M83's eponymous debut showcases all the melodic skill and dynamism that made their later albums so powerful, even if it doesn't have same polish or emotional depth. But, as an introduction, it shows what's to come. "Night," with its combination of rock growl and electronic backing, has all the hallmarks of their incipient grandeur. Their predilection for epic soundscapes becomes apparent on "Facing That" and on the quietly majestic "Carresses." The simple, elegant "Violet Tree" slowly comes to a grinding finish, while "Slowly," the only track with a 4/4 beat, wells up out of nowhere to pound some club energy into the album. Even the weaker tracks show some promise, like the dark country-western electro vocoder of "Kelly" or the meandering "She Stands Up." The glorious "I'm Happy, She Said," has an elegant sweep and build to it... a grand harbinger of the future.
