Definitely the first time I've ever heard French referred to as the language of the dream world (:

The longer tracks on this still go by in a breeze, they are thoroughly engaging the whole way through, no wasted time.

I can't really fathom that they made another genius album in this style. I didn't think these things happened in real life.



A lot of things point to me being dreaming, though.

Digging: Camel - Mirage

This whole album is a dream. Blew my expectations out of the water.

Digging: Thou - Tyrant

I wrote the metal band Alcest off after Shelter, for reasons I don't understand anymore. I really thought it was a permanent change of style.



I was probably traumatized by Opeth hahah

Haha that's understandable. I didn't know what we'd get either, but I gained massive hope as the singles started coming out.

Only listened to Je Suis D'Ailleurs prior to the release, and that only once. Made me really excited, but listening to the whole thing when it came out was something completely different. I was sold when the first chorus of the title track kicked in...

Title track is beautiful. It almost feels like a statement after Shelter to say they can keep that dreamy shoegaze sound, expound on it and be successful without the dynamic of harsh vocals that fans yearned for when Shelter came out.

And then delivered the harsh vox anyways in the other tracks, geez Alcest just stop winning my heart over.

Haha no kidding. Plus, the harsh vocals here are as good or better delivered than they've ever been, imo. Such a great contrast to the softer parts and perfectly compliments the rest.

I agree about the the delivery, I noticed that kind of howl at the end of a lot of the screams, it really adds a lot to it.

The screams on here remind me of his work with Lantlôs. They sound much more inhuman than on, say, Écailles
