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

last saturday night at the party kelly, sitting, facing that violet tree, staring at me. I'm getting closer. She stands up.. 24 Oct 2005
By Patrick W. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
M83, the eclectic French group who startled the musical world with its breakthrough album "Dead..," twirl fantastically in this release of early tracks, with less polished and more thought-provoking assaults on pop sensibility. At times nostalgic, at times brilliantly vicious, this album is candy to both the M83 faithful and the uninitiated, those who stumble upon the band in a quest for good computerpop. I cherish "Dead.." as challenging and care about "Before the Dawn," though it's simpler, less melodic and less startling. "M83" is, in my mind, M83's best work.

The songs mount from gently rolling pastoral soundscapes to peaks of ecstasy. Sharp in its audacity and fluent in subtlety, M83 got it right the first time. Expect something philosophical, emotional, raucous, and ultimately uplifting; expect gorgeous epiphanies with hollow, degraded undertones, and piercing thoughts demanding recompense for a life of easy victory as bland as coleslaw. Its "Fitter, Happier" meets Four Tet in a 19th century dive bar. Perfect for a night of bloody knuckled wine drinking by the fireplace.

Best of Three 23 Mar 2006
By J. Grasso - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Looking to try out some M83? Try this first. Excellent synth sounds, dreamy rhythms. By far the best of three albums released to date.

An acquired taste 29 Dec 2005
By Tommy M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is reportedly a re-release of their first album from 2001, which didn't get very wide distribution at all. It's also a much different beast from Before the Dawn Heals Us. First of all, there are no proper vocals in any of the tracks -- only snippets of dialogue and a computerized voice popping up here and there. Where Before the Dawn felt like a blend of pop rock and retro electro, this veers more towards experimental mood noodling, with the last track clocking in at over seventeen minutes as they meander from one sound scape to another.

There's nothing that feels like a proper song -- which isn't a bad thing necessarily, it's just not nearly as gratifying as Before the Dawn (or Dead Cities, for that matter). They take more stylistic risks with less ambitious instrumentation, but it doesn't have that spacey soulfulness that they've managed to cultivate since this album was recorded. If you simply must have more M83, then you'll probably find something to like here, but don't come crying to me if you feel a little confused and disappointed.

M83 - M83 10 Mar 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
M83's eponymous debut showcases all the melodic skill and dynamism that made their later albums so powerful, even if it doesn't have same polish or emotional depth. But, as an introduction, it shows what's to come. "Night," with its combination of rock growl and electronic backing, has all the hallmarks of their incipient grandeur. Their predilection for epic soundscapes becomes apparent on "Facing That" and on the quietly majestic "Carresses." The simple, elegant "Violet Tree" slowly comes to a grinding finish, while "Slowly," the only track with a 4/4 beat, wells up out of nowhere to pound some club energy into the album. Even the weaker tracks show some promise, like the dark country-western electro vocoder of "Kelly" or the meandering "She Stands Up." The glorious "I'm Happy, She Said," has an elegant sweep and build to it... a grand harbinger of the future.

M82 18 July 2009
By IRate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This fine warm up to what would become the full-bodied embrace of their synthesized sound cannot quite capture the production depth of future releases but still comes across as a very competent amateur release.
