3 stars Contrary to Bonnek's opinion of A Sense of Loss, I find the music here quite different from LightDark. The recording of acoustic instruments is more clean, less treated, more in the front (drums, guitar, piano). What is, unfortunately, the same, is Giancarlo's voice: delivery, treatments/effects, and message. "Some Warmth to this Chill" and "Fading Silently" both allow Zito's drums to significantly jazz up the music (though, I'm not sure it works: it causes a kind of dissention in the music; as if one part of the group is trying to say one thing while the other is on a whole other wavelength. Interesting. ). "Tender Claim" and "Apology" do sound as if they were remixed rejects for LightDark, and "Constant Contrast" sounds like it came from one of BRIAN ENO's early ambient, or proto-ambient music albums. But, in "Winter Will Come" I believe NOSOUND has again created a masterpiece--a piece of music that draws me in and holds my attention along with playing with my mood strings at a very deep level. The song that makes this album worth owning.

A 3.5 star album. Do I rate it up because it is "an excellent addition" or down because it is "good but not essential"? Better yet: go back and listen to LightDark!
