For whatever reason this one just isn't clicking with me. It feels a little too "removed" in the sense that the music takes on an a backing effect as if written for specific scenes in a drama film. Neige's ethereal vocalizing is off-putting at times as well, mitigating what little intensity manages to creep through during the more metal-infused moments. There's less of a balance and more emphasis on the gazing aspect, which is fine depending on your mood, but after three chances trying to connect with it, I think it's safe to say this is probably my least favorite Alcest album to date.

Atmospheric, melodic, with some powerful and absolutely beautiful moments. A truly amazing release.

One of the best of the year, for sure.

Love it. Really nice mixing of the lighter vibes of their newer stuff with the traditional Alcest sound.

When I listened to the first two video clips I was sure that this is going to be the album to top Écailles De Lune. I was dissapointed when I listened to the rest of the album. Full of fillers
But yeah "Protection" and "Sapphire" are two of the best Alcest tracks.

Couldn't have said it better. Also my least favourite Alcest album. I even prefer Shelter.
