Beautiful album, not very metal admittedly, a simple album but perfect just for what it is...

Well, it's ok... Not liking the fact that they sold out with this release. Going from crafting a beautiful dichotomy of Black Metal and Shoegaze to just decent post rock music is a bit disappointing.

Changed my mind on this, i initially found it quite bland and dissapointing but after a fair few spins its really grown on me, great album.

I saw these guys supporting Opeth last November, they encored with "Delivrance", which is an absolutely beautiful track-both on record and in a live setting. My dad ended up applauding the bassist and commenting how fluent the music sounded.

I've since given this album a few listens in full. Honestly, I've concluded that it seems to be a more seamless record than 'Les Voyages de L'Ame, just not by much. I guess my personal highlight is "Delivrance", though "Opale" is a great track too.

Shelter and Délivrance should have been the only tracks here.
