3 stars Many years ago a friend who shares my love for 'vintage keyboards', advised me to listen to Cosmic Hoffmann because the frequent use of my beloved Mellotron. He also told me that this musician owned at least 13 Mellotrons at his home but later he sold most of the them.. unfortunately I was not very rich at that moment! But back to the music, Cosmic Hoffmann does justice to his musical name because most of his music sounds very spacey/cosmic featuring beautiful Mellotron waves (often the violin section), soaring synthesizers and in the titletrack a fiery and often howling guitar solo along captivating, Arabian inspired synthesizer flights. In the less dreamy parts the music has echoes from 74- 80 Tangerine Dream, early Neuronium and early JM Jarre, very warm and melodic. The final, very mellow and hypnotizing composition Wanderers Of Time features as guest on synthesizer Ron Boots, the pivotal and prolific frontman of the new Dutch electronic music. If you like cosmic electronic, Cosmic Hoffmann will please you.
