2 stars Fool's GOLD, overrated and forgettable!

I assume that if you have never heard electronic or prog/electronic music in your life, you could "survive" with this Cosmic Ground, 2014, "Cosmic Ground". Aside from that I will think it twice.

If not, as soon as 6.5 minutes have run, you will realize, again, that thIis band and its admirers and reviewers, are betting on your forgetfulness or "nostalgia" (or ignorance,could happen, you never know!).

Not only is it another Tangerine Dream's "RUBYCON" / "RICOCHET", rip-off (Klaus Schulze's bizarre synth lines, of course, are also "used".) , it openly abuses their charecteristics and sounds. Yes!, remember the "drowning breathing " sound of both ("RUBYCON" / "RICOCHET",1975) ?? Well copying it perfectly may turn out to be the best "attribute" of this 2014 "project".

Second, it is quiet unwise to start any "electronic music" discourse, if you have never heard italian electronic music composers Antonio Russolo's "Corale" (1924) or Luigi Russolo's "Ululatore" or "Crepitatore" (1925). As to understand perfectly that "eerie" or "obscure" electronic environments were not "invented" in the now so "sheltering" Berlin school or the later prog/electronic style.

Buy the remastered "Rubycon" or Schulze's "Blackdance" (not my favorite KS, but CG sure fed up on it.).

For USA's Zombi fans, I suppose!

*2 and going down to 1, "good because it is not bad in comparisson to itself" , full of unattractive or lazy melody lines and UNORIGINAL to the top! PA stars.

You can do better with your cash!
