AllMusic Review by

Eric Mostert is a recent name to the ranks of EM artists. He lives in Holland. This first CD was not intended for general release but as a demonstrator disc to get him jobs providing background music for video productions and other areas where music is needed. The music has a major flaw in that it draws too heavily on sound effects versus good music structures. The overall feel of the music is seventies industrial EM. As the field of EM has diversified and developed musically it would be hard for fans of more recent EM music to be able to listen to this style of music. This is beginners' music that normally would have appeared as a cassette to fund his development. If the artist stays in the field and develops a following, this could be highly collectable. While several tracks do show some interesting musical ideas but the artist inserts sound effects in the middle that breaks the flow of the music.
