    General CommentThe only thing that I can add is that Mike Mills is an American video producer, and created the "All I Need" music video with Air. How (or if) the song actually relates to him is anyone's guess..

    Beautiful song, though.

    General CommentThe song has three sections. The 4/4 first section has a very plain synth sound play the wandering "theme" of 16th notes. This is pleasant enough, but it's rudely interrupted by a piano, also playing 16th notes but over a 9/8 time in an insistent, repeating pattern. The listener struggles to resolve what has happened, partly because some percussive sounds haven't changed since the opening, echoing the 4/4 section. The song "recovers" in the third section, as the piano is suddenly gone, and now the original synthy+guitar background is back. Soon enough strings enter and hint at the start of the song. The strings take a little time to graduate to 16th notes, but when they do, they are playing the original wandering theme. The plain vanilla analog synth that started the theme has been replaced by organic, human orchestration, and it's remarkable and beautiful.

    This song is a beautiful morning, interrupted by a rude thunderstorm, returning slowly to beams of sun until the full glory of the day is with us.
