Ein weiterer Meisterstreich aus der Klangwerkstatt von Keyboarder und Gitarrist Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock, der sich diesmal fünf Mitspieler dazugeholt hat: Michael Grüterich (Keyboards, Drums), Andreas Besler (Bass), Cherif Khalil (Drums), Patrick Kosmos (Keyboards), Georg Mahr (Hammond). Vier Kompositionen, mit Verweisen auf Pink Floyd und Tangerine Dream gespickt, doch in jedem Takt geprägt von der Handschrift eines Live-Musikers, der es versteht, dramatische Höhepunkte zu inszenieren, und es schafft, Synthie-Elektronik, Rock-Rhythmen und Ethno-Samples aufeinandertreffen zu lassen, ohne daß die sich gegenseitig totschlagen. Herausragend: "Journey to Eternity", ein 22minütiger kompositorischer Kraftakt, der im Ergebnis so leichthändig wirkt, als sei er aus einer spontanen Studio-Session entstanden. Um es mit dem Titel eines früheren Mind Over Matter Albums zu sagen: Music For Paradise.

KEYBOARDS 12/92
While this album may get low marks for originality, it really delivers as far as results. With a 22-minute, five-part opener that sounds in parts like Michael Shrieve's "Transfer Station Blue," and symphonic rock elements that recall Jarre, Vangelis and other contemporary composers, the group known as Mind over Matter have found a potent formula to bring their musical influences to life. A "Bolero"-like riff is heard on "Pilgrims of Eternity," again with rock motifs readily at hand.
Mind over Matter is the brainchild of Klaus Hoffman-Hoock, who plays crystalline guitar and all the instruments besides the guest appearances by Patrick Kosmos and a few others. There are Tibetan elements like those used by David Parsons, as well as song titles derivative of the "top of the world," and some spacey tracks that are closer to earlier releases from Mind over Matter.
