POLE, "3"

Maybe I just don't get it. German minimal glitch dub artist StefanBetke has always been getting high praises for his brand of easilydigestible electro noise, yet I find it quite boring and tedious.
 While electronic dub or minimalism can be inviting and attractive attimes, Pole has failed on his third album to present anything ofinterest. Clicks sound like somebody's playing with 1/4 inch plugs inrhythm while the intentional tape hiss sound is downright obnoxious. Isthis a joke? I'm honestly surprised people pay money for this! PerhapsI need to be coming down from a really heavy trip to enjoy it... Pole 3is simply an overrated underachieved reissue of both 1 and 2.
