Second Life Syndrome
3 stars This is a pretty good album: no more, no less. Nosound has a pretty interesting style, sounding like an even more ambient version of Anathema. The harmonizations are great, and they take center stage. It's as if the band creates one big melodic behemoth, and then the vocalist harmonizes with it. That's about it.

As much as I liked this album, this is no "great addition" or "essential" album. Lyrics? Well, you can't hear them. They are there, but I guess the point is the sound of them and not the meaning. There is plenty going on, but the music ends up sounding "one-note", if you will. It sounds like they recorded everything "flat", too. Take the first track, "In My Fears". It's a great song because the band hits on a really catchy harmonization technique, but that's all it is. It never progresses, and it never changes at all. The rest of the album basically follows the same path.

All in all, this is a good album. It is certainly beautiful. It is worth hearing a few times for the experience of it, but no one will remember it by next year.
