R One of the most beautiful cover artworks ever. I think it perfectly depicts the dreamlike melancholic feelings Alcest evoke with their music.
Favorite track: Autre Temps.

Apokatastasis My favorite Alcest album. I still don't understand why so many people dismiss it as an Écailles de lune rehash. If anything I see it as a perfection of the style introduced on that album. Hope we get a CD hardcover book of this soon. Favorite track: Là Où Naissent Les Couleurs Nouvelles.

Aaoka Ai Alcest fill a space essential. The structure of each song is always mature and coherent. You can hear the dedication to the craft in their always moving blackgaze.

about

The quintessence of Alcest

"Les voyages de l'âme" ("The Journeys of the Soul") is Alcest's third album and contains the quintessence of the group's creative work to date. While "Le secret," the debut EP from 2005, was the key to the world of Alcest, "Les voyages ..." unites everything that characterises Alcest in terms of concept and music. While an epic composition such as "Là où naissent les couleurs nouvelles" would have found its place also on "Écailles de lune," "Beings of Light" with its blazing character reminds of the ground-breaking "Le secret." On the other hand, "Autre temps" – the album's first single to which there is also an impressive and visually stunning video clip – is a prime example for the melodic and catchy side of Alcest that initially came to the fore on the band's debut album "Souvenirs d'un autre monde." Something that is common to all of the songs, however, is the predominant feeling of euphoria and bliss, always subtly overshadowed by melancholia and yearning.
