NoSound biography
NoSound was started as a one man studio project in late 2002 by Giancarlo Erra (also a founding member of the Porcupine Tree tribute band Redshift), but has since become a band for live performances, the current line up is Giancarlo Erra (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Paolo Martellacci (vocals, synths, keyboards), Alessandro Luci (bass, upright bass, keyboards), Paolo Vigliarolo (acoustic guitars) and Gigi Zito (drums). The first NoSound live performance was in April 2005. NoSound take inspiration from early Porcupine Tree, No-Man, Pink Floyd, Sigur Ros, Bark Psychosis and electronic/ambient music. Despite the large number of similarities between Nosound and Porcupine Tree and No-Man, NoSound's music has its own unique feel and sound.

The first official NoSound release was Waves on Russia (2002) which is described as 'about an hour of electronic and instrumental music' after this NoSound started work on what was to become their debut album Sol29, a demo EP was released as a preview of this album in 2004, most copies were sent to magazines, record labels and radio stations but a limited number of copies were made available to fans. Sol29 was released in early 2005.

Review by admireArt

3 stars In this second studio album, NOSOUND still are redfiining, polishing and freeing themselves of the obvious Floyd's inheritance. Something that will happen later, in retrospective (I started my NOSOUND aquaintance with the 3rd. album). A blend between NO-MAN's passionate lyricism and the "new" Floyd's spacy and hurting atmospheres. These guys pull it off, far beyond mere performance, they save the day with good and original song composition. Creative musical ideas, that seem like the slow musical section of any Prog-musician from Heavy to Folk, taken outside their definite context and turned into an atmospheric new-born song. I insist, what makes this 2nd project worth the try, has to do with good song writing. (And a completely unobtrusive vocalist, who withholds his talents in favor of the song , which in my book, adds up points). This band, in this "Lightdark" are still finding out their own language, when they get there, they sound amazingly unique and worth the visit. ***3.5 PA stars.

Review by Memo_anathemo

5 stars Without a doubt, a great debut album for a band. Nosound got its inspiration in many bands but the influences I can perceive here are definitely Pink Floyd and of course No Man. This album is particularly excellent because of the musical landscapes created all the way through, paving the way for the style of music which is a typical characteristic of NOSOUND: peacefulness, relaxation, good environment, excellent sequences... The intro of "IN THE WHITE AIR" makes you feel you are about to hear a record full of nostalgia and dreams, and you do indeed listen to an excellent album. An excellent introduction for a band: from Italy, Nosound.

A Sense Of Loss
NoSound Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Memo_anathemo

4 stars I have always liked relaxing music, that kind of music that makes me think about my life and the people who has left us behind or the people we love. Nosound creates a style of music I consider very reflexive. A Sense of Loss, follows the same vein as their previous two albums, but that's their style, whether you like it or not, it has defined very well their ambient connotation. Maybe, it is not full of progressive movements but it is still an excellent album that you can listen to over and over and, if you do like this style of music, never get tired of it as I do. Nosound is definitely one of my favorite bands, besides their tendency, prog or not, I don't care, it's wonderful!

Review by Memo_anathemo

4 stars A beautiful album indeed. From the very beginning to the very end Nosound permits your mind travelling and relaxing to the atmospheric sounds they produce. The addition of Chris Maitland (former Porcupine Tree drummer) gives the band a unique touch, and makes me remember some sounds of PT's Up the downstair or The Sky Moves Sideways in the atmospheric parts, yet, this album is far from being psychedelic at all, it is more ambient and lovely in the notes. I can't deny my favorite song is Paralysed where the change from English to Italian sounds awesome. The rest of the album is quite perfect, quite Nosound style. Recommended 100%.

Review by Second Life Syndrome
Collaborator Post/Math Rock and Crossover Teams

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.

Review by demolition man

5 stars A tremendous album once again from Nosound.

Shut out the world and immerse yourself in the music. Beautifully crafted as usual with delicate piano and sublime cello moments. The somewhat rarely interspersed electric guitar liven up the affair for those extra special moments; the result is sheer quality.

Following on from the perfection of three previous releases I just cannot find fault with this. Lightdark was always going to set the bar for me but Nosound have continued with a well trusted formula of dreamy music, perfect for relaxing to. Headphones on and try it!

Very satisfying is the bonus CD of instrumental versions and in a sense the journey through this album is made even more rewarding without the vocals.

All in all, no great surprises; nothing less than 5 stars. Congratulations to Nosound.

Review by robbob

3 stars I reached to NoSound from No Man...

┐Is NS a clone of No Man ? Yes and No.

Yes : Their first albums of course....a good imitation a good clone with that atmospheric space rock of No Man and with some participation of NM vocals .

No: This album is trying to get away from NM influences .

