I could have resurrected an ep7 thread, but I want to praise this song specifically.

It is:

• hands down, my favorite Autechre track
• The best album opener out of any of Autechre's
• The first bit always makes me think of Baba O'Reily, making it even more epic
• Easily one of the funkiest Autechre tunes
• Ridiculously awesome textural mashing
• It leads into the rest of the album, which is all fucking golden

EP7 in general is awesome.

Baba O'Reily... I've always wanted to know what the name of that song was... it's an awesome intro.

BUT

Rpeg has probably one of the greatest intros to any album I think. The only thing that I think beats it is Orbital's Girl with the Sun In Her Head.

I like a lot of EP7... it feels less cohessive and epic to me than most of their albums but I wonder if that's because it technically is two ep's? I was never sure if it was actually intended to be an album or an ep.

both songs start out with a brittle sounding synthesizer arpegiating on a major fifth and octave, rpeg doesn't do it in the exact same way, but the effect of both intros are very similar to me.

It's a reference to Terry Riley and Meher Baba.

When I was young, I listened to this track on amazon.com, became hypnotized, bought the cd, and loved it.

Its digital form lives with me today, and now. I have mad undying love for Rpeg.

I dunno, I don't like it that much, I'm just not a big fan of meandering/random notes going up and down a scale (see also Dial). Also there are so many other album/EP openers that are better than this, Cipater, GantzGraf, Acroyear2, heck, even Kalpol Introl.
