Still AIR's greatest achievement!!!

This is probably my fav electronic album next to OMD's dazzle ships... and they both share a common thread... they bombed upon release.
Following in the heels of a smash debut and a well recieved soundtrack record, AIR took themselves to one of the most experimental (and in my opinion their BEST) levels ever...
10,000 hz.
To describe this album would be impossible because it goes everywhere u never been before and once there, u never wanna leave.
Sadly, most fans hated this album for its lack of "la femme d'argent" sound and being challenged musically. I honestly feel this is a milestone record for music.
Much like OMD's "dazzle ships" where electronic technology was pushed futher than ever before, "10,000 hz" sounds like no other album ever recorded then or since.
Yes, music is subjective. it either moves u or it dont. But it breaks my heart this record is kinda lost...and it caused AIR to pull back and be less daring.(just like dazzzle ships,OMDs next album was way more mondane and safe...and it sucked)
"Walkie talkie" is a ghost ofalready used ideas that are made safe but not nearly as rich or interesting as in 10,000hz.
maybe someday this album will recieve the attention it deserves. And maybe just like "dazzle ships" it will be finally hailed for the artisic achievement it is.

My Cousin and I LOVE the song Electronic Performers. We like the part where it says ''I Want to Patch my Soul on Your Brain''. I like the songs Electronic Performers, How Does it Make You Feel?, Radio Number 1, The Vagabond, Lucky and Unhappy, and Sex Born Poison.
