I dig the album, but I was hoping for something more along the lines of Dead Cities, Red Seas and Lost Ghosts. This is good, but I found that Dead Cities was far more intriguing and unique.

I mean, it's not really an M83 album, it's a film score.

I know, and it sounds a lot like a film score. Was hoping for something more unique from them.

Anthony acknowledged this, and said in pretty strong terms he was disappointed too. This was from his latest interview with Pitchfork.

He also mentioned the next score he's going to be doing is for his brother's indie film, and I'm probably going to be a lot more excited for that.

"They needed something bigger, more orchestral; it was hard for me to be told that my music was too indie for the film. I was pissed most of the time, but this is how it works. It's like, 'Take it or leave it,' And I took it."

That interview makes things much more clear. Glad to see he is on the same page. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

Its nice to see him being so honest, seems like a genuine guy. The new single is great, but yea the rest... just sounds like a generic soundtrack to me

Yep, that interview. I really wanted to like the soundtrack because I love M83 as a whole, but it just didn't connect to me. Who knows, maybe I'll give it a few more listens and jump on that Mondo pressing, but most likely not.

Watch the Kim and Jesse video. It's what turned me onto them.
