3 stars A trio from Wales, Sendelica delivers spacey rock elements that at times conjure up Pink Floyd and also plays psychedelic and heavier styled music with some electronic effects resulting in a final sound that takes the listener to other worlds. Their music is cool, "breezy" and serves as a good chill-out serving. The album has a groovy mood, and when it veers into the heavier parts (such as in Spaceman Bubblegum #2) it serves as a good dosage of "freakout" to let your mind loose and sounds like either a late 60's psych band or some krautrock band jamming. Repetitiveness is quite abundant throughout the tracks, and at times I feel as if surrounded by walls of sounds, as if on a psychedelic acid trip. Essentially this recording sounds to me like a collection of long jams that have a pre-conceived theme around which they develop and direct the music to whatever point it is they want to get to. And to me it sounds very well done. Jams may sound misleading, so let's say, instrumental mind-altering musical substance; long, pieces of dirty sounding excursions (in a good way) with no partitioning between lead and great rhythm. The tracks flow very well from one to the next, continuing in the same spirit with a new melody or riff yet bringing a new vibe with each tune. The music here is nothing new or original, but it's well played and most important highly fun to listen to. I can't help but get carried away and get sucked into the music as I listen to this.

Great album for tripping.

Enjoyment and listening experience: 3-3.5 stars Originality, creativity, musicianship etc.: 2.5-3 stars
