AllMusic Review by

Mind over Matter is the brainchild of Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock, and he plays nearly all the instruments with a few guest appearances along the way. He uses a variety of synthesizer keyboards and samplers, supplemented by acoustic and electric guitars. Several of these cuts have received airplay on Music from the Hearts of Space, especially "Being One" and "One Being," two of the four bonus tracks on this hour-long CD. Long passages through floating territories transport the listener to faraway figments of one's imagination, with lingering melodies carried by solid underpinnings and rhythmic layerings. The voice tracks are more for effect than as actual vocal parts, and they serve to expand an already far-reaching odyssey.
