AIR stands for "[[FunWithAcronyms Amour, Imagination, Rêve]]," which translates to "Love, Imagination, Dream." The band are often seen by critics as the second best export of electronic music from France (after Music/DaftPunk, of course).[[note]]Or third, if older critics name Jean-Michel Jarre, a notorious 70's ElectronicMusic pioneer, who is also one of Air's main influences.[[/note]]

Air continued to craft their sound with 2004's ''Talkie Walkie,'' which was a much brighter take on their recent efforts, and also saw the duo put more emphasis on [[StepUpToTheMic their own vocals]] (as opposed to their use of vocoders in earlier works). Praised by critics as a return to form, it had some help in the production from Nigel Godrich (of {{Radiohead}} fame) and spawned some of their most famous songs, such as the single "CherryBlossomGirl" and "Alone In Kyoto," the latter of which gained fame as part of the LostInTranslation soundtrack. 2007's ''Pocket Symphony'' saw the band add Japanese instruments to their repertoire, reemphasize their roots in ambient soundscapes, and collaborate with Jarvis Cocker from {{Pulp}} and Neil Hannon from TheDivineComedy. 2009 saw the group make their first full-length album at their new studio, Atlas Studio, with the title of the album being ''Love 2.''

* RecordProducer: The band have occasionally collaborated with [[{{Radiohead}} Nigel]] [[{{Pavement}} God]][[Music/{{Beck}} rich]] for their albums, and also produced CharlotteGainsbourg's ''5:55'' (Dunckel in hindsight blamed this for ''Talkie Walkie'' occasionally having what he felt was "rushed" material).
* {{Sampling}}: "Remember" uses the beat from "Do It Again" by TheBeachBoys.
* SweetDreamsFuel: Often applies to the lighter, dreamy side of their music.
