4 stars Since their debut in 2006, the Germanic formation MY SLEEPING KARMA has won its stripes within the international post rock galaxy. Their instrumental, heavy and hypnotic compositions are undoubtedly worth the detour, you will notice when reading the titles that all MY SLEEPING KARMA revolves around Hinduism.

Like many artists, the last two years have been particularly difficult because of the pandemic, but the quartet has coped thanks to its stability now effective for more than fifteen years and a lapse of seven years since their previous studio album "Moksha" in 2015. The new opus "Atma" describes the absolute self, the eternal spirit (literal translation = Soul), the darkness of everyday life (disease, death, fear), in short not the frank laughter...all with culminating in the dissolution of the group...which ultimately did not happen.

The content of the disc is simple, six titles between six and ten minutes, not so easy to tame and which I advise you to listen to twice to facilitate your digestion because the (desired) heaviness of the rhythmic base may put some people off. Note that the fourth member Norman MEHREN is not credited to the keyboards but to the "soundboards"!

MY SLEEPING KARMA offers us here a publication which equals by its sadness but also its infinite beauty a major work which will remind the old ones of the timeless THE CURE a long time ago, breathing in the somewhat gloomy air of time while keeping a window open to a brighter future
