttivätkin levyn loppupään kappaleet You Make It Easy, Ce Matin-La ja New Star in the Sky. Vanhoilla meriiteillä tämä olisi ollut selvä nelonen. Nyt keikutaan kolmosen ja nelosen välimaastossa. Muihin kolmosen levyihini vertaamalla arvosana pyöristyy ylöspäin.

Listalla aiemmin ollut Virgin Suicides ei oikein sytyttänyt, mutta tämä Moon Safari kuulosti jo hyvältä. Lähellä jo vitosta, mutta neloseen kuitenkin jää tällä kertaa. Rauhallista tunnelmaa ja ilmavaa (hehhehe) sointia. Tämä täytyy pistää muistiin, sopinee hyvin viikonloppujen päiväaikaan taustamusiikiksi. Kuuntelin tämän levyn kaiuttimista ja kuulokkeilla. Kaiuttimilla kuulosti paremmalta, kai tämä on sen sorttista kamaa, että myös kuunteluvälineillä on väliä.

Ah, the sound of 1998 sophistication, familiar from every coffee shop, dinner party and dorm room that wanted to class itself up a bit. I think I prefer the Beth Hirsch vocal tracks to anything else on here. "Le soleil est près de moi" from the Premiers Symptômes EP really should have been included too. 4 stars for nostalgia.

Surprisingly, a very solid electronic album. With the atrocities in the genre included in this list, this album is among a very few that focuses more on writing songs and compositions rather than beats. The album has a great runtime, solid production, a few clear singles, melody, dynamics and differing rhythms. Respect to Air!

Moon Safari is the second album recommended to me from Air. I'm not sure how to assess how much I liked this album. There were portions of the album that reminded me of ELO or some of the popular music from the 70s. Some of my least favorite tracks were the tracks with female guest vocalists. All of the tracks seemed at least okay. I added "La femme d'argent" (my favorite track) and "Talisman" to my personal playlist for a re-listen. I would be open to listenting to more from Air. I don't think that there are any tracks that I would skip, so I'll do a bit of rounding up to a full 4 stars.

I could swear that we'd done this one already, but maybe it was just me listening to the album on my own that I'm remembering... That pretty much tells you how I feel about Air right there. I love getting lost in their lush soundscapes. They have this vaguely nostalgic retro vibe to them, and yet the way it is all layered together so smoothly and cleanly, using more modern production techniques, it ends up sounding somewhat outside of time. This album and "Premiers Symptomes" are my favorites. Nothing else ever seemed to quite match the seductive qualities of this early material. They went on in subsequent albums to get a bit goofier in a way that sort of breaks the spell for me. But this early stuff man, I think it might possibly be the best make-out music in existence.

Coffee table classic. Nearly all the tracks are radio hits or well known from bars, restaurants, clothes shops, TV programs, dinner parties. Very good melodies and fairly stripped back, but clever music that could have been set in 70s, 80s or 90s and now pretty much timeless. Almost prog (Floyd, Kraftwerk). Excellent.

My reaction to this is a testament to my own prejudices. I enjoyed this greatly, and it's definitely going into rotation for repeated listens, study music, etc. And yet I have some kind of bias against taking it seriously as art. What's up with that? It is not immediately "challenging" or "riveting," but I don't think it's trying to be and it doesn't have to be. In 1998 it must have been way ahead of its peers and for the trails it's blazed for Royksopp, Tycho, etc I am thoroughly grateful.

Based on my prior encounters with Air in several soundtracks, I was surprised how eclectic and varied their style is from track-to-track. Not all of it clicks for me, but there's a handful of excellent lite electronic pop songs. That sample of "Do It Again" on "Remember" came out of nowhere! The duo's attention to detail and arrangement choices are consistently intriguing and tasteful, as well, which pushes it up a notch for me. Rating: 3.5/5 Favourite tracks: "La femme d'argent", "Kelly Watch the Stars", "Remember"

Air does a great job here presenting a group of well-crafted electronic pop songs. The duo presents Moon Safair as a playground of synths, but with some buoys of organic and familiar samples floating along the surface to not get lost. Fav tracks: Kelly Watch the Stars and Remember

There are some gorgeous songs here. These guys really know how to craft a relaxing and wondrous atmosphere to get lost in.

It is a nice album, but not consistent enough for me in its execution.

Electronic French duo 'Air' successfully executes atmospheric downtempo music, albeit lacking much flair. The minimalist approach to both arrangement and production lay the groundwork for an effective laid-back record, which 'Moon Safari' definitely encapsulates. Perfect for disconnecting from the world with its unsophisticated musical backdrop, the record remains polished despite weaknesses stemming from its hermetic nature.

