This really is fuckin brilliant. Anyone else fortunate enough to have had this as the soundtrack to their 'summer'?
a little disappointing. Nowhere near as good as Dead Cities or Before The Dawn Heals Us for me.
..but in light of the previous two albums, I feel it's the first time he hasn't taken a step forward.
No doubt if a new band had made it I would think it's amazing.
familiar with the previous two efforts so I'll give them a shot if the general consensus is that they're superior.
that's inspired...keep up the good work sir.
and sounded a lot better live.
That Cargo show was really good.
Morgan Kibby = Hot substitute teacher. Fact!
then you wasted your summer.
so there ;-)
Saturdays=Youth is a good album, but nothing compared to Dead Cities.
I think most of the vocal samples are performed just for the record.
but i can't understand why Before the Dawn... is lauded round these parts so much. I find it SO inferior to Dead Cities that it hurts.
but it's still pretty good. Except for Car Chase Terror.
of listening to it I absolutely loved it, but not so much anymore. Maybe it's because the nights are drawing in.
'Couleurs', however, still rules.
def in my personal top 10 albums of the year
it had about 50 plays within a week of getting it, easily one of the best albums this year for me
And will definitely feature high up in my top 10.
M83's previous albums are spectacular, in that certain 'Two lonely planets attempt to mate' kind of wall-of-sound-oh-my-fucking-god way, but Saturdays=Youth just gives off this *cough* Shimmering Cathedrals of Sonic JOY feeling.
Graveyard Girl = the missing mega hit of the mid to late 80s.
it reminds me of one particular bus ride home one night where i listened to all of it, and it was just an amazing time and moment.
as you say its a brilliant summer soundtrack. I put on on the car stereo and drove to the coast in the blazing sun beams not long ago it was perfect.
