Remastered 180-gram vinyl reissue

The Virgin Suicides is a score by French music duo Air for the film of the same name by Sofia Coppola. The album was released in February 2000. There was a separate soundtrack released, which included music from Heart, Gilbert O'Sullivan and Todd Rundgren. The album was nominated for Best Soundtrack at the 2001 BRIT Awards. The French edition of Rolling Stone magazine named this album the 49th greatest French rock album (out of 100).

This French duo gained inclusion into the late-'90s electronica surge due chiefly to the labels their recordings appeared on, not the actual music they produced. Their sound, a variant of the classic disco sound coaxed into a relaxing Prozac vision of the late '70s, looked back to a variety of phenomena from the period — synthesizer maestros Tomita, Jean-Michel Jarre, and Vangelis, new wave music of the non-spiky variety, and obscure Italian film soundtracks. Rhino will be releasing reissues on heavyweight vinyl, remastered and with all original artwork.

"Listeners eager for a second dose of the exquisite electronic pop found on Moon Safari will be pleased with much of The Virgin Suicides..." — AllMusic
