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.

To say that Air's "Talkie Walkie" is a deception was not what I expected on this page.
This album deserves to do as well as "Moon Safari". There's no question that it's a better record, a different record, written by a pair of supremely talented and greatly improved musicians enjoying total mastery of their studio and sound, who aren't afraid to take risks for fear of offending their audience...
Listen to it carefully, and you may find the beauty within Air.

After a brilliant 10000Hz legend, this Talkie walkie is a real deception. Apart Cherry blossom girl, nobody will remember this album in Air's career. I'm waiting for the next one...

Air, after a few diversions into electronic corners, return to the source of their best material.
Talkie Walkie is indeed their finest album in years and is a welcome return to the style that made "Moon Safari" what it is, a classic in it's own right, an album which has now spent over 200 weeks inside the UK albums chart.
Being quite amazingly surprised by the quality of this recording let's hope that albums like this will keep coming in the forthcoming years.
Wonderful!
