10 000 Hz Legend is the second studio album by French music duo Air, released in France on 28 May 2001 by Virgin Records and in the United States on 29 May 2001 by Astralwerks. On this album, tracks are longer and more electronic-oriented than on their previous records. These experimentations find the duo expanding their capacities and working with other artists including Beck and suGar Yoshinaga of Buffalo Daughter.

This album has changed my life. I heard about AIR through a song on a QMagazine sampler album for the 'Best of 2001. Every song is wonderful. Thank you AIR for creating the best album I've bought in the past 12 months.

Air has often collaborated with Coppola. Air drummer and former Redd Kross member Brian Reitzell put together the soundtrack to 2003's Lost in Translation, including one original contribution by Air titled "Alone in Kyoto". The soundtrack for Coppola's October 2006 film Marie Antoinette featured a track by Air ("Il Secondo Giorno"). Air wrote and played the music of the album 5:55 by Anglo-French actress and singer Charlotte Gainsbourg, which was released in August 2006  . Main article: Air discography. 10 000 Hz Legend (2001). Talkie Walkie (2004). Pocket Symphony (2007).

Zugar
This album isn't as bad as many people would have you believe. It's definitely a change in direction for the French duo. That said, it's not that great either. Tracks like "Radian" manage to salvage the album as a whole, but others, like "Wonder Milky Bitch" are just awful.
