    Neige comments: "Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde came out ten years ago, in 2007. It's crazy to witness time flying by so fast. It seems like the album was released only yesterday, yet so many things happened in the life of Alcest during this period of time. My young age and my somewhat lack of experience at the time gave 'Souvenirs...' a strong, genuine approach, along with a characteristic sound. It's a concept album that didn't have any other purpose than pure artistic ambition and didn't follow any pre-established genre. All of this gives it a really special place in my heart and is probably also why it's still one of the proudest moments of my musical career so far."
