5 stars Listening diary 6th February, 2021: Alcest - Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde (blackgaze, 2007)

After returning to my vinyl collection, I gave this one a listen in a tense post-rehearsal mahjong session with the rest of my band. Alcest have always been one of our biggest influences, even to the point of over-influence, but this seems to be the one of their classic albums that we're least keen on. I still like it though, even if it's nothing on the two that followed. More subdued and romantic, and honestly there are enough good melodies here to forgive the relative lack of dynamics.

8.4 (14th listen)
