Hol Baumann: [Human]

jmh_az

After hearing a track from this album on somafm.com (Bénarès), I decided to take a chance and download the entire thing. Wow, what a surprise. Baumann uses beats, bass, voices, and electronics to weave a captivating soundscape. There is not a dud track in the set, and each adds to the overall mood. What is that mood? Well, that's difficult to say. For me it invokes a sense that we stand at the crossroads between what could be lost, what could be preserved, and what could be gained. A very impressive effort by Hol Baumann and an intriguing sonic snapshot of what it means to be human.

Truly a find

jbmetrics

There are a few albums that I have bought that I had wished I knew about them when they came out so I could have enjoyed all those years to listen to them. Human, by Hol Baumann is one of those albums. If you are a fan of emotive electronic music that captures and transports you to an altered state of reality and love the music behind Tangerine Dream, Depeche Mode, and Craig Armstrong, then you will find this very much to your liking.

Hol Baumann - Human

I downloaded this based on the reviews above... it's good but I can't say I am as wild about it as the others... I prefer some of the other artists on ULTIMAE Records with a warmer feel ... but each to their own.

Music to journey with

Pandora dished up one of the tracks from this album while I was listening to a station based on H.U.V..A. Networks. I am so excited to find this guy! Each song is carefully crafted, with complex textures, interesting sounds and sustained beats. It's not pop-sounding, but it's not really trance, experimental or down-tempo. Some songs border on an epic sound, like a soundtrack score, or convey movement and make me want to be on a train listening with headphones. I love the darker, melancholy chord progressions, strands of melody and voice samples. Several songs remind me of the brilliant score to the movie Hannah by Chemical Brothers.

Consistently Impressive

Reeeegan

This is the first review I've written on Emusic after subscribing since the beginning of 2009. I feel compelled to do it as this album is easily the most consistent album I've heard for a while. [Human] keeps your attention for the entire hour. Superb! I eagerly await more. Rather than cherry-pick tracks, I recommend that you grab the whole album. You won't be disappointed.

Strikin the Psyche!!!

emjayvee

This album blew me away. With its deep primordial grooves spun in the freshest new style. This is truly musicianship at its finest. This album is beautifully composed and produced. This album speaks directly to the Human emotions within. I am picky when it comes to my electronic music and this is an easy five stars. Bring on the next albun HOL Baumann. Tracks 3 and 9 are great to try before going ll the way. If you dig this you should check out Hoopy Frood, Healer, HUVA.

"Intelligent" is right...

djdanparker

This is a fantastic album. Excellent flow from one song to the next -- combining deep bass-lines and hypnotic tones to create a sound that can hold its own in just about any situation, or simply drift into the background. I can't wait to hear more from Hol Baumann, as this is definitely my favorite of the many Ultimae albums I have downloaded. If you like this, also check out I AWAKE -- great music there as well.

Sophisticated electronica

DeathByZamboni

Outstanding. The snippets of this album are deceiving--this is rich, intelligent electronica. Somewhere in a land between ambient, techno and dubstep but carving out its own unique territory, [Human] really takes you somewhere. It envelops in a world touchingly melancholic about the human condition but not depressingly so. Take your time and let this seep in. Heady without being obscure, experimental without being irritating...it's my new favorite. Hit repeat and tune out.
