Dauntlessly singing into the void that was left behind since Saturdays=Youth, Gonzalez suddenly surges with overwhelming emotion as the music mounts an invisible precipice. ... Read more in Amazon's M83 Store

Editorial Reviews

2011 two CD release from the Electronic/Dream Pop band led by French singer/songwriter Anthony Gonzalez. Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, NIN, The Mars Volta, Goldfrapp) and including contributions from Brad Laner (from 90's band Medicine) on guitar, Saturdays=Youth vocalist Morgan Kibby, and guest vocalist Zola Jesus, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming is a double-album journey that takes us to the horizon and introduces us to new landscapes. About awakening, craving, and conquering, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming pushes into new vocal territory for M83. Here we see Gonzalez test out different ways of singing, ranging from a spectral breathy whisper to a howling scream.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ok..... January 13, 2012
By Paulie
Format:Audio CD
..at 62 (Dear God..)I have been combing through todays' music like so much rubbish trying to find something...anything...that would take me where I would like to go.

Namely, out of myself, but, at the same time, within myself.

Here it is.

I found it.

5.0 out of 5 stars No-wake zone October 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD
If, as the title states, we are entering dreamland on M83's sixth studio release, then our fantasy is taking place in the big-haired, neon-bedazzled world of the 1980s. And why not? Back then, the American Dream still came equipped with houses.

It's not that this band, formed by French musician Anthony Gonzalez in 2001, has pitched a tent in the '80s-revivalist camp. It's as if this music is being unearthed from the 1980s, and somehow repackaged and taken in new directions with the help of today's technology.

The style employed on "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming" feels like the front end of a burgeoning trend. Gonzalez has a keen sense for melody, which paired with his entrenched connection to ambient and techno sounds, creates something akin to hip-hop; a cut-and-paste form of new wave. "Dreaming," like M83's previous outings, is mostly a synth affair, but the band for the first time employs saxophone, acoustic guitar, flutes and strings to give the album a fuller flavor than, say, 2008's extroverted "Saturdays=Youth."

If all 22 songs were as dense as "Intro," the opening track, the album would be an exhausting experience. The song, featuring the operatic Zola Jesus, is a thick, moody slab of electronic pop with enough dark and light shades to make Brian Eno blush. Luckily, "Dreaming" offers a wide spectrum of hues, right down to the song's antipode, "Raconte-moi Histoire," a light, airy tale about a magic frog in a land where "everything looks like a giant cupcake," as told by a kindergartner.

On the dance-floor cool-down number, "OK Pal," M83 has no peer. It's grand pop like Peter Gabriel's early untitled records -- helped by the fact that Gonzalez's voice is reminiscent of Gabriel, powerful yet ethereal.

5.0 out of 5 stars 80's done right October 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD
A lot of artists tried to do the 80's theme this year, including Beyonce (4) and Lady Gaga (Born This Way), but none came as close to capturing retro electronic synth-pop quite like M83's "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming". If someone told me this album was from 1986 I would've believed them; right down to the airy, soaring male vocals. I'm not even sure if M83's desire was to replicate the 80's, but they could have fooled me! I've never been a huge fan of electronica/techno, usually due to its obnoxious overwrought nature (derivative, loud, etc), but M83 has changed all of that for me. This band pays respectful homage to nu-wave, the likes of Sonic Youth and Depeche Mode, without lapsing into cheesiness; difficult, but thankfully not impossible. This is my first M83 record after I discovered their lead single (Midnight City) on the internet and I have to say the musical journey, so to speak, is worth the price of admission (aka CD).

Primarily, the keyboard work is phenomenal. Blending many different synth waves with traditional instrumentation (sax, flutes, guitar, percussion, etc) is not an easy task and Anthony Gonzalez (composer) does an admirable job. Speaking of instrumentation, 'Midnight City' is not the only track you are apt to find a lovely saxophone solo so keep an eye...uh, ear...out for more. Choral harmonies make an appearance as well, including a children's choir, adding an 'epic' quality to some of the tracks. Personal preference will denote whether this is a pro or con, but I am a sucker for the bombastic nature of a swelling chorus/orchestra. However, make no mistake, this is an album entrenched in nu-wave and M83 offers little reprieve despite taking these compositional risks.

Headphones were invented for sonic experiences like this cosmic voyage from M83 - the aptly named "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming." For the uninitiated, M83 is essentially a one-man act - that is, French multi-instrumentalist Anthony Gonzalez. He does work with frequent collaborators, however. While starting out as a spacey electronica outfit, M83 is firmly entrenched now in the dream pop genre. "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming" is a two-disc album that focuses on how dreams vary depending on one's age. This subject matter is ideal for an artist who is fond of enigmatic lyrics and wondrous aural vistas.

Admittedly, Gonzalez adores the big production style that defined the 80's, but there is nothing excessive in his methods here. His approach is simply necessary to achieve the epic technicolor vision of his trip through subconscious bliss. For the band that gave the world the ultimate dream pop song with "Kim & Jessie" from 2008's "Saturdays = Youth," it's no surprise this effort failed to top that benchmark; however, that matters little since this album is wall to wall with great tunes. While his fifth album was a disappointment overall, this outstanding record reclaims the glory of the 2005 masterpiece, "Before The Dawn Heals Us."

"Hurry Up, We're Dreaming" is pivotal for Gonzalez as he has embraced his singing voice. He sounds like Eric Woolfson of The Alan Parsons Project in spots and Chad Petree of Shiny Toy Guns in others. Up to this point, M83's music has been mostly instrumentals. With all the hushed vocals of his previous work, it's rewarding to hear Gonzalez step out and sing so well. Furthermore, he employs his voice imaginatively on songs like "Claudia Lewis," "OK Pal" and "Steve McQueen" where some may mistake the sounds as a synthesizer.
