Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - p.67
3 stars out of 5 -- "At 31 minutes, this set is double the film's length, so alongside score instrumentals like the twitchy trip-hop jaunt 'Sonic Armada' is nonfilm filler like 'Seven Stars,' a piano-driven countdown..."
Entertainment Weekly - p.72
"[T]heir grandiose score will make you glad that this silent film isn't silent anymore." -- Grade: A
Alternative Press - p.94
4 stars out of 5 -- "On the gentler tracks, piano and flute create relaxed, meditative moods....For Air fans, it's a vital addition to their catalog."
Magnet - p.50
"Air matches the movie's wonder-struck tone shot for shot, the duo's stylized sense of modern-retro somehow sounding quite at home against the film's aged, crackling backdrop."
Billboard (p.28) - "Victoria Legrand of Baltimore's Beach House appears on the album's most tuneful cut, 'Seven Stars'..."

Product Description:

Director: Georges M‚liŠs.
Thanks to projects like the Virgin Suicides soundtrack, Air's Nicolas Godin and Jean-BenoŒt Dunckel are no strangers to film music. Still, opportunities such as contributing to a piece of film history like Georges M‚liŠs' silent sci-fi epic Le Voyage dans la Lune are rare, and the duo makes the most of it with this original score. Here, the music Air wrote for the 15-minute film is expanded into a full-length album that preserves the shorter version's narrative structure, and expresses the film's equally whimsical and eerie visuals as well as its colonial undercurrents. The duo's retro-futuristic, psychedelic score -- which is especially trippy on cuts such as "Sonic Armada" -- is as true to Air's vision as it is to M‚liŠs'.
