iTunes Review

2011’s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming was a gargantuan album to add to the canon of gargantuan M83 albums. Junk is rather different, but no less thrilling. Out go the blown-out anthems and in their place, nostalgically candied pop, disco and soul gems. It bobs merrily between gloriously indulgent (“Do It, Try It”, “Go!”), gloriously silly (“Moon Crystal” sounds like a ‘70s TV theme), and deeply romantic (“For the Kids”, “Atlantique Sud” and "Sunday Night 1987”). “Solitude”, meanwhile, is gorgeous, cinematic and blessed with a spellbinding keytar solo. It’s that sort of album.

Customer Reviews

Certainly not junk!

I previewed Sunday 1987 and I really couldn't believe how beautiful it was. It was so layered and went everywhere I wanted it to go. It's got such a warm feeling to it and is so perfect. I sampled a couple of others and immediately knew this is something truly special. I haven't even listened to the whole album but went and got the vinyl on a whim. From the rest of what I've heard it's so melodic and interesting and very beautiful. I can't wait to hear it all. Also the cover has muppets and hamburgers on it so there's that!

FRESH

This album is something new. Love the vibe. Love the sounds. Love this album. Sounds like an artist stretching that is stretching their creativity. I don't understand the hate. It's a great example of a an artist being different without losing what makes them unique.

Well done!

I feel that this album is an excellent follow up to "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming", carrying the sparkly, night-time grooves and synth landscapes from that album, but in its own, unique way.
Personally, my favorite album will always be "Dead Cities, Red Seas, & Lost Ghosts", but this album still carries within it the general IDEA of M83. Listen to the composition and his usage of the synths, not exactly the sounds. Anthony is still the same artists he's always been, he's just channeling his abilities as an artist in a different way each time, through different reasons.
This album has a smooth flow, and i think it's easy to listen to if you can survive the honky-tonk piano in the first track, almost like a bad work-out tv show's background music from the late 80's, but GENIUS nonetheless.
