16:27 - !J.O.O.E.! I recall that Bismuth now, mostly due to the nice artwork. Would be so much better with some proper guitars or additional effects to give it some depth. I think bass-only bands will only ever be a novelty, bar the odd exception.
16:23 - LuciferOfGayness Yeah its underwhelming that most of the new music isnt added. Bismuth was probably on of the best doom releases last year and still isnt here [link]

Neige strikes again. Yes, the bloke from Alcest who apparently believes it's his sworn duty to make sure as many bands possible are working together towards achieving his vision (a perfect shoegaze/post-rock black metal album perchance?), is here too, but only handling the vocal duties and not contributing to the songwriting itself. If you expected Écailles De Lune number 2, you might be slightly disappointed.
The relaxing sections, Niege's vocals and the songwriting of this release is in my opinion what makes it worthwhile. It is such a shame that the album is over so quickly which left me in a bittersweet state, yearning for more.
