  1. I think it's him but he's trying to sound like someone who doesn't understand why he sounds the way does trying to sound like him.
  2. It would make sense.
  3. It's really nice. The atmosphere is actually so friendly! I can imagine having this on for hours.
  4. MHTRTC is the core BOC sound for me. It's undeniably a perfect album and I don't think they ever came close to its highlights again. Everything else is still great though!
  5. I'll never understand the hate for TH. It's spectacular, front to back.
  6. That's a fact. I had the same thing with the Manchester track vs minipops. On the live recording when the voice comes in at the end it sounded very heavy, bassy and dark to me, which I loved. The studio version felt totally weak and forgettable. heh i had the same with metz track. its like when you like your old noisy tapes better than cds Also the Metz track had extra hi hats halfway through and some cool extra sound effects here and there. That combined with the huge reverb and live context, the audience and as already stated the vagueness of it makes the live version LOT more epic in my opinion. But you can't live off of the live version, I am glad we have the proper track for the sake of having it, it would be horrendous to only have that 2010 recording. The percussion on Metz was a lot more snappy too. It doesn't really hit that hard on XMAS.

  8. That's the fucking funniest thing I've ever read on WATMM.
  9. Fenix Funk 5 is easily in his top five tunes ever. The drums in that song are so fucking perfectly matched. FF5 is the first Aphex track I ever heard, in Wipeout Pulse on PSP. Every time I hear the track I just think of tearing around the Amphiseum in Eliminator mode, zoning in on my next target, alone in the digital world, beautiful in its obvious fakeness while the pads of Fenix Funk blare away into the void... Cringey as that is, that's exactly how FF5 makes me feel.
  10. So I got the vinyl and XMAS EVE is like a different track. It has the punch that the CD totally lacks.
  11. Yeah I've just read that review too! I just have a feeling that I'm missing something on Syro. I've been let down by plenty of my favourite artists, but I've never been so intrigued as to why as for Syro.
  12. Is it true that the mastering is better on Syro's vinyl? I'm on the verge of buying it just to put the matter to bed once and for all. Syro, on CD and download anyway, always sounds to me like there's some kind of film over the sound. Like trying to watch a movie on a TV lightly coated in dust. Not a dealbreaker, but really fucking annoying. I had a similar experience with Windowlicker, listening to the vinyl version was an infinitely more pleasurable experience than putting on the digital.
