M83 — Hurry Up We're Dreaming

Reviewed by yewknee

After my disappointment with Saturdays=Youth, I wasn't expecting much from this double LP. Anthony Gonzalez seemed to have moved away from the foreboding and shoegaze soundscapes into total pop territory. Much to my surprise, it seems he was able to blend the two styles for this undertaking. In fact, if you imagine that Saturdays=Youth never existed this seems like a much more intelligent follow-up to Before The Dawn Heals Us.
