M83 is my favorite band. If music is about expressing emotion, M83 is the best band in the world. Whenever I listen to them it's like I leave my body. It sounds cheesy but it's true.

Saturdays = Youth isn't Gonzalez's best, but it is still a great album. "Skin of the Night" is a spectacular song.

As far as albums are concerned, I still hold that Before the Dawn is their best. I like nearly every song on the album, even if some are short and kind of shallow. All their albums are great, though. "Slowly" (off the self-titled) has always been my favorite M83 song.

Quick tip , if you are looking for a band who's name is too short for the search function just type the name of an album by them instead.

I'm just listening to Saturdays=Youth...I'm really not sure what to make of it yet, apart form perhaps resenting God for playing such a cruel joke on me. The 80's are back, with a vengeance...what's worse is, I think I like it. Oh woe is I...

M83 wasn't as good as I hoped, but they're ok.

Had my first listen of Saturdays = Youth, its quite nice. Very much an 80's feel to it, the guitar and piano pieces are gorgeous. Could do without the maaaaaassive outro though. Couleurs is my fave track at the mo.

I like the album "Before the Dawn Heals Us", but "Saturdays = Youth"
is the best of two IMO, tell me, are the other albums worth getting?

I think they're pretty good. Apparently their entire catalog is going to be released on vinyl come early November, which doesn't really thrill me too much, seeing as how I assume their albums are mixed digitally. Besides that, I enjoyed the first few songs of Saturdays = Youth, but there's just too much filler in that album, especially the very last song which lasts 11 minutes and its just dead space.
