Then one day i was scrolling through songs on Youtube (as you do) and found it!!!
i was amazed at how good it sounded and couldn't believe the uplifting vocal driven masterpiece of the song..
so i immediately started searching the rest of there music, to then find Midnight City and was sold.
i brought the album from amazon there and then, just for those two songs alone
once the cd arrived i decided to listen to the full album from start to finish, and my GOD im glad i did
i was instantly hooked on like 6-8 songs after one play
this is my favourite chill out album for when im feeling in my own bubble
whether im happy, sad, angry etc i listen to this album, on the way to work, thinking about the past, dreaming about the future i listen to a couple of songs and i feel warm and happy inside.
this album is one i would recommend to anyone but only some will understand the passion and effort that has gone in to making these song. M83 have blown me away and i will always have a place in my heart for this album
i love everysong so i wouldnt like to pick an choose but there are certain tracks that i enjoy more than others for personal and emotional reasons.
this album is amazing, thanks for taking the time to read my opinion on this and i hope you atleast give this album a listen... it really is worth it!!
Like other M83 offerings, it offers the usual fast rock and roll with keyboards tracks (This Bright Flash, New Map), interspersed between long slow instrumentals, usually sounds of synthy organs and piano, seemingly in a cathedral, some desperately moving inexorably towards crescendoes (Another wave).
Lots of good stuff get thrown in: more AG vocals, ballads, some fairly pop-minded ditties, RnB basslines and doowopping, horns, cowbells.
Virtues: definitely CD1. Both CDs are strong, but the tracks 'intro,' 'wait' and 'midnight city' really set the table. CD2 is slower, more inward looking. The arrangement of tracks is also superb -- like a good rollercoaster, with big thunderous highs. Ends beautifully with 'outro.' To this ear, not much filler.
Best tracks: Intro, Midnight City, Steve McQueen, Wait, Outro
On the minus side: The packaging is a little underwhelming and the imagery has a Donnie Darko vibe, which is fitting but only in a cheesy, formulaic sort of way. Like the last LP (Saturdays = Youth), it recalls the artificial nostalgia of teenagehood, and new- and dark-ness of teen angst. Also, not sure about 'Raconte-moi,' which plays on AG's more theatre-pop seen elsewhere (e.g., Before the Dawn's Car chase terror); it's certainly possibly a situational like, but sounds like a commercial for life cover.Read more ›
While we wait for the new recording, double album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is M83’s 6th album (and to date the last) with a total of 22 tracks (count ‘em) and released in 2011. While some of the tracks time to normal length of 4-5 minutes, Gonzales is not afraid to drop a short 90 second idea on you either.
The out and out hit of the album is the slightly dance trance but also distinctly retro 1980’s style of Midnight City. The track is apparently the theme tune to the TV series Made in Chelsea but please don’t hold that against it. The track is about Gonzales’ observations of LA and is probably one of the more lively tracks on the album.
The song that has more of an impact for me is the first one, the magnificent Intro with its lush electronic but orchestral aspiration. I don’t want to drag Moby into the discussion but that similar sense of grand ambition is there. The guest vocals by the most excellent Zola Jesus add to the image I get from the song of a sweeping staircase in a mansion. The end track Outro has a similar (and equally successful) grand ambition.
Wait is another solid track with a nice flowing and lush musical electrolica fronted by a rather sad and lonely vocal. Raconte-Moi une Histoire panders to my enjoyment of the obscure by having a very solid musical score set against a child telling a tale about a frog.Read more ›
