Aminita Satori’s sophomore release, ‘Back to the Stars We Go’ is a 30-minute journey into the great beyond. Noting the fact that this artist was inspired by the likes of Terence McKenna, Alan Watts, and Bill Hicks ñ it should come as no surprise as to why this album sounds the way it does. A floaty sense of pondering and reflection is threaded from one track to the next. Even though the songs range a bit in texture and nuance, you can’t help but get the feeling that there is a continuity throughout.
‘The Way’ is the album opener, and pretty much sets the tone for the ‘vibe’ you can expect on this record. Other stand outs like ‘Flying’, and the title track, ‘Back to the Stars We Go’ make sensational use of sax solos amidst electronic elements to create surprisingly unique sonic spaces. The album captures a serenity and ambience most listeners will find both accessible and enjoyable.
