How can it be as heavy as it is but at the same time be so bright and crisp? A mesmerisingly refreshing tonal pallet combined with thoughtful and interesting melodies with playful and emotional twists at every turn. Sometimes a lack of vocals means you can drift off and tune out a bit when listening, not as much to focus on; not in this case though, every song has its own character and feel. Best bit of the album - the middle/ending of Blood Rust, sort of thing that gives you goosebumps all over. 5/5
Favorite track: Blood Rust.
The cover art reminds me of some forgotten 70s prog rock. Love it. Musically, this is tremendous prog-y and fuzzy stoner rock. Imagine a German version of Karma to Burn, who listened to a lot of Krautrock instead of Southern Rock. That is Buddha Sentenza for me. Really creative song writing, sound choices, instrumentation, and production. All sorts of goodness on display here.
Favorite track: Jet.
Semaphora has been my introduction to Buddha Sentenza and what can I say about the album and the brains behind it? 'Tis incredible, mind altering stuff! Prog driven heavy psych with just enough by way of subtle stoner groove for these six instrumental trips to entice stalwarts from both camps into the warm fuzzy glow of a single tent.
Favorite track: Blood Rust.

this album makes you feel like dropping everything you are doing and just blasting off and just soaring through space at near light speed. sail through space and watch as the planets, comets, and stars roll pass as you continue your journey into the empty void. lulzmoose
