Been listening to a couple of 2014 releases that have been sent my way recently. The clear cut highlight so far is Alcest's Shelter, losing the metal aspect did nothing to damper Neige's songwriting. The album is just a big time grower, that takes time for the melodies and subtle dynamics to worm their way into your head. If the single makes you feel uneasy, just wait til you hear the rest. I feel it happens to be one of the weaker songs, and is a little misleading as a representation of the album as a whole.

I've already warmed up to the single, but this is still comforting and intriguing. I'm not sure I could swallow a whole album styled like the single. I'd prefer it to be varied.

I think the single is a good single for the purpose of announcing that this album is full of light, but the shadow still creeps into most of the other songs, albeit subtly.

Well put, and I hope you're right.

I think I'm starting to move past my discontent of this new version of Alcest. I've been listening to that single over and over, and it's definitely growing on me. If his songwriting can just mirror Écailles de lune and not Les voyages de l'âme, I won't complain one bit more about Alcest being all shoegaze.

The Seven Mile Journey has announced a new album will be released in 2014, along with a juicy accompanying announcement that each and every one of their previously released albums will be put out on vinyl starting in 2014 also.

Metal is proof that Satan loves us and wants us to be happy.

I think so too. It will be my pre-2014 AOTY, replacing Triptykon.
