10 Songs, 43 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

It's hard to imagine what space-age bachelor pads did before Air's 1998 debut album. Mixing together folk, '60s soul, and French chanson, and balancing vintage synthesizers with muted horns and lush acoustic instrumentation, the Parisian duo single-handedly redefined stylish easy listening. As light as the foam on a café au lait, the album's just the thing for a picnic along the Seine—or Sunday morning on the sofa. And no makeout mixtape is complete without the winking "Sexy Boy" or the dreamy "All I Need."
