nebulous noir This album ignited feelings in me I never thought I could feel. Les Voyages De L'Âme speaks to me on variety of different levels. It evokes strong feelings of joy but somehow also longing and nostalgia. It's warm and resonant sound makes it very clear that Neige intended for the listener to feel like they were in the glory of summer, the time of year when everything is most vibrant and alive.
He has succeeded..
An essential masterpiece and gift from the magnificent world of Alcest. Favorite track: Autre Temps.

Andy A lot more sweet than sour but Alcest do them both in tandem very nicely indeed. Favorite track: Les Voyages De L'Âme.

Daniel It is full of astonishing melodies, yet it reflects an extremely dark under current. It is just amazing. I highly suggest it. Favorite track: Là Où Naissent Les Couleurs Nouvelles.

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.
