From ‘Opale’, the album continues with a consistent musical approach, a more polished and bright recording than previous releases, leaning heavily toward a ‘wall-of-sound’ production, and herein lies my disappointment with the album. Alcest were always interesting because they created a metal-infused style of shoegaze, with many traits of the black-metal genre supplementing their sound. Black metal is not for everyone, not for the majority of people even, but Alcest played major-quality shoegaze and by incorporating a much heavier style, yet still postitive in tone, they had managed to carve something completely different out of the genre. The ability to reflect light and dark to the extremes within one song was always captivating.
With ‘Shelter’, Alcest have embraced a ‘fully-shoegaze’ direction; the album is made up of beautiful, positive music. Whilst this will be a step-forward in mainstream ability, it feels like a step-back in terms of the identity Alcest were still in the process of creating. I understand the move; it’s a good time for Alcest to do this. They’ve been going long enough to have garnered something of a cult following, and a cult-following will always be open minded to changes. There is an aspect of trust in the artist; the genius. There will be those, like myself however, that get a little lost on the way.Read more ›
If you are hooked by any of the above musical name checks but include a distinctly French soft lilting and moody chanteur, and... enjoy having your ears tuned into a world of catchy, guitar effects-laden drenched lead lines, that alternate as modern Coldplay-like punchy melodies, filled out with emo rock choruses, then, give this album a try; it is a journey into the author's fairy world and great great escapism!
There was a even a point when the quality of song writing belied the relatively unknown status of Neige (Stephane Paut) and would be surely worthy of some mainstream success in the hands of more established acts. My worry, therefore, is that this album will pass into the oblivion of shoe gaze history without recognition similar to Pale Saint's The Comfort of Madness.
Ps. The album was produced by Sigur Ros's Birgir Jon Birgisson, known as "Biggi", at his Sundlaugin Studio in Iceland.

If you are coming to this because of the metal background that Alcest had, forget it...
