Description

NEWLY REMASTERED MID-PRICE EDITION OF THE 2013 ALBUM FEATURING PORCUPINE TREE'S DRUMMER CHRIS MAITLAND FEATURING THREE BONUS TRACKS INCLUDING NEW SONG "LETTER TO A POSSIBLE PAST"

Nosound have been regarded by critics and fans alike as one of the most interesting modern Art Rock bands in Europe, inventively combining influences from '70s psychedelia, '80s/'90s ambient and contemporary alternative, progressive and post-rock. Started as a one-man studio project in 2005 by Giancarlo Erra but has since grown into a five-piece band, evolving into something unique, focused and powerful. The music is evocative and intense, with personal songwriting. Influences range from Pink Floyd to Brian Eno, from Porcupine Tree to Sigur Ros, passing through rock and electronic/ambient.

Afterthoughts is Nosound's fourth studio album, the follow up to 2009's A Sense Of Loss, which was described by Goldmine as "Nosound's most accomplished recording" (4/5) and by DPRP as "one of the finest releases of 2009" (9.5/10). Afterthoughts saw continued support from the press, with Prog describing it as "A post-rock poem as bleak as it was beautiful... it is, in a word, extraordinary" and Popmatters (USA) as "a tour de force of emotion, delicacy, passion, cohesion, and grief-stricken splendour... Few other albums have ever matched its magnificent combinations." (9/10). The album marked a change of direction for the band's sound, triggered by a series of line-up changes including the Porcupine Tree and Blackfield drummer Chris Maitland, forming a sound and lyrical content that was more direct and powerful compared to their previous releases.

This mid-price CD edition has been newly remastered by Erra, along with the rest of the Nosound catalogue, in the build-up to the band's new studio album due later in 2018. It is presented in digipack packaging complete with an 8-page booklet and features the previously unreleased bonus track "Letter To A Possible Past" and two tracks from the At the Pier EP, all taken from the original recording sessions with Chris Maitland.
