An amazing album. A Boards of Canada meets indie guitars.. Some beautiful soundscapes and some good rock outs too. A beautiful album

It's got a fantastic cover. (Few things are more beautiful than City scapes at night) and sounds alternately like Pink Floyd, God speed You Black Emperor, Sigur Ros, State of Grace and most intriguingly like the instrumental between tracks on This Mortal Coil albums. It's music scrambling to attain a higher level of meaning or existence just through the sheer beauty of its sound. So yes, it's all those critical clichés encapsulated onto one album. It's lush, ethereal cinematic, but most importantly some of the songs are simply stunning in their wide screen intensity, effortlessly attaining a level of corporeal vigour or humane tenderness using the mainly electronic instrumentation.
This is effectively a solo work, Anthony Gonzalez having split from his long time collaborator and friend Nicholas Fromageu, but rather than forcing him to curb his ambitions and look within it seems to have expanded his horizons and now it seems he's stretching as far as he can, trying to lay his hands on all those vistas in his head. Employing choirs, muscular live drum tracks, huge banks of swirling guitars and interweaving between pure instrumentals and vocal pieces some of this music is Wagnerian in its scope and apocalyptic ambience. The multi tracked vocals on opening track "Moon Child" recall Vast,s audacious use of samples while "Don't Save us From the Flames" has a thrilling propulsive grace allied to it's banks of keening vocals. "In the Cold I'm Standing" sounds quasi religious with its colossal swathes of organ uncoiling like tentacles. "I'll write my love on a thousand weeping willows" sings the breathy vocalist on "Farewell/Goodbye" a ballad of such fervent ardour it seems to infuse the air with misty tears.

Very good, but a bit melancholy, not their best, but not their worst either. Still work getting though if you are a fan.

When I saw the impending release date of this album, I knew I had to have it after having enjoyed 'Dead Cities,... etc' so thoroughly. I was hoping for more of the same sweeping, simple dance and electro-rock cross-overs that it had on it, for example the flawless 'America.'
Upon placing this into my CD player, I have to admit, I was a little shocked. The album starts with 'Moonchild,' a simple distorted piano and vocal sample track that was ever-so different to the sounds of the first. When this was followed up by the single 'Don't Save Us From the Flames,' I felt my fears were almost confirmed. It's fundamentally a pop song albeit one of the most original pop songs I've ever heard as it mixes the creativity and originality that seems common to all good french artists with the freshness of electro-rock.
But I persevered and I'm glad I did. Any of the tracks on their own may have left me dubious but as a whole this album is almost an electro-opera, ranging from the Kevin Shields style 'I guess I'm floating,' to the fantastic 'Car Chase Terror' which never fails to make all my hair stand on end. This album shares that quality that made their second album so note-worthy.
With this release, M83 show us that it is possible to combine frenetic energy with scouring emotion in the same track without ever needing to compromise their own intrinsic style.
I can already say that this is going to be up there in my top five albums of 2005. Don't leave it out of your music collection.
