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.

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

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.

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.

French duo M83 (Anthony Gonzalez and Nicolas Fromageau) make sonic crescendos out of analogue synths to evoke the kind of electronic post-rock in the vein of Mogwai, spliced with the anarchy of electroclash stalwarts Add N to X and the shoegazing haze of MBV or Slowdive. It's a dinstinctive and winning formula that overcomes its influences, despite there being perhaps one crescendo too many. 'Unrecorded' pits bubbling synth melodies against soaring synthetic strings while 'Run Into Flowers' shows a pop sensibility with its harmonic, half-murmured vocals. 'In Church' and 'On A White Lake, Near A Green Mountain' strip away the rhythm to reveal piercing organs drenched in emotion, while 'America' chops up garbled voices over rollicking beats to alarming effect. The highlights however are the two-piece suite of 'Be Wild' and 'Cyborg', which sound like Jean-Michel Jarre and Vangelis jamming with Carl Craig - particularly 'Be Wild', which wouldn't be out of place on the celebrated Blade Runner soundtrack - and 0078h, a stomping piece of robotic pop in the vein of Add N to X and an example of how to use processed vocals and not sound completely silly.
