Alcest Les Voyages De L'Ame on Limited Edition Colored LP
Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Les voyages de l'âme ("The Journeys of the Soul") is French dream-pop exemplars Alcest's third album and it 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 characterizes the group in terms of concept and music. While an epic composition such as "Là où naissent les couleurs nouvelles" could have also worked 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 is a prime example of the melodic and catchy side of Alcest that initially came to the fore on the band's debut Souvenirs d'un autre monde. Common to all of the songs here, however, is the predominant feeling of euphoria and bliss, always subtly overshadowed by melancholia and yearning. Limited edition colored vinyl pressing with gatefold packaging and poster.
