4 stars Having started with LightDark I was a bit worried at how other NOSOUND albums would be heard. I am pleasantly surprised at how much I like Sol29. It has much more of the feel of the softer side of STEVEN WILSON's PORCUPINE TREE music--the early stuff that I love so much. Also, I was quite surprised by the diversity on this album. As opposed to the near uniformity or constancy I hear and feel from LightDark, eachsong on Sol29 seems to have an identity on its own, a freshenss, too. Where I can see where LightDark came from, I am relieved to see that GIANCARLO has other directions he can (and has) chosen to explore. Highlights for me include the PT-sounding "Wearing Lies on Your Lips," the PF-sounding "The Broken Parts," the LightDark previews in "The Moment She Knew," and, "Idle End" (can't get enough of that outro). My least favorite: the HEARTS OF SPACE theme music, "Sol29." (Please don't go New Age on us, Giancarlo!)

This collection of songs is, IMO, an excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
