3 stars I first heard of Senmuth when I was scouring the Internet for free artists. My friend recommended him to me, and I was intrigued at the size of his discography. Picking at random, I gave Morning Depth a listen. When I heard this album, I couldn't help but draw comparisons to Buckethead. At least on this album (Senmuth exhibits MANY different styles), the pieces are dominantly acoustic jams or doodles with little structure. Much like Buckethead, he's put many great ideas, not always fully fleshed out, and put them together. Also like Buckethead, there's at least one "finished" piece ("Morning Swallow") which stands above the rest as a legitimately great and memorable song. It's like Senmuth took a shot at writing rewriting Colma. I'd love to give this album a 3.5/5 for being enjoyable, technically proficient, but unfocused, but I'm sadly forced to round it down to a 3/5. I'd recommend it if you're looking for an enjoyable ambient acoustic listen, though it's not something you're likely to come back to.
