You're missing out on a lot dude. Ambience and metal were meant for each other.

I can see the potential but so much of it sounds too sludgy for me. Lacks that stormy reverb

Strangely, this album is what I need in my life right now. Warmed up to it over the past few nights.'



wizard you are the weirdest person ever



also, now that I started noticing the production on this album it has turned out to be nearly unlistenable for me :/

What's wrong with the production? It's way better than on anything else he's put out

Whenever I hear the crackling on the title track I just flinch

I have not heard any crackling - you sure it's not just a bad download?

Yeha the original 320kbps that leaked before release is not a good dl. I got it off itunes as well after it came out and it sounds a lot nicer.



I can see what you mean about the thinness fish but it's actually a lot thicker mix than his past albums. I couldn't even listen to Souvenirs on headphones it was that bad

I have listened to it in V0, 256kbps, 320 kbps, MP3 lossless and FLAC formats with different headphones and on different devices



Also, Noctus told me he also hears it which is one of the reasons he gave it such a low score

I don't know if you guys are just deaf or what



the crackle is mostly overbearing during the first part of the song with the waving guitars before the piano starts



even at low volumes it is horrendous



I'm skipping it every time now

No, only on Shelter and L'éveil des Muses



and I've acquired every single copy I could find and they all sounded like ass



As I said, Noctus hears it too and as far as production goes he's pretty much the most knowledgeable person on sput

I don't hear any type of crackling in those songs. And L'eveil des Muses is my fav song on here too so maybe if I listen hard enough I'd hear it but I have nom problem with it.
