'Note this name, there's seed of genius.'
Denis Petite (Prog Resiste)
'Sol29 is a classy piece of work..I will not be surprised to find that Nosound soon
becomes known as well internationally as PT before too long.'
Jem (Hairless Hearth Herald)
'..it's nearly perfect, either
in recording quality and composing abilities, and what is more striking
is the care and very elegant style for music details.'
'..a fine art rock album.. tangible demonstration that there's
art rather than simply prog..'
Nosound - Sol29 (Kscope 2010 remastered)
Nosound have announced that the long awaited reissue of their 2005 debut album Sol29 will be available on Kscope from August 16th 2010. The album has been out of print for almost two years, during which time it has become a collectible (and much requested!) piece. The album will be expanded to a 2disc set (CD + DVD) and will be packaged in a super jewel case with slipcase and feature new and revised artwork as well as the original photographic booklet.
The audio CD will feature completely new digitally restored and analogue mastered audio from the original 2005 album, plus three extra re-mastered tracks (clocking in at 78 minutes of music!).
The DVD features a brand new 10 minute video for Sol29, plus the original three ambient/experimental audio video tracks included on The World Is Outside DVD-R. As an extra for fans that missed the first release, the Kscope edition will also include all the original mixes of Sol29 as they were released on 2005 album version. This will be the final and official Sol29 release, collecting all the Nosound early studio material in one single release.
" Going back to where it all started...
Five years have passed since I last visited this place, where I shot what would eventually become the debut Nosound album Sol29 cover.
Then it was a dreamy, foggy and colourful autumn day. When I returned earlier this year it was a cold winter day, intense blue skies and
naked trees. It was like looking again but through different eyes, sort of a clearer sight of what really was... a place that I thought was
possible, but not there anymore.
The key images from the booklet are still there, including the original cover, but I really think that the new slipcase cover is the best
representation of the stark ‘contrast’ I felt after these five years. Even if not perfect Sol29 it still makes perfect sense with the music and
lyrics developed later in Lightdark and A Sense Of Loss.