Electronic music isn't really my thing, but this was alright.

Funny anecdote - when I listened the first time I had some playback issue and the last 3 minutes of the first song were just silence. I though, "what a strange way to start an album." But I went back and re-listened and figured out what happened. 3 stars.

La femme d'argent: Very nice and smooth. Gets your head moving. Baseline is very very nice. Key riffs and jazzy chords nice. Really 'nostalgically futuristic' feel to it. Probably a bit too long, though the synth line at 6:00 is good. 3/5 ------ Sexy Boy: Too much going on, but in its sparser points it makes for nice listening. Has that similar futuristic feel as the opening track. Keys at 2:30 are okay. 2.5/5 ------ All I Need (feat. Beth Hirsch): Interesting vocals if not the greatest lyrics (very sampleable). The keys are again very nice, as are the chords. Vocoder/bass synth? at 3:08 is very nice - a lot less overbearing than the bass of Sexy Boy. 3/5 ------ Kelly Watch the Stars: Bass pretty nice. A bit samey. Vocals are somewhat annoying. Slightly cheesy even. 2.5/5 ------ Talisman: Really nice chords and bassline. A serious level up from the previous tracks. Drums also nice. Pads are nice. Very dreamy and spacey. Strings maybe a bit much. 3.5/5 ------ Remember: Vocals not so annoying, but again too much going on. 2.5/5 ------ You Make It Easy: Nice drums. Beth Hirsch is good. Guitar is nice. Chords okay. Too much going on after 3:00. 2.5/5 ------ Ce matin-la - From "L'uomo in più": Makes for a soft and pleasant listen. The wah-wah organ stabs are the unnecessary addition here, but not unpleasant. The vocal backing is nice. Very nice track. 3.75/5 ------ New Star in the Sky: Easy listening. Second longest track on the album but manages not to be boring where shorter songs failed. 3/5 ------ Le Voyage de Penelope: Synth line is beautiful. Chords very nice. Clearly left the best to last. Very nice bass guitar and pads. Really really nice. 4/5 ------ Overall: The tracks have a tendency to step a few steps too many over the line of cheesiness. Though not overly long generally speaking, all of the songs get to a point where you're actively waiting for them to end. Some very nice production and instrumentation but often overshadowed by the amount of stuff going on in each given track. The album is at its strongest with 'Talisman', 'Ce-matin la', 'New Star in the Sky' and 'Le voyage de Penolope' - those being the most minimal and jazzy tracks. 3/5

“Moon Safari” by Air (1998) Robot music with flashes of beauty. Spare barely-lyrics, apparently designed to briefly and very occasionally engage the mind. Some nice bass guitar work over colorful percussion, with electrojazz keyboards. But the keyboard arrangements are relatively simple and soulless right-hand paste ups. Chord structures are inelegant and repetitive. This is music to listen to when your brain is doing something else. Emotional engagement is minimal, mostly as a spectator sport. “Sexy Boy” feels like it was written about a male love doll or a Steely Dan. Vocals by Beth Hirsch (“All I Need”, “You Make It Easy”) are very engaging. Actually these two tracks stand apart on this album, relegating the electronic music to the background where, frankly, it belongs. Excellent tuba (I kid you not) solos by Patrick Woodcock on “Ce Matin-là”. Overall, though, this album does not inspire. 2/5

Another album of electronic music that I didn't like. Surely it must end soon. This one was decent in places but still not anything I want to listen to again. If I'm going to listen to French electronica it's going to be a certain duo of robot helmet wearing fellows.

Meh. Objectively, it's fine. There's nothing wrong with it. There's just...nothing there. Nothing to grab on to. Like air, I guess. I enjoy listening to this type of music while I read, but I would never seek out a certain artist or song.

Ok, hard for me to enjoy as anything other than background music

Creative, atmospheric, unique, but ultimately boring.

Not in my top 1000 albums of all time! Even referencing the release date, not sure this one has much wow factor.

Garbage. Boring repetitive garbage. One of the worst albums I've ever heard in my life.

Annoyingly unnecessary.

1) Smooth, mix is a bit odd, bass is nice, definitely has that 90s feel.

¡Ay! qué chiquitico era y que de cosas aprendí con este disco. Nuestro cerebro es una mierda que hace imposible la objetividad. Aunque puestos a elegir, menos influyente pero a años luz, siempre me parecieron Lemonjelly
