Novocals please?

Obviously, I am a little annoyed by the vocals on the album. The problem doesn't lie with the voice or style, but his weak pronunciations of the English language. It kind of gives me an uneasy feeling with the singer when he is struggling at singing another language.

This is an Italian band influenced by Pink Floyd, Brian Eno, Porcupine Tree and Sigur Ros (taken from the band's bio). Anyone that is interested in the for mentioned bands will like something in Nosound's music.

The atmosphere that the influences have in their music carried on well through Nosound, and it is their most puissant feature. The densely layered samples, soothing bass and simplistic drumming give the album a relaxing mood in its entirety, but to discredit the band, do not expect anything twists or surprises. Special mention goes to the title track to the album. The track is the epitome of beauty, containing some of the most delicate and calming moments that I have ever heard.

The album is good for background music, a sunny day or a long drive. Without the vocals I would think better of this album, but there is always time for them to get better.
