    An amazingly great album, it really does capture Air's atmospheric feel. I think a lot of the criticism comes from it being compared to Air's other work; this album isn't as energetic as Air's other music, but it's just as satisfying

    This record just feels flat, made up of a patchwork of half baked ideas. It's not very cohesive and doesn't hold a candle to Talkie Walkie which was amazing.

  1. Air remains a deceptively subtle band, but repeated listens to Love 2 reveal that Godin and Dunckel aren't just remaining true to their aesthetic here, but that even a smaller-scale album from the duo has plenty of wit and surprises to offer.
  2. Thing is, it still sounds entirely like an Air album--just a remarkably bland one.
  3. Consistently smooth to the point of tedium, Love 2 has the unruffled air of '50s bachelor-pad cool, often recalling Enoch Light and other space-age instrumentalists, but its overbearing electronic elements negate the organic feel it would otherwise inherit from those albums, leaving an impressively dispassionate patina with almost nothing underneath.
