A whole group of frogs,
This review is from: Hurry Up We're Dreaming (Audio CD)
This is one of the best albums of 2011 and M83 has reached new heights with his compositions here. Dazzling and at times crazy.
I really like how there is no doubt that this is an album.
Every track fits together perfectly and he takes you on a journey similar to manic depression. Sometimes introspective and clambering for a release from sadness, at other points on top of the world (I have it so I think I am allowed to say this)
Plus the artwork and feeling of the album makes me glad that mp3 still hasn't completely crushed the physical cd yet.
Highlights for me have to be:
-Wait - which is the kind of song that will give you goosebumps - it's somewhat scary and ethereal too. In the song towards the end there are two voices which are screaming out to each other - kind of like they both need to be saved. This is my favourite part of the album.
-Raconte-moi une histoire - which is has a child talking about the effects of psychedelic drugs - it's much cuter and less harmful than that sounds though.
