It's good when bands grow past their initial sound, but that's not always a safe thing to do. In Astronoid's case, it kinda makes them lose what made them stick out in the first place.

Black metal..? Shoegaze..?

I found this genre tag really strange too. Shoegaze certainly but black metal, unless it's on the band's debut effort, I just can't hear.

Got the album. I really do enjoy it because it's that perfect stuff that you can just put on in the background and just lose yourself. However, it's quite a step away from Stargazer and Air and I kinda miss it. Air had a lot of tracks that I loved, while on Astronoid I think there are only a few. Of course though, I'm not finished with it but I do really like "I Dream In Lines" and "Water" currently.

I feel at this point, Blackgaze is a mislabel especially on this album.

I'd say this band was actual blackgaze only on their first two EP's. Air still has some black metal elements such as prominent blast beats and the odd dissonant riff, but the atmosphere is so uplifting it became something else entirely, and is one of the most refreshing albums I've heard in a long time. I highly recommend it.

I liked Air, so I'm definitely gonna listen to the new one.

I can tell you that this album strays a bit from Air and you'll hear that after the first three tracks.

Meh... the departure from Air is just too much. What is good is often cancelled out by boring vocals.
