  • Summary: Experimental electronica artist Stefan Betke returns with his first full-length in four years.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 8 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. An ambient record that doesn't bore or get bogged down in its insistence on fading into the background.
  2. Steingarten is a nearly perfect album.
  3. Betke hasn’t merely licked his wounds and retreated into familiar territory, but fused some lessons learned from his own back catalog to create a shiny new beast, at once identifiable as his work and yet something tangibly different.
  4. For what it is, it’s just about perfect.
  5. Electronic music is seldom this engaging or characterful. [Apr 2007, p.121]
  6. Pole’s technique still relies heavily on the minimal, but Steingarten is garnished with a sonic density lacking on his first three full-lengths.
  7. Steingarten is a unique take on ambient/glitch inspired music however it’s lack of musical progression brings it down.
