Best Of 2011: #24
#24: M83 - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming
No original review.
I've never been a massive M83 fan bar the fantastic Saturdays = Youth from 2008, and while this one may not match up to those high standards, it makes a good stab at it. It's a double album with 22 tracks, although 6 are closer to little interludes, and as such it does go on for a bit too long, and has a bit of filler here in there. But there are some great songs on here - for example, Midnight City will get inside your head and refuse to leave, and the Intro song is five minutes of electronic brilliance. The sound doesn't change much but definitely still worth a listen, if you have 72 minutes to spare...
