Muze PNote Before this album, the last full-length offering from French duo Air was the soundtrack to the Virgin Suicides. That effort marked so much expansion on and progression from its predecessor (Air's debut MOON SAFARI) that a further push up the mountain seemed a logical expectation for 10,000 HZ. Instead, Air chose to jump off the mountain into a strange, forbidding ravine. You'll find neither the pure electro-pop hooks of MOON SAFARI nor the elegant, surreal majesty of VIRGIN SUICIDES here. Instead, the Air boys offer an insular record thick with ironic self-regard and tongue-in-cheek humor.
Muze PNote Beck is a guest here, and his voice and pomo-slacker sensibility blend right in, but for the most part, Air lets the synthesizers and vocoders take center stage. Listening to 10,000 HZ LEGEND is somewhat akin to sitting in a bar and getting hit on by an android; in fact there's actually some Barry White-style bedroom talk filtered through electronic processing early on in the album. How far you're willing to go with these Gallic pop-bots probably depends on how far they've taken you in the past.

Professional Reviews

Spin (7/01, pp.126-7)
- 7 out of 10 - "...Their very own KID A....offering heavier arrangements, starker contrasts between soft folky orchestrations and hard prog-rock noise, more guest stars, fewer pretty tunes, and several gigabytes of robo-speak....absurd, uncanny and touching..."

Q (7/01, p.106)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "...A bold, chaotic departure from MOON SAFARI's smooth lines, packed with experiments and sonic jokes..."
