Over the course of the past few years, Neige has been not-so-quietly making a name for himself in the black metal scene, working his way through the likes of Mortifera and Peste Noire before contributing to - perhaps - his first real "experiment": Amesoeurs. An experiment that ended in name only...

Rating: 7 I loved Ecailles de Lune, but this one sort of grows stale by the 4th song or so. The poppy shoegaze elements get kind of nauseating at times. It's kind of like pouring far too much brown sugar into your oatmeal or something.

Not surprising considering your current love affair with Falloch.

Not at all, and I wouldn't be surprised if you really enjoyed this album as well. Dream pop, shoegaze, post-rock, and just a dash of overly cheesy atmospheric black metal.

I've been spinning this one a lot, not sure if it's on par with Ecailles or not...

I think this pales in comparison personally - its overly fluffy atmosphere detracts from the songwriting, while the Lune's atmosphere is more supportive of Neige's creativity.

  It is very boring havent heard anything boring like this one form the band
ThunderAxe1989 - 22.09.2012 at 23:39  
  Absolutely gorgeous!

Rating: 9 The release is incredible. I miss the harsh vocals though...

Rating: 7 Nearly a year old now, still sounds very insubstantial to me. Great way to start your appreciation of that black metal aesthetic though, it's very easy listening.

Rating: 8 Very good stuff, one of the best from 2012 for me.
Seita - 05.02.2013 at 06:25  
  One of the most over-hyped and overrated artists/albums I've ever heard. The melodies are very blasé and predictable and the whole thing just reeks of 90s alternative rock; seriously, how can people call this innovative? Shoegaze used to be huge - Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, Chapterhouse, Ride - although the fad died and it seems it's been resurrected through pseudo-black metal artists and, unfortunately, these guys can't come up with any original melodic sensibilities whatsoever, they just plagiarize it from artists who have already crashed and burned.

Rating: 8 Nice album but a bit too soothing for my taste. Even occasional harsh vocals don't change the atmosphere that slowly lulls you to sleep, which is... Not necessarily a bad thing but not something I looked for in this album.

Rating: 7 I don´t know, I think that this album is good , this work is the first alcest's album that i listened , but recently , i listened Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde and Écailles de lune, and definitely this album no have the true essence of the band that they transmited in the past works , the songs are simples and don´t have a good sequence that Écailles de lune ...I don´t know if this band is good or not ...:(

It's one of the questions which nobody can give you a definite answer. However, if anyone thinks that he can... fuck it, It's only your decision.
