From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Thomas Thielen is a very talented multi-instrumentalist, a musician who has proved the value of his personal ideas by writing original music in both Scythe albums and his two first personal (as T). This is his third attempt, another album in the same vein as "Voices", his latest release in 2006.

The Marillion and Gazpacho influences are dominating "Anti-Matter Poetry", filtered with the unique style of T. The sound of these two bands during the last decade pushed the neo-prog sound forward and it's obvious that Thielen wants to play modern prog rock, adding his personal style. The Bowie-like vocals give a more dramatic atmosphere to all songs, where simple and yet prog melodies (guitar, keyboards and even sax) are combined with very good samplings. The best examples are"Phantom Pain Scars" and "The Rearview Mirror Suite", both wonderful songs that will appeal to any fan of progressive music.

The best about "Anti-Matter Poetry", besides the high compositional and performance level, is the freshness of Thielen's ideas and his introvert style of playing. The album sounds like 2010, though there are many evident 70's influences (mostly Genesis).

One of the best albums I have listened to this year. Highly recommended to all neo-prog and modern prog-rock fans.
