It is rare at 36 that music has the same mind altering effect on me that it did so often when I was 16. Moon Safari did, and so does this. Other reviewers have already explained that this is nothing like Moon Safari. Not surprising given that it is a movie soundtrack. The tracks are generally short, and they share melodic themes. Anyone who knows 70s rock will immediately feel the Pink Floyd undertones. But where Floyd was frenzied and dramatic, this is smooth and intoxicating.
The album finishes with a track called "Suicide Underground". A deep synthesized male voice narrates the basic plot of the film from the point-of-view of an adult remembering his childhood living in that neighborhood when the terrible event took place. The effect is haunting and profound. The entire album caresses that deep dark place in your concious mind.
You should buy this album if you like Air for their subtle layering of musical textures that results in a sound that is at once original and familiar. If you like Air because it is upbeat and trippy, wait for their next album, which is supposed to be a proper sequel to Moon Safari.
