The Review:

Tuner returns with their second album, ‘Pole’. The band still consists of King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto and multi-instrumentalist Markus Reuter. Joining them this time are some guest artists that help pat & Markus create a mixture of progressive rock/metal, electronica and art-rock into something that is rather new but with some familiarities about it. Just imagine the last version of King Crimson but with a electronica and industrial edge and you have the core of what Tuner is all about.

I will admit this is one of the more difficult things I’ve ever listened to but I like challenges and it’s worth it! I keep hearing new sounds each time I listen to ’Pole’. It’s different from the debut in the sense of Pat & Markus’ musical visions are progressing and finding new ways to express themselves. Kudos to both and hopefully Tuner will have more recognition soon. They sure deserve it So if you like your music on the heavy eclectic side, look no further and get Tuner‘s new album, ‘Pole‘ ASAP!
