3 stars On this occasion underway on solo paths with his project COSMIC GROUND this is Dirk Jan Müller, predominantly known as the member of ELECTRIC ORANGE as well as the SPACE INVADERS. Currently both are rather innovative bands hailing from the rising space and neo krautrock scene in Germany. It doesn't go without notice - here we have the second workout released for this project. Besides hammond and mellotron Dirk is having a huge arsenal of analogue synthesizer tools at hand again.

That means you'll have to await a more retro styled album in general, filled with floating spacey patterns and looping repetitive sequencer motifs influenced by Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh, Manuel Göttsching and similiar. Conceived for a double vinyl release most likely, four extended songs are given, all equipped with a length of around twenty minutes. Way more organ drenched the closing Altair partition is differing from the other songs. This one has evolved to my album highlight within the recent listening sessions due to its magnificent flow.

While certainly entering the cosmic ground CG 2 is a solid contribution to the widespread progressive electronic field. Although Dirk does not really reach for a new niche with his compositions, it's definitely well done - gripping either way, but also a matter of relaxing excercises when trying to put your feet up. It solely depends on your current mood what particular section you might prefer. Just give it a try!
