I'm surprised that you didn't show up in the latest LARP, considering your look after the shaving

I personally need some pancy music every now and then, it's the trap to get girls to think I'm a sensitive guy or something.


"Girls liking sensitive guys" thingy is pretty much a modern myth, and actually quite counter-productive, from my own experience. Good stuff if you want to be the chick's best girlfriend, though.

And screw Alcest haters (both Joe and Marcel), Neige is brilliant, even borderline genius I dare say.
Just wish this damn artwork didn't have a bloody bird on it...

I'm not an Alcest hater, Le Secret is one of my favourite EPs of all time, and I can totally understand why people like them, but Neige, a genius? You have to be off your tree to think someone who's ripping off 20+ years of shoegaze music a genius.

That's what gives Alcest fans a bad name. I love the sound, and I love a lot of his work, but he's literally the furthest thing from a genius. I mean maybe he's got an IQ of 170 but musically, just no. He's good at mixing atmospheric black metal with shoegaze, and he's a good artist. But that's about it.

Call me when he writes his own "Symphony No. 9".

Ah, the joys of reading comprehension fails.
I said the guy was borderline genius, which is quite a difference from being a... full-blown genius, if you will. It means there are hints of genius in him that show every once and a while, without being dominant.
Ripping off shoegaze? Sure, you can say that, but I look on his work as creating a fairly unique metal/shoegaze mixture, which was pretty new at the time. Not so much a rip-off as using two already existing styles and joining them together into something new.

Well, that is a bit of a dumb argument, no? There are plenty musicians regarded as geniuses in their own fields who never wrote "Symphony No. 9".

Although, knowing you, that was prolly some jolly old sarcasm.

Ya it was a bit of a sarcastic dig. I don't think he's a genius though, not even borderline. And that's coming from someone who loves just about everything he touches.

People who call people "borderline genius" = fanboys who secretly know that the people in question are NOWHERE NEAR genius level and are trying to cover the fact with understatement. My comprehension is tenfold.

And you think Neige was the creator of that area of music? I think you'll find that the likes of Bergtatt era Ulver, In The Woods... and Joyless were responsible for laying that groundwork, just so happens the moniker of "blackgaze" was only a mere twinkle in the eye of a hipster somewhere at that point. People assume: new phrase = new genre! Clearly that's not the case. Meshuggah are djent now, they were called progressive post-thrash and what have you only a few years ago. What Neige did was more of a refinement taken from those and other progenitors than anything else.

Not even vaguely close. I'll admit to being a fanboy of certain bands, but Alcest (and thus Neige) is, to use your method of writing, NOWHERE NEAR that mark.
But yeah, I imagine your innate powers of prophecy and generalization tell you more about me than I myself know.

If you say so. I don't hear the kind of sound Alcest has in neither Bergtatt nor In The Woods (not familiar with Joyless).

Could Alcest be more girly? I think not.

Are you denying that Fairlyland is the most METAL! concept ever devised?