┐Why....? The space rock issue...is not so close... there is a post rock impromptu here.:

Yes in the drums and guitars... I remember Bark Psychosis ...

┐Is this change good?

In my opinion no.....There are many good post rock bands....but good atmospheric prog rock in the line of No Man...no...and first albums of NS where very good in that line..

This attempt in the post rock in my opinion is a reverse ....

3 stars ...

Review by ProgShine
Collaborator Errors & Omissions and Crossover Team

3 stars Nosound is an Italian band formed in 2002 by Giancarlo Erra (vocals and guitars). Together with Giancarlo we have Paolo Vigliarolo (guitars), Alessandro Luci (bass), Marco Berni (keyboards) and in the past year the band was joined by the ex-Porcupine Tree and Blackfield Chris Maitland (drums). The album also has Marianne De Chastelaine (cello) in a couple of tracks.

Afterthoughts (2013) is the band's fourth studio album and it was released on May 6th, but Giancarlo kindly contacted me and sent me the album a month before the official release for a review. The album was written in the past two years and it's the follow up for A Sense Of Loss (2009). Afterthoughts (2013) was released by Kscope and as usual with the label besides the normal edition the album will also be available in a double disc edition with a DVD-A/DVD-V with 5.1 surround high resolution mixes.

Nosound has a particular sound, a kind of dreamy music if you like. This is the sound Kscope has released in their catalogue with names like Anathema, Steven Wilson, Amplifier, The Pineapple Thief and of course, Nosound. Their Progressive Rock is in a different place. You'll not find complex rhythm patterns, for example. Afterthoughts (2013) is all about atmosphere.

'In My Fears' is the first track, followed by 'I Miss The Ground' and 'Two Monkeys' and honestly it is hard to notice that the music changes. They have the same mood, the same sound and the melodies look pretty much alike. Drums in a Pink Floydish scheme, low tune bass, soft keyboards, guitars that hardly appear and vocals that are melodic and soft forge the band's sound.

'The Anger Sound' starts and it doesn't seem to change much, but it does. There's a bit more power in it. A bit more drums as well. If you have the last band's EP Afterthoughts (2013)you'll recognize this one. 'Encounter' changes the pace once again, the Marianne De Chastelaine cello appears once more and Marco Berni keyboards are more prominent too.

'She' is the sixth track and I have to say that besides the Nosound's music being attractive it begins to get a little bit too mellow. The middle instrumental section of the song is the best part here. 'Wherever You Are' is even more acoustic, with cello, soft keyboards and acoustic guitars in the initial part. Only in the middle it becomes more interesting with nice intricate drums. Wish the boys could use this path more often.

'Paralysed' is the longest on Afterthoughts (2013) with a bit more than 8 minutes. I have to say that the Nosound's formula gets a bit tiring at this point. Songs really look all the same. But one thing here's different! The great guitar solo around the second minute of the song. This could be used lot more on the album. The second part of the song is sung in Italian and it's a pretty interesting move. Nosound could certainly drink more of this water. Definitely the most interesting track on the album. 'Afterthought' closes the album as it began.

Afterthoughts (2013) gives continuation on Nosound's music as a dreamy album that can be listened with your eyes closed. Well produced album with many interesting moments. Unfortunately the band has fallen in their own traps. Their music comes into a closed circle, doesn't go anywhere really and the tracks seems too similar. It's nice to listen to some tracks but can be a little obnoxious after some time. A professional album, and if you like dreamy albums and if you like the other band albums, you can go for it without any fears.

Review by BORA

2 stars Am I missing something here? No, not really. Indeed, I certainly wouldn't miss an album so drenched at best, in melancholy, but more like in depression. Enough to make fresh milk curdle instantly. There is enough misery taking place in the world and I thoroughly detest of adding to it - which this band is seemingly addicted to.

Unbelievably dull and uneventful, yet very successful at wallowing in pain and self pity. Probably good enough to send a mentally disturbed person into committing suicide with deep satisfaction. Well, that's only on the atmosphere this album represents.

Musically it's a non-event. A perfect example of how to avoid the slightest hint of any melody, rhythm, or action. In that, they succeed splendidly. Now, I am not adverse to some dark works on the side of more lively offerings, but this piece wouldn't even qualify as "dark" as it's only boring.

At times, there is a slight whiff of some of early Pink Floyd's least memorable filler material and that's almost a plus in comparison, but not enough to raise much interest. Paradoxically, there are rare moments of quite enjoyable guitar work, but altogether this album is not something I'd ever want to hear again.

The "artists" can only blame themselves for my low ratings as they are responsible for putting me in that mood. Still, some credit is due to the guitarist and that lifts this piece slightly above 2, but still far from 3 stars - that's according to the ratings criteria at PA. "Collectors/fans only"

Review by BrufordFreak

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.
