Corrado Mastropietro Complex, original. Full of rhythmic ideas, yet very melodic both instrumentally and vocally. Sounds impressive, heavy and sweet. With each listen, I discover more layers. Favorite track: 11-11.

Poesy Rider Un album qui n'est pas loin d'illustrer le concept de dichotomie.
Une partie plutôt prog-rock avec un chanteur qui côtoie une autre partie avec chant féminin beaucoup plus, disons, à ambiances. Bref : du noir, du blanc, et très peu de gris. Favorite track: Black Well Monotony.

'Pole' is an innovative modern rock album, best described as an amalgamation of the styles and sounds of Tool, Peter Gabriel, Nine Inch Nails, and the daring attitude and scope of contemporary art.

Tuner consists of drummer Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, KTU) and German touch guitarist & multi-instrumentalist Markus Reuter (Centrozoon).

The 15 songs often employ evolving rather than repetitive structures and feature remarkable performances by all the musicians involved.

The album's undoubted instrumental strenghts are augmented by a stunning selection of vocal contributions by the likes of the Austrian artist SiRenée, Peter Kingsbery (of Cock Robin), and Chrysta Bell (who sings in the current David Lynch movie, Inland Empire).

'Pole' was produced in the USA and Germany by Pat Mastelotto and Markus Reuter, in collaboration with German hit record producer Fabio Trentini.

'Pole' was listed as one of 50 all-time Prog Classics in Modern Drummer magazine.
