Hurry Up, We're Dreaming (Mute)

Deregulation under the Reagan administration proves the 1980s were no dream. Frenchman Anthony Gonzalez thrives on the era's bourgeoisie New Order, programming a new millennial mind eraser of New Age raves. Sixth spectacle Hurry Up, We're Dreaming lights up like a Times Square billboard, 1,000 individual lights: the euphoric tribalism of Frankie Goes to Hollywood ("Reunion"), big-top Ratatat ("This Bright Flash"), and even echoes of ancient Alan Parsons Project ("OK Pal"). A single CD's worth on two discs, Hurry Up indulges many watery washes ("Wait") but restrains sound collage use ("Echoes of Mine") in waiting for another 21st century merry-go-round ("New Map"). Don't walk into the light. (Sat., 5:35pm, Orange stage)
