    it gets better toward the end, but man...what was that? As said above, I was waiting for someone to tap me on the shoulder the whole time I was listening. I'm scared now.

    I'm really surprised by all the dislike here of "Do It, Try It" – it's definitely a departure from the last album, but I'm excited by that more than anything. M83's strength is obviously the shamelessly epic stuff, but Anthony's been doing that since Before the Dawn Heals Us, right? At this point, I'm totally down for a no-fucks-given LP, for better or worse.

    JMJ produced again, and you can hear him and Anthony enjoying themselves, so I have a feeling that was a mandate they instilled early on in the writing/recording.

    Also, I'm crazy excited that M83 will be my first ever show at Red Rocks in May

    Not sure how I feel about this new song, but at least I feel *something*. The last M83 album bored me to tears.

    Ok now THIS is a fantastic track. Instantly I like this one way more than Do It Try It. Gorgeous track.

    Agreed, but still not what we're looking for. This seems it's not going to be as much a mix of their dramatic/dark stuff coupled with pop, just their take on straight pop. Hope I'm wrong.

    It has leaked.

    And it's not good.

    The whole album is basically like, he took all the fun cheese factor from Midnight City and ramped it up to 15 while sucking all the joy and fun out of it, making something incredibly awkward and cringeworthy instead. Theres a handful of standout tracks, but for the most part, I honestly don't see myself coming back to this album.

    Unbelievably huge let down of an album. Hopefully seeing M83 play these songs live will change my opinion on it? But I don't know. I don't see why anyone would want an entire album that sounds like the Whose The Boss theme.

    M83's performance at Coachella was AWESOME (at least by watching it on the live youtube stream Friday night). They only played Do It, Try It & Go! from the new record b/c their set is shorter than their headline tour, but Go! at least worked really well live. Do It, Try It is still a pile of shit though. The older material (primarily Hurry Up... though) still kicks ass. Kaela Sinclair's voice is no joke....def. a solid replacement for Morgan Kibby. She can wail.

    The vocoder on that song: perfection! Instant standout.

    I'm loving the new album, and can't wait to crank it to deafening levels during many a summer drive. I know the warm weather will only make me love it more.

    I keep coming back to "Laser Gun" lately – it's a great companion to "Go!" The Susanne Sundfør track gets better with each listen.

    I'm really digging the album minus "Do It, Try It." It's funky and fun. It's not as good as the last two albums but still a blast. "Road Blaster" is the best.

    Finally got around to listening to Junk. The tracks that dial down the sugary sweetness just a bit are really good. I think it's a little too long though. Shave off tracks like Do It, Try It and a couple others, and you'd have something really good, but as it stands, you have something that doesn't quite work as a whole.

    It's clearly their worst album, and thats including their sdtk work for me. I feel like even if you like it (and i hate it, although watching some of the songs live online they worked better), everyone acknowledges it's their worst release. It's kept me from seeing them live since it came out, and M83 was one of my favorite live acts prior. Bum out.

    Everything he has written in that post leads me to believe that this is the album that I wanted instead of Junk. I'm excited.
