Barista – Open Sesame Vol 1 Her Dress Album Review

Today we are featuring a rock band, Barista, from Istanbul, Turkey. We have reviewed their album, Open Sesame Vol 1: Her Dress, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Barista is a rock band with a fantastic blend of traditional American rock, hard rock, and progressive elements with influences from Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, Eric Clapton, Joe Bonamassa, and even John Mayer. In case you haven’t heard about the band before, Barista started their careers with an album called; Daydream in 2014. Since then, Barista released two more long-play, 57 (2016) and Open Sesame Vol 1: Her Dress (2021), one single, This Way (2016), and one EP album, Open Sesame Vol 2: Press Rewind (2021). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Open Sesame Vol 1: Her Dress is a fantastic album with seven wonderful songs, released not long ago on the 16th of April, 2021. I listened to the album more than a few times before writing my article, and surprisingly, this album doesn’t belong to a respected American rock band, they are Turkish. First of all, the band is truly fantastic with their performance and songwriting skills. In order to make good music in a genre like this where American musicians have been dominating alone for years, you’ve got to have something really special about yourself. In Barista’s case, I can say that they almost have the same musical and technical standards with legendary names I have mentioned above.

Furthermore, all songs have easy-going, radio-friendly structures and rich instrumentation. The overall vibe is so beautiful, it immediately pulls you into its world. The album musically does not offer anything innovative in general, this is a traditional rock album with a traditional approach from the beginning to the end. It would be a mistake expecting an innovation when people are making what they love in life, and Barista in this way has done a wonderful album. It’s quite obvious that this is Barista’s passion, and I can easily feel that. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be as meaningful as the Open Sesame Vol 1: Her Dress album.


The album technically has world-class standards as I have mentioned above. You immediately feel like you’re listening to a new album by a legendary American rock band. It has the necessary live performing feeling in it where all musicians are quite advanced with their instruments.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I enjoyed listening to Barista. I think Open Sesame Vol 1: Her Dress is one of the fine examples of traditional American rock music released lately.

The album opener song; “CIRCULAR LIVES” earned its place in our “TOP ROCK SONGS PLAYLIST” on Spotify!
