CRITIC REVIEWS

91
Pitchfork

Above all else, it's the best M83 record yet.

86
Beats Per Minute

It shows an artist at the top of his songwriting game, but perhaps without the thick and palatable sense of cohesion definitive and prevalent on past releases.

80
No Ripcord

It’s a sweeping, expansive album, that covers a lot of ground and leaves the listener satisfied.

80
Consequence of Sound

Although Dreaming sports slower, more introspective ballads, there’s also a pantry’s worth of interstellar jams, chock full of sounds you’ve probably never heard before.

70
musicOMH

It possesses some of M83's most varied material to date, yet still functions as a coherent body of work.

67
A.V. Club

For an album of such impressive scale and nanoscopic attention to detail, Dreams leaves a surprisingly light impression.

50
Drowned in Sound

Here the impulse is more towards the portentous, Fairlight-raddled, heart-on-sleeve vacuity of mainstream Eighties transatlantic rock-lite than the soaring-indie stylings of Saturdays

The world nowadays force us to live on our own expectations, it prevents us to letting our child side of going out, We are just little worms, hidden on our cocoons, forced to hide our emotions, into ourselves, It's almost impossible to feel in the actual society, we have so much weight over us, and expectations that the world builds over you are insanely heavy. But sometimes, we need to find our wonderland, a place where our soul side can be at its own, we need to be fascinated by the ... read more

euphoric sounding expansive music, some lovely moments but some awful and pointless tracks too

Hurry Up, We're Dreaming allows one to be happy and appreciative of everyday life. M83's synth-based pop is grounded, but sophisticated enough to stimulate. M83 makes pop that sounds like the EDM-pop we hear on the radio today, so while his music is expansive enough for someone of any age to enjoy and therefore ultimately universal, it doesn't try to hook you in by senseless melody or throwaway lyrics. It's the composition itself that leaves you in awe, searching for more.

Waiting for a wo-o-o-rd
Looking at the milky sky-line
The city is my church/ The city is my church
It wraps me in its blinding twiliiiiiight

I don't know if I'm the only person to say it, but I have a feeling this is a really important album and we're just not feeling it yet. It's expansive, combining chillwave with this arena ambient pop, emotional, and (I'll use this awkward word)- epic. It's like a painting, like a totally abstract and surreal movie! With powerful songwriting, lush instrumentation, nostalgic retro production and unbelievable this feels like a masterpiece. It's intense and joyful or intimate and heart-breaking ... read more
