Air: Moon Safari (Source/Virgin CDV 2848 £13.99)

David Sinclair, The Times, 16 January 1998

NICOLAS GODIN and Jean- Benoit Dunckel, the youthful duo better known as Air, come from Versailles and have mysteriously acquired a fashionable cachet not normally associated with performers from that region of France. Moon Safari, their first proper album, is a collection of stylish if rather jejune themes for synthesizer and strings, with a sparkle that is more tinsel than gold.
