I like the subtle drumming on this one.


I'd like this much better if it were an instrumental. The singing causes me to drop it a few points, though.


I feel like a Gelfling wandering around Jim Henson's world of The Dark Crystal.
RT, nice to see you. What do you think, no kidding.

This is only the third song I've ever rated 1.  I sort of wish there was a negative rating system... the other two songs I rated a 1 weren't nearly this bad.  Perhaps I'll have to raise them back up to 2 just so they aren't in the same category.
It's hard to be negative or positive about such banality.{#Meditate}

I never want to say anything negative. So I won't say anything.

great music for me in this rat exercise wheel I'm in; esp. because today I'm not making any progress even more than usual

Agree!! Very relaxing and cool!

I say! How uncharitable!
6 for me.  No - 7 because of those sinuous key changes later in the song.

When did they take "Supply" off their name?

A "1" and only because a lower number's unavalable.

It often seems that boring people get bored easy. This is in response to the comments about this song.
Wow. A lot of people hate this song. It's very relaxing to me...maybe not so much for work, but I like it. Chill....

{#Meditate}
cool song /cool sound/ cool lyrics
{#Puke}
Starting the new year off with a YAWN...
Agreed. Boredom is the theme tonight.
MAKE IT STOOOOOOOOP{#Frustrated}
I'm getting some bad air over here.

Yes!!!!  Of course it does.  That is one of the clearest signs that the future is bright for you.  Sell your possessions and begin on the journey which will lead you to the meaning of all existence. It starts in the small town of Holbrook arizona and will lead directly and quickly to a himalayan village in nepal where councilors for the Dali Lama are building a school.  
Follow the obvious sign and you will gain enlightenment. 
 
LOL

Without Air, I will die.  So be it.

7 ==> 9
Kinda boring, frankly.

Great album, on par with Air's other stuff. Love it.
Very nice progression......

How many times did RP play this song lately??

They had a different singer for "Playground Love" on the Virgin Suicides soundtrack and that came out great!
If you may listen to the entire album you will discover 2 new singers....Jarvis Cocker from Pulp one of them...
such a sweet infectious little ditty
I got off my exercise machine to uprate this one.
Piano riff sounds nice coming of of Ben Folds. Awesome set-blending as always, Bill!

This is a GREAT album. Not as good as "Talkie Walkie" but definitely fits well into Air's exceptional work
That's it. I'm buying it.
Yet ANOTHER album purchase inspired by RP. :angel: I like the whole thing!

Yeap...the vocals get more irritating, although the instrumental side would need something else to carry it because of its pure repetition. pity it starts off so well

Nice piano run transition from Ben Folds to this. Excellent, Bill :good-vibes:

I feel the same way - it distracts from the lovely instramentals

I'll have to add this to my collection. Very Good!
good change in gears from GJ song ,like it.its 5lathyris wrote:
Air had a somewhat pretentious interview in Playboy a couple months ago -- something about writing their songs in English because there are already too many great songs written in French. I wanted to hate them. . .but damnit, they're pretty listenable.

I keep getting frustrated because I want to take a good listen to the songs from this album, but the songs have such an ambient feel to them that every time one gets played I seem to be concentrating on work (how bizarre) or something else, and I click on the playlist sometime later and see that one of the songs has been played and I hadn't noticed it. This may be the first time that I actually caught one playing. I wish that RP could update the playlist automatically/continuously so I wouldn't have to click on it every few minutes to see what's on now. BTW, a very nice song.
Overall I like Air (thanks to RP's awesome playlist) but not loving this so much.
Just love their stuff. Period.
The new Air album grows ever so slowly into a unity of excellent songs, and this is one of the best. :smile:

Oooo...yes, that would be a perfect!
Great band...they're playing at Kool Haus in Toronto on May 5th. Definitely going to check them out.
Anoter Excellent Air album/song .... this guys are good! Oscar

I'm not liking this album as much as the others. It hardly compares to the transhumanism conundrum presented to us in symphonic bliss in 10,000hz. Or should I say 10,000 hurts. Maybe I just need to listen closer to their play of words. Possibly it will just take some time. But that is getting old.
Who neeeds valium when you could listen to this legally.

Try Charlotte Gainsbourg's album, "5:55" and you will get exactly what you need.

How many times in one week do we have to hear Air? :puke:

Yeah, this sounds way too much like something off Talkie Walkie. I haven't heard the rest of this album, but I'd wish it were more like 1re Symptomes or Moon Safari...
Air rocks my freakin' world
Great new work by Air- have already played this one numerous times and as with "Talkie Walkie" expect to hear more of this on RP
deux garcons ou filles? :think: very relaxing :meditate:
Almost sounds like Philip Glass is playing the piano in the background. And that's not a bad thing..
eh, i'd have sworn i'd heard this here before now... decent tune.
Yes, fresh Air!
oooooooooo
Wooot! New Air!
Thanks for the new one! Loving the Air in here! :daisy:
