French Electronic Duo Air new release- Love 2; Love it or dissapointed?

Hi Guys, I have been looking forward to Air's new release called "Love 2". I am downloading it now...after listening to the previews, I hear alot of similarities to Talkie Walkie and Pocket Symphony and also hear some new textures. It will be fun to see how this one is received.
I will post more impressions soon but would love to hear from any of you that have given it a listen all the way through. If you love it, whaddayalove? Don't like it? I would like to hear about that too. Pretty mixed reviews on itunes...
Here is the itunes link (which has some extra material and a short documentary),7f46376,8065531
Here is the Amazon link for a few less bucks...

What do you think?

Over all I am digging the new Air release. I think that it might be one of those "creepers" that grows on you slowly and then you wake up one day and it's your favorite record.
There is one thing that I want to comment on though; I usually refrain from artistic criticism because for the most part it is useless. I mean, it's one person's opinion through their exclusive set of filters. What good does that do everyone else? I sure don't know...Anyway that being said, here goes. On the intro to "Do the Joy" at 1 min 24 sec, a static speaking voice starts and not only does it
hurt my ears but it adds absolutely nothing to the song. I would love a version without this as it makes it un-listenable for me. I still think they are brilliant, just missed it on that one.
