    Like all great Air, this record is not what it seems, waiting to get under your skin and into your psyche. In that respect, Love 2 is just like Moon Safari. Grumpy reviewing aside, Air has evolved in their own way and shows it with each successive release. Everything you love about Air is here just waiting for you. Just relax and hang up the crankiness.

    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

    I think is a very nice album, much better than Pocket S. It has a little bit of Moon Safari, Virgin S, Premiers S and Talkie W....great stuff!...my only down is that i found a little bit loopy.

  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.
