    The result is as dreamy and captivating as anything Nicolas Godin has ever done. [Mar 2020, p.117]
  2. Jan 24, 2020
    Though the closest Godin comes to the excitement of Contrepoint is the jazzy, suite-like finale "Cité Radieuse," Concrete and Glass is still a fine example of his distinctively smooth style.

    Soft keyboard lines wow and flutter tastefully. [Feb 2020, p.28]

    Concrete And Glass is a fine piece of architecture, typically classy and emotive while providing some very necessary warmth and light for the January darkness. We may well pine for something new from Air, but in their absence this will do very nicely indeed.

    Concrete and Glass won’t shock, sparkle, or challenge cultural norms, but it’s a (mostly) lovely place to inhabit.
  6. Jan 24, 2020
    There’s not enormous substance here, but it’s a fine amuse bouche.
  7. Mojo

    More recognisably Air-like despite half its tracks being merely serviceable collaborations. [Feb 2020, p.89]
