M83 have long been mentioned in the same breath as Ulrich Schnauss - listening to this excellent second album it becomes clear once again just why these comparisons have been made. "Before The Dawn Heals Us" is the sound one would imagine Mr Schnauss producing had he more or less got rid of his electronic demons, immersing himself fully in a mesh of guitars and weaves of feedback levelled out by that rarest of electronic conceits - vocals. M83 certainly bring to mind the euphoric, epic arrangements Schnauss is so fond of, while their admiration for the production values of My Bloody Valentine seeps through every pore of this fine record. Well worth a listen.
