AIIR is the eighth studio album from British neo-soul, funk band Sault.
A sequel to their sixth album, AIR, the album was one of five initially released for free via digital distribution in November 2022 (along with 11, Earth, Today & Tomorrow, and Untitled (God)).

Writing for The Daily Telegraph, Ali Shutler reviewed all five simultaneous releases by Sault and gave them a collective four out of five stars, noting that AIIR follows from the earlier Air that "conjures anxiety and paranoia through orchestral soundscapes".

In an overview of the best music of the week on All Songs Considered, NPR considers the five releases "as sonically diverse as they are ambitious in their breadth and scale".

Damien Morris of The Observer reviewed all five albums and scored them five stars, noting that "anyone can find their own five-star classic among these 56 songs" and summing up that "it's clear that these albums are an act of supreme generosity, not indulgent superfluity".

Writing for Gigwise, Luke Winstanley called the collective releases "an absurd achievement" and scored this album eight out of 10, calling it "another sumptuous classical effort [following Air], essentially functioning as a sequel or companion piece [that] presents a more focused, leaner and less indulgent collection than its predecessor".
