This is original,
This review is from: Dead Cities, Red Seas And Lost Ghosts (Audio CD)
I am going to disagree intensely with the previous reviewer, anyone who considers this "noise that doesn't go anywhere" would be best prescribed an ear test, or a better hi-fi. However, M83 can indeed not really be compared to Air. Their music has more depth and lacks popular elements, which lets face it have been worn thin over the last 25 years.
This is music to be listened to and enjoyed on its own, a contamination of analogue synthesis and digital samples that stimulate the ear intensly. The notes might be simple and the arrangements childlike, but this does not detact from the soundscapes created.
Make no mistake; this is not pop music, it is music that jumps off the CD and into your ears
