    Back to topic, I think M83's new album cover matches the title and what this artist's aesthetic incorporates.

    What about this frog? Its a very tiny frog. But its also very special. You can only find it in the jungle, so far away from here.
    But if you find it. If you touch it. Your world can change forever.
    If you touch its skin, you can feel your body change.
    Your vision also. Blue becomes red and red becomes blue.
    Your mommy becomes your daddy and everything looks like a giant cupcake.

    Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.

    Not so much lyrics but spoken word done by a child over one of the tracks.

    Yeah, his change in vocals is the first thing I noticed. Not sure how I feel about it. Enjoying the album thus far though.

    My official review before listening to it is based off of Brandon's initial review: BOOO. I will keep you updated when I actually listen to it.

    I love it.
    It's wide-eyed, childlike and ecstatic.

    I understand that you don't like it but I'm afraid I also can't help not caring.

    That's why they need to bring back Foster the People as a diversionary tactic.

    The Foster the People hate is more doofy kneejerk posing-masquerading-as-opinion.

    Their debut is a very good record and after seeing them play a club back in June I can report that they are a very good live act.
    But oh noes their song became a massive hit and what will people think of my insecure ass if I like them now omgz!

    One of the best things about being 70 years old is that you lose those insecurities and can just like things without worrying about some completely fraudulent and convoluted hipness scale.

    I like the Black Keys and what they've become just fine, but I was perfectly happy to have them help clear out the Mojave during Cut Copy. That's all.

    That's like Mumford and Sons fans calling the haters hipsters, it's a tired and unimaginative argument. I actually like Pumped Up Kicks, it's very catchy. Why I hate Foster the People is because of that Houdini song. It is the most shameless rip off of another song I've ever heard before (youtube it and then youtube MGMT's Electric Feel), and for that they can go fuck themselves.

    Cut Copy's set was packed.

    Anyway, I like this album despite the way he sings on it. Not sure where I would rank it though. We'll see after a few more listens.

    Oh please. Because there isnt anything at all tired about pretending that a claim is invalid just because you've heard it before?

    Im not saying that the two songs dont have cosmetic similarities but how many people claimed Cut Copy ripped off Men at Work on the last record? Now Im not some raging FTP superfan or anything but I seriously doubt THAT is the reason you hate that band.

    And Im sure all of your media critiques are completely self-contained and not at all governed by outward appearances.

    If "Pumped Up Kicks" hadnt blown up like it did, you might still have the same opinion of "Houdini" but I suspect it would have raised your ire far less.

    I'm really surprised. This is what that Saturdays=Youth bullshit should have sounded like.

    Now if his live shows become less sleep inducing, I'll shit myself into seizures.

    I think newer fans will like/love this one and the older fans will not. Essentially it's a complete genre change to happy-go-lucky dream-pop. The 2 minute long interludes are the only hints at the old expansive M83 sound, and the slap bass, sassy vocals and the tasers and lasers and phasers really kill it for me. The childlike description is accurate, but I don't feel like that is a good thing. This feels childlike in the way you would describe something amateurish to be childlike. The production on a number of tracks feels completely wrong, Morgan isn't anywhere to be found on this thing, and it's just too...happy. I mean, you could argue that Saturdays was happy, and that it sounded very reminiscent of the time period it was mimicking, but that one at least felt genuine. These may not be bad pop songs, but what they aren't are good M83 songs.

    Son, I am disappoint.
