Biography

With these soft spoken words on the simply-titled opening track--“Intro”-- M83 mastermind Anthony Gonzalez introduces us to his sixth record and first double disc album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.

Dauntlessly singing into the void that was left behind since Saturdays=Youth, Gonzalez suddenly surges with overwhelming emotion as the music mounts an invisible precipice. ... Read more in Amazon's M83 Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a warm wave of electronic fuzz 11 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
Some say this album is inspired by shoegazer bands. I say "yes" to that statement, but it is only modeled after the effect the wash of synth/guitar noise has on the human mind. "Dead Cities, Red Seas, and Lost Ghosts" is intense, dark, warm and soothing all at once. This is the first album of 2003 that envelops me upon first listen. For fans of: Sigur Ros, My Bloody Valentine, The Postal Service, Boards of Canada, Manitoba "Up in Flames", Jesus & Mary Chain, Air.

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year 14 Jan 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I discovered M83 entirely by accident browsing on th web one day, but boy what an accident.
Taking it's cue from dreampop and expanding upon it with influences as far reaching as ambient electronica, eighties funk and Samuel Barber/ Gustav Mahler-esque symphonic string arrangements, M83 transcend the comparisons they attract ("My Bloody Valentine meets Air" yawn) and create a rich tapestry of yearning beauty, epic melancholy and sweeping catharsism that is all their own.
This is one of the most beautiful records I have ever heard and, being a sound engineer and owning about 500 albums, for me that is really saying something.
I doubt it will be to everyone's tastes but to me it is definitely the record of 2003.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very hard to Explain 6 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
I revisited this album last night after I'd bought it and confined it to my rack for over a year, and realise that I'd been listening to it all wrong. Previoualy I'd had it on it the background or in my car and you really can't do it just ice that way - this is an album that has to be concentrated on. I whacked up my Hi-fi do a decent volume, turned all the lights off and lay on the floor for a while listening and it was amazing. After 6 tracks I thought angels were coming down to earth and caressing me with invisible hands...well something like that anyway. Don't make the mistake I made and slot it on your Ipod as you walk to Tesco, but really try and listento it and you'll be rewarded

5.0 out of 5 stars Electronic lushness 25 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is excellent and I have only had achance to listen to it a few times.Thier sound is lush by constantly building layer upon layer of effected synth sounds and guitars underpinned by electo style beats.If you like a cinematic styled sound with emotional strings or just want to experience electronic beauty I would recommed this album.The best track is definetley the third track on the album which for me has shades of Orbital with the pulisng synth sound and rolling electro beats.Beautifull.

4.0 out of 5 stars epicness 22 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have to say the same as a previous reviewer. this album is not to be used as background music. it requires you to sit down with the intent to do nothing but listen.

im not sure how i discovered M83 but im glad i did. this album will create all sorts of visions in your head as you listen. perhaps best used on a long train journey, as you look out the window the music just seems to match somehow.

fully worth a purchase.
