3 stars I described this album to my friend in a text message: "This is an album that metal fans would rip to their friends and then enjoy behind closed doors." The Old Alcest is gone. The Juxtaposition of black metal infused with an almost trace-like beauty of shoe-gaze is gone. The black metal element is no more- which is a huge let down. Perhaps this album is akin to Opeth's Damnation- a one time experience of the band's softer side, but I believe this is the new direction of the band. The music is beautiful, but the range- the dichotomy- the juxtaposition- the old Alcest is no more. 2.5 stars
