Air – The Virgin Suicides

        The Virgin Suicides is a score by French electronic music duo Air for the film of the same name by Sofia Coppola. The album was released in February 2000. There was a separate soundtrack released, which included music from Heart, Gilbert O’Sullivan and Todd Rundgren. The album was nominated for Best Soundtrack at the 2001 BRIT Awards.[8] The French edition of Rolling Stone magazine named this album the 49th greatest French rock album (out of 100)

      John Bush: ‘Two years after the arrival of their debut album, the French twosome Air returned, not with a proper sophomore LP, but with The Virgin Suicides, a full soundtrack to the directing debut of Sophia Coppola. Only one track, “Playground Love,” has vocals, and that comes from an outsider (Gordon Tracks) who sounds more like the Auteurs’ Luke Haines than Beth Hirsch, the only real vocalist employed previously. The trademarked Air sound is for the most part unchanged; as on Moon Safari, producers Godin and Dunckel rely on contemplative electronic mood-music in a minor key, heavy on the analog synth and organ yet with plenty of traditional textures (guitar, brass, strings, live-sounding drums) in keeping with lounge music and space-pop from the 1960s and ’70s. And though all the music here is as meticulously detailed as the tracks on Moon Safari,….. . Listeners eager for a second dose of the exquisite electronic pop found on Moon Safari will be pleased with much of The Virgin Suicides, but will probably have to wait until Air’s proper follow-up to find more evidence of their greatness.’
