I've been listening to "Allow Yourself" for sometime now, and the first time I heard some of the tracks I was "What!" they were a shock, but I could hear something interesting in it, its an album that grows on you, it does take a few listens. I find the albums that make me do that stay as favourites (like King Crimson's Islands - which is wildly different to In The Court). After the 3rd listen of AY I went and played all the Nosound in chronological order, and you can hear the progression through the albums towards AY. Allow Yourself is very different to earlier albums, but you can detect the Nosound 'musical signature' all the way through. I find it an incredibly emotive and powerful album, with well thought out and composed songs, Nosound/Giancarlo's best album so far IMHO. Its going to be interesting to find out what others think.
