3 stars MY SLEEPING KARMA are in business since ten years now and consistently, pretty much every second year, deliver a top quality album. Their recept consists of songs which often enough bear a repetitve motif which is coupled with a stoner rock attitude basically. Another trademark, the corporate design, one could say, is made of Buddhistic references, just taking the song titles or album covers into account. The music is instrumental, usually, though a really excellent exception marks the female vocal decorated Svaatanya from the 2008 album 'Satya'.

On 'Moksha', released on Napalm Records, they consequently continue the path they've taken with the former albums, hence are on a safe route here, though without totally risking to miss some change, or progress if you will. Always remarkable is Seppi's guitar sound and style, psychedelic here, heavy riffing there. A matter of recognition value for sure. MY SLEEPING KARMA again provide some shorter interludes which generally ease things up, with other words they provide additional variety, like already done on 'Satya' beforehand.

By way of example I could detect some beautiful melodic pearls like Vayu and the following Interlude 2 where Akasha shows a proper groove due to Matte's bass most notably. With the title track they are stepping towards a blend of art and post rock, I mean the varied guitar appearance, and the piano is partially coming to the fore really. Although their sound does not change that much basically, they are not failing to offer new challenging compositions again and again. Which means with 'Moksha' the band have produced another album that is able to convince - 3,5 stars.
