Classic evergreen. One to have in the living room. Pretty enjoyable

The definitive pressing. Huge soundstage, quiet pressing, and fantastic songs, make this an essential purchase.

Air's debut album is a lovely slice of retro-futuristic synthesizer-based lounge pop that would be just as at home at a laid-back party as it is for quiet listening with my Sunday morning coffee.

My copy of this pressing is tremendous, by turns punchy and quiet in all the right places with a wonderful warm quality to the bass. Perfect.

One of my favourite albums. All I need is sublime. Played on a Technics 1200gr with an audio technica moving coil cartridge it’s fabulous. It’s a great demo track for instrumental separation. There’s a lot of guitar work that can be missed on some decks.

The sound is flat on my klipschorns and same with my AT headphones ...
I'll try with another original copy from 90'th

I believe I got this version, but it came without the hype sticker in the front and it doesn't have a download code inside. Anyone else?

Sexy Boy is as mind blowing today as it was decades ago.

Just received a new copy today. Great pressing - fully agree with all the other comments here. Great price too!

Excellent product quality, rich sound with very low noise, and no warping; received in perfect condition.
Sound quality is beyond excellent—same if not better than Spotify's extreme quality version.

All artwork is very vibrant and faithful to the originals. Front cover artwork does seem to be slightly cloudy though. Rear cover and inner sleeve artwork is of high resolution with minimal/no pixelation.

I would 100% recommend this issue, the 2015 Air reissues are great. A fantastic album.

Sounds great! Clean flat pressing with a nice sound stage. It has a full, warm and rich sound and at a great price.
