AllMusic Review by

Eric's third album shows the artist making slow but deliberate progress in his style and music construction. His prior two CD releases were stiff and utilized too many sound effects in place of good musical structures. His new album is influenced by the depths of outer space. The first track is clearly influenced by Klaus Schulze. The track has a long sound collage which builds to the starting point of the main sequence of the music before decaying into random sounds. In other words, chaos to balance to chaos again. Schulze used this method several times as did Baffo Banfi on the Ma Dolce Vita album track "Fantasia Di Un Planeta Sconosciuto." Banfi was also a Schulze follower. The sound effects are reduced on this album and Eric has made some development in musical construction that makes this album the best of his releases so far. However, the overall album and music still comes over as cold, stiff and sterile. Wizards Projects, c/o Eric Mostert, Seevancksweg 36, #1474 HD Oosthuizen, The Netherlands.
