From 2000, the soundtrack to The Virgin Suicides is the second album by the French band, Air.
I wasn’t the only one who really loved Air’s first album, Moon Safari, which I’m listening to as I write this. I was buying lots of CDs at the time, so I figured I’d grab this one as soon as I saw it on. After one listen, I put it away thinking it was really… heavy, and not really enjoyable.
I was right. It is really heavy. I sat here at my desk listening, though, as I wrote, and it was surprisingly good to have on in the background while I did other things. I admit I was kind of uninspired by the idea of listening to it again. That’s why I did it as soon as I could, but it was better than I expected it would be. I’m not sure I need to hang onto it, though. We’ll see. Good? Sure, but not great.
