At this point, it's hard to know what to let go and what to hold onto as a listener of M83, but regardless, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming is a pretty fantastic record.
The end result is an incredibly ambitious and personal effort that shines, sparkles, and thrills. Boston Globe. The album is ambitious and brimming with all sorts of stray ideas, but it's also suited to Gonzalez's expansive gifts.
Gonzalez sings mostly about memories occasionally unintelligibly , but refuses to accept that some dramatic gifts don't necessarily have to be exhausting. Still, the album is full of goose-bump moments.
Austin Chronicle. A single CD's worth on two discs, Hurry Up indulges many watery washes "Wait" but restrains sound collage use "Echoes of Mine" in waiting for another 21st century merry-go-round "New Map". User Reviews. Write a Review. Positive: 38 out of Mixed: 2 out of In today's high tech world where everything and everyone moves so fast and sudden, it becomes harder for me to stay put. Although Internet In today's high tech world where everything and everyone moves so fast and sudden, it becomes harder for me to stay put.
Dead Cities ' "In Church" was the sound of blissful acquiescence, but amidst the swaggering synth-metal of "Midnight City" , Gonzalez hollers, "The city is my church! Gonzalez has stressed Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness as a major inspiration and by extension, its forefather, The Wall , and its influence can be spotted in Hurry Up 's power ballads "Wait" and "My Tears Are Becoming a Sea", sumptuously arranged tracks that could still be played solo on an acoustic guitar.
Thankfully, he didn't retain much from "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" or "The Trial", and rather than one man lashing out at the world from the safety of his own thematic construct, you feel that Gonzalez is trying to connect with it. As such, the moments of indulgence are in service of the album's most endearing and silly emotions: Some might consider "Raconte-Moi Une Histoire" a throwaway because it's "the one about a magic frog," but besides embodying the whiplash emotions of youth by following the magnificent melancholy of "Wait", its almost eerie brightness and Windows era sound effects capture a technological optimism better than a lot of artists who are trying only to do that.
As with any double album, there's a temptation to strip away the instrumental tracks or simply pick the best 50 minutes for your daily commute. But the interludes here are intended to be every bit as purposeful as the singles: The shorter the track, the more evocative its title "Where the Boats Go", "Train to Pluton", "Another Wave From You". While many of them stand as intriguing meditations on their own merits, they reinforce Hurry Up 's intentions to be an immersive universe-- check in whenever you want, but the magic's in the exploratory phases.
Then again, I can't blame anyone who takes shortcuts, since the traditionally structured songs here are some of the most thrilling pop music released this year. The heavily saturated synths Gonzalez favored early in his career invited plenty of My Bloody Valentine comparisons, but whereas pure shoegaze of that nature attempts to overwhelm and obliterate, Hurry Up is like a sonic planetarium, penetrable and totally geared toward enhancing the user experience.
Few artists make more ingenious use of the sheer physics of rock to this extent-- defining which synth pads strike which emotional pressure points, using percussion as explosives rather than mere elements of timekeeping, coiling the tension of a verse to make every chorus feel phenomenally cathartic even without any words. At this point in the year , you'd think a saxophone solo would have lost all the novelty it had accumulated over decades of disuse, yet when one pops up at the end of "Midnight City", it triumphantly squires the track out at the highest point possible.
After a streak of staccato guitar chords and splashy cymbal hits rev up "Reunion", the shouts from its chorus could come from a soccer stadium or a speedboat chase.
