Air – Pocket Symphony

This is a great title for an album. It reminds me of a mix between a pocket Casio and a symphony and that’s really what this album is all about……..it’s an electro symphony! Welcome to “Moon Safari Part II”. Frenchmen, Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoit Dunckel have gone back to their lush cinematic sounds of their first album which was something that I felt was missing in Talkie Walkie and 10,000 Hz Legend before that. Most of the dreamy vocals are still performed by our French friends but ‘Pocket Symphony” also adds guests vocalists Jarvis Cocker from Pulp and Neil Hannon of Divine Comedy on a couple of the tracks. “Pocket Symphony” might not go down as a great pop album, but it’s divine dreamy, sleepy time music.
