I'm sure I'm alone in this, but this album is growing on me quite a bit. Sure, it's not what everyone expects from M83, but it's still pretty damn enjoyable.

If you don't agree, S my D, MFs.

Sometimes I forget there's one song on this album that I like.

I'm bummed people don't like the album, but I get why. Very different from what people probably want from him, but I'm still really happy with it for what ever reason (that reason being that I'm happy with any new M83, regardless of style or quality. Ironically, an M83 song is on a commercial on TV as I type this). Go's definitely a great song. Anyways, I don't know why I feel compelled to continually defend this album, I TOTALLY understand why people aren't liking it. That said, it'll probably end up on my year end list. Really wish I would have gone to his/their recent concert here. I sometimes almost hero worship certain bands I've never seen live, or haven't seen live very often.

M83 are definitely one of those artists who seem to release music that's right up my alley I can't find much wrong with, regardless of quality. So many good memories and history with his/their music.

I love M83. I defend them even at their most lyrically inane or musically ostentatious and they certainly push those limits often.

But Junk just feels like a genre exercise to me, a celebration of a time and place (that I had no access to), rather than a collection of excellent M83 songs with a specific set of influences. Go! is awesome because it's a naturally enjoyable M83 song that also fits into the theme of the album. To me, it's as good as much of Hurry Up We're Dreaming.

I totally understand what you mean w/r/t defending albums that you know lack appeal in certain areas. I'll always defend The Life of Pablo, but I know why some fans would hate it or be disappointed by it.

Yeah, I definitely understand where you're coming from and respect your opinion. You and Bonoz2012 are awesome music fans with good taste and I'm really glad you're both still posting here. I'm probably semi-drunk (or totally drunk), but really mean that. This thread is so fucking nostalgic for me. So many awesome kickass mother fuckers have posted here. I miss you all.

Haha, I would have guessed high. I love you, mofo. Keep posting. But take recommended breaks every 20 minutes.

An added bonus of defending unpopular albums to the death: occasionally, occasionally you'll enjoy the delicious taste of victory when time passes and everyone realizes they were wrong.

Basically how I feel about King of Limbs.

I'm enjoying Junk as well. Can't say that much about it though. It's just a nice listen.

I'm with mofo on this one. I enjoy the album a great deal, even if I haven't been able to go back to it as often as I'd like. It doesn't reach the level of Hurry Up or Saturdays = Youth, but that's a high bar.

I can't even finish it . I really like some parts of it, but there's nothing I love and a couple of tracks I just fucking hate. I'm trying, Mofo. I am. For you.
