One of the better blackgaze albums with hardly any actual black metal elements at all. The songwriting is fairly triumphant and bombastic throughout, being a good example of hard-hitting music that can sound happy and upbeat without getting cheesy. It's a fine line to ride, but select bands can do it, and the results are always fascinating. Astronoid have the songwriting chops to back up such genre-bending decisions as combining thrash metal, dream pop, and whatever else this is. Air almost resembles Melting Sun by Lantlos, if the tempos were three times faster and had catchier sensibilities.
