Prog Reviewer
4 stars Jesse Sola's, aka NUMINA, 2005 record "The Haunting Silence", consolidates this musician's own, self-aquired, musical language.

Of course this does not mean, his previous works are irrelevant, but the route to this level of self enlightment, as to become recognizable among the 100s of musicians who are producing "Ambiental/Electronics". Small feat! To bring the attention to this guy's work, I will try to explain which are the "big" detours this musician employed to do such a thing.

NUMINA's music is intense, yet friendly, not meaning silly of course. As a never ceasing blow of different winds simmultaneously blowing with different "colors" and textures. His melodic lines work upfront and as background. The sound does not hide its electronic intentions, yet it is far from being experimental and above everything else, the songs themselves are hypnotic and addictive, once inside, it is hard to leave. Why? , well for starters, the intelligent distribution of the songs, the magnificent song writing each song displays by themself and as a whole. Their progression is felt as an evolution to different levels or "environments", as they succeed one another, and yet still unique to its previous and posterior siblings, every "new" song sounds fresh and novel. The songwriting in general, is intense, without never stopping to be "Progressive Electronic/Ambiental", even the "dark" kind.

Well deserved, ****4 "will fit in your Prog collection" PA stars.
