Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (1/22/98, pp.54-56) - 3.5 Stars (out of 5) - "...a truly obsessive hommage to easy listening, a sublime Eurocheese omelet....fits in with European confreres like the High Llamas and the Divine Comedy: orchestral pop that mixes the acoustic with the synthetic..."

Spin (9/99, p.144) - Ranked #50 in Spin Magazine's "90 Greatest Albums of the '90s."

Spin (1/99, p.91) - Ranked #5 on Spin's list of "Top 20 Albums of '98."

Spin (2/98, p.108) - 7 (out of 10) - "...this French duo offers up a sort of weightless trip-hop exoticism. But rather than pillage the usual African or Brazilian sources, Nicolas Godin and Jean Benoit Dunckel--tubas and Moogs in hand--travel deep into the cheesy heart of whiteness, cannibalizing Muzak, Italian soundtracks, and lounge..."

Entertainment Weekly (2/6/98, p.62) - "...this French duo works the territory between sleazy blaxploitation grooves, naive rave-culture idealism, and pop songcraft. Though the melodies occasionally threaten to become saccharine,...Air leaven it with a welcome dash of Gallic irony."

- Rating: A-

Q (10/01, p.56) - Ranked #31 in Q's "Best 50 Albums of Q's Lifetime"

Q (12/99, p.100) - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."

Q (2/02, p.104) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...[This] glitters like diamonds....its twisted dreaminess confirms a triumph pf music over strategy."

Mixmag (1/99, p.49) - Included in Mixmag's "Ten Best Albums Of 98" - "...beautiful easy listening with 70s synths [and] vocoders....The chill-out sound of nine-eight."

Melody Maker (1/10/98, p.37) - "...MOON SAFARI is their lush, joyous, oxygen-filled voyage to a thrillingly non-specific destination....a dream of a record."

Q (Magazine) (p.150) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[It's] proved remarkably enduring, still dreamlike and wistfully evocative..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.64) - Ranked #27 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "[A] perfectly realised melange of electronica, filmic expanse and autumnal folkisms."

NME (Magazine) (1/17/98, p.38) - 8 (out of 10) - "...neo-symphonic bliss-outs for the next Generation Next. For the Jazz Club in space...a floaty, widescreen and spiritual music that updates The Beach Boys' instrumental odysseys..."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.82) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[MOON SAFARI] remains exquisite, a pure, glacial pop moment....Utterly faultless and untouchable."
