In the days of single digital downloads, the first question you might ask of Anthony Gonzalez’s latest album is why a double album? Gonzalez, who records as M83, dares us to dive in and listen to the sprawling canvas that is “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.”
“Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming” has critics gushing. Patric Fallon at XLR8R calls the album “utterly remarkable” and notes that it’s trajectory is “a complete roller coaster ride, one fraught with the highs of both driving anthems and neon pop hits and the lows of somber balladry and choral hymns, not to mention a few inexplicable interludes that provide some much needed breathing room between each rise and fall.”
Pitchfork’s Ian Cohen call the album “the best M83 album yet.”
What do you think? Give “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming” a listen.
