I haven't been a real AIR fan for long, since I only recently found out about the group. I had Moon Safari for a few years and really enjoyed the mood of the album. On a fluke, I sampled 10,000 Hz Legend followed by a prompt purchase. For me, this album has a different feel altogether from the Moon Safari. That isn't to say that one is necessarily better than the other. The track "Electronic Performers" really set the hook for me. "How Does It Make You Feel" slows it down a bit, but it has a hilarious ending, in my opinion. "Radio Number 1" is one of the catchier tunes on the album, followed by a great performance by Beck with "The Vagabond." "Radian" starts out with an eerie electronic tribal sound that transforms into a great piece, almost without you realizing it. It's a very intriguing song. "Sex Born Poison" is probably my favorite track on this album. It starts simply enough, continually building on the initial theme to the point where goosebumps are felt from the strong chords and high pitched melodies accompanying them. I recommend this album, even to someone who may not be a true fan of AIR, because of the broad range of talent this group displays with "10,000 Hz Legend." A must have for any electronic music fan.
