Chiming in with another "sounds great" comment. Absolutely fantastic and an all time classic album.

If you have an accurate/authentic copy of this 2004 initial vinyl release, it plays as clear as a bell. I'm certain if you cross check the etchings, barcode & identifiers, many complaining of 'noise' will have bought a later version, possibly counterfeit in some cases. This is a superb clean pressing...

Made in the E.U. Pressed in Germany, I believe. Sounds great!

Just bought this album for €9 :). New, sealed.. It's sounds great. High quality recording and pressing. Its true it has some surface noise, but I don't find it really disturbing. There's some noise on the CD as well.

There was something about Talkie Walkie that really struck with me upon first listen back in 2004.

I was already a fan of AIR, but after the first few listens to this LP I fell kinda in love, and it continues to this day.

It brings hazy memories of childhood that I never really experienced (and yeah, I know people say this shit all the time about bands like BoC). Perhaps it was helped by the fact that I was in my early 20's, a quite odd time I think in a person's life as they are filled with nostalgia while looking forward at the same time.

Every song on this album really evokes soft, warm thoughts in my mind. Well, perhaps all except the cheesy Alpha Beta Gaga. That was used to death in television, so it's hard to take personally unlike the rest of the album.

Everyone seems to gush over Alone In Kyoto, and yeah it's a beautiful piece, but for me it's all about Run.

It's like a drug that I can return to once in a while, never addicted, but always happy to experience. Such a lush, velvet feeling.

Overall, the album has those sensations. Warm, inviting, soft, familiar.

One of my favourite albums of all time.

Just as the others 2015 Air's reissue, this sounds truly amazing. Great work.

Alone in Kyoto sums up this album like no other track can on this. Beautiful stuff.

My copy has awful surface noise even though it looks (and is) very clean.
I'm not sure if anyone else has this problem?

TALKIE WALKIE sees a welcome return to form for Air, much closer in spirit to MOON SAFARI than 10,000 HZ LEGEND. "Venus," for instance, has that beautiful, drifting quality that made MOON SAFARI a classic. "Cherry Blossom Girl" continues that trend, as does "Universal Traveler" and the instrumental "Mike Mills." And despite the odd syllablization on "Universal Traveler," the vocals on TALKIE WALKIE are passable (although I do miss guest vocalists such as Beth Hirsch.) "Alpha Beta Gaga" leans more towards the prog-rock that unfortunately weighed down 10,000 HZ LEGEND, but it's sufficiently buoyed by its whistling melody. "Alone In Kyoto" ends the album on a gorgeous, almost ambient, note. Air has done plenty of soundtrack work and that attention towards mood shows here. Let's hope they continue to grow in the right direction.
