Alcest-Écailles de lune
2010
Blackgaze

One of the first times I listened to this record was when I was under the influence of a cocktail of various ADD meds/Antidepressants/Antipsychotics/Neurotransmitter replenishers/Anti-Seizure medication/Anti-anxiety drugs in order to find some sort of curate for my depression and anxiety, and was also asked to meditate. This album is the first album I successfully meditated with, however instead of focusing on the breathing I was focusing on the wonderous "Fairly Land" soundscapes (as I do not speak the French language, in spite being a quater descendent) Neige had conjured within his dreams. One of the few times I felt relaxed, and (somewhat) at peace in a long time. The album hits home with a blend of Post-Rock/Shoegaze/Black Metal that produces a stellar wall of sound everyone should experience. Corny story, but sometimes the mood the music strikes along with the music itself may cause an increased appreciation of an album.

The trifecta opening is practically flawless when in a certain state of mind.
