3 stars Keystone three star album; it's no worse than good, but not a must-have.

Yes, it is very post-metal that does its job well, but the way I feel about this Alcest project is this; it follows every ''proper'' protocol of the post-metal genre in the metal, post-rock and shoegazing qualities, but it does not stand out because simply put, it's just good. There are some parts of the album that blow me away, nothing makes me cringe, but a lot of the stuff here is what I would call ''relatively vacuous''.

I still love the second part of that ninteen minute title track and especially ''Solar Song'', and they're two of the main reasons why I give three stars in the first place. And I really enjoy the overall tone of the album; melancholically dark. But I honestly feel that ECAILLES DE LUNE is nothing special, so I won't say much more. If you're a fan of the genre, you could use this in your collection; if not, no harm done. I hope Neige releases more albums in the future to prove me wrong or get me excited, but right now I am not fully enveloped by this.
