The soundtrack to a bustling city at dusk. The textures that M83 created on their previous album is cleaned up and given more of a mainstream appeal; a blessing and a curse. Despite the many useless interludes and mini-songs, Before the Dawn Heals Us remains a diamond in the impressive discography of the French synth superstars.

fav tracks: Can't Stop (standout), Teen Angst, Car Chase Terror!, Lower Your Eyelids To Die With The Sun

I just can't get into this style of shoegazing and post-rock. I just can't. I'm being completely subjective here, I have no hatred for those genres, I have a lot of respect for them, it's just difficult for me to truly appreciate them.

" * " However...........is probably the greatest song M83 has ever made..........that's worth something at least.

I initially gave this an 85. I love this album much more than my last listen because of my growing love of dream-like music. M83 is definitely one of the better bands in that type of music, and this album is a strong evidence to that. Before The Dawn Heals Us is such an exhilarating experience, I can't see why you would hate this album. Only issue is that some songs kind of ruin the slow tone of the album. Despite that, this album is one of M83's best work yet.
