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.

*This album will not do anything to get you out of bed and force you to start your day, I suggest a hungry dog for that. Your results may vary.
I think you first have to like this type of music, which is a bit hard to define... kind of a post rock, electronic arrangement that is sprinkled with just a little 80's flavor (but not nearly enough to make it annoying like a lot of the stuff out there). "Midnight City" and "Reunion" are the obvious standouts... and the videos are pretty cool too. "Wait" is my personal favorite.
My only gripe is that the order of the songs could have been a little different. I won't make suggestions regarding what order I think it should, because you should form your own opinion, with the exception of "Raconte - Moi Une Histoire" (followed by "Train to Pluton", as they 'fit'). I like the song, but it kind of disrupts the flow for me.... might have been better toward the end of the album.
I tend to be very critical when looking at a collection as a whole, because, as long as it's in a genre you like, you can always find at least one or two songs you like. That said, there is a thoughtfulness to this album and a mood to each song that warrants four stars.
