Thanks again Hollan. I surely appreciate your explanations.

As an lover of electronic music I'm not too happy with this. But I do respect your (business) decisions.

If there's enough positive reviews I might change my mind. Someday.


I will tell you its quite worth it, known Hollan for many years now, he would never rip off anyone or charge more than he should. Hes a very honest good man, trust me, its worth it, both cds are phenomenal, IMO could be his best work yet.

After a listen on Tidal, I bought the CD as soon as I could. Admittedly, I'm not familiar with Hollan's previous work but this album really impressed me. I don't often splurge on releases like this anymore but I made an exception in this case.

Yeah this is excellent, just listened to it properly for the first time last night.

Good mixture of sequence, melodic and ambient styles.

Sequences are really lovely...I am even liking the ambient second half/second CD!

Thank you Hollan for "A Midwinter Night's Dream", I can't seem to get enough of this track.

Hollan's music is, in my opinion, a work of genius. The perfect mixture between Berlin School and ambient. His sounds are excellent. In have written a review of the album in the coming issue of the Dutch magazine iO Pages.

Hi Paul,

Would it be an idea to add IO Pages to our media section and a kind of ‘publish’ your reviews on a regular basis?

Thanks, everyone, I'm honored. The response to this release has been a bit overwhelming, but I'm certainly not upset about it. Wink

And Bert Strolenberg, thank you sir, for your very positive review of my latest. Deeply grateful for your highest rating. Your reviews have been and continue to be a powerful component in spreading the word about my work and I'm grateful for your time and consideration.

This album was a real struggle for me, thus the two years to make it. Taking a break to concentrate on my paintings and recharge my ambient batteries. Next release Summer of '18. Fall, perhaps.

Cheers and thanks again, everyone, Very Happy

-hhh

Paul, thank you! iO Pages have been quite good to me over the last couple of years. Honored to be featured and reviewed in your pages.

My wife, however, might argue against the use of the word, genius. She would likely argue that geniuses generally don't lose their keys as often as I do. Wink

Cheers and thanks!
