4 stars The music of t (Thomas Thielen) should be better known. The reason it is not is probably that he does not release many of his albums to the streaming sites (there are just two albums on the site I use most frequently).

My introduction to t was Anti-matter Poetry and the extraordinary track Rearview Mirrors Suite (that album and that track are still my favourites). All albums are worth checking out (although I have had to gain access to them by buying them which I was happy to, and will continue to, do) and his latest, Solipsystemology, is no exception. Thielen has a fine voice similar to Bowie and he sings with an intensity that is similar to h of Marillion. There is an extraordinary intensity to his music which is generally melancholy in tone (but not always). He is a talented multi-instrumentalist and his vocals tend to soar over and dominate the subtle (sometimes chaotic) and complex melodies that he writes. His music requires a few listens to be fully appreciated. He is certainly a fine composer and should be more widely recognised.

I have enjoyed Solipsystemology but it has not held me as much as some of his earlier albums and, with this review, I stand by the 4 stars rating I gave at the time of release rather than the 5 stars given by most reviewers here.
