    Pole continues advancing musically on Tempus, stowing away new sounds and approaches so subtly that they only surface when zeroed in on.

    It’s the sound of an artist drawing from his repertoire while demonstrating that he is still looking to the future.

    It lacks the crumbly warmth of Betke's early '00s work, but the likes of "Grauer Sand" and "Stechmück" - pensive, jazzy constructions drawing on the whine of an ailing Minimoog - draw a certain beauty from their tone of smoky introspection. [Dec 2022, p.35]

    Tempus is overwhelming serene. [Dec 2022, p.89]
