Objectiveness is impossible, so i'll just list my personal chart:

 

Chiastic Slide is definetly my favorite. Back in the days had to listen to it on many psychedelic stuff (fully bloomed for me on shrooms) to completely fall in love with it. Different from other "complex" albums by that i can "get it" on clean head nowadays. Nice personal legacy from my chemical past.

 

Confield is near, but stings absolutely different emotions - not quite interested in those at the time, so i'm listening to it quite rarely. Still very much respect it and sometimes can get it on clean head (but again, only becauce i once got it being ultra-dosage-high)

 

Amber is my everyday Autechre. When i don't know what ae to listen, i choose Amber. Loved it before any chemical experiences. Yet i hate Silverside and Teartear, and can't say i very much love Nil and Further also.

 

Incunabula - pure nostalgia, like watching childhood pictures or something. Listening to it very rarely and only the two tracks - Bike and 444. Like Amber, loved it before any shroomlsds. Music made by young souls that like to dream.

 

Tri Repetae - Love it very much, but mostly because of awesome memories of Clipper on acid and C/Pach on weed. Not Listening to it often, but when i do manage to tune my mind for it to click, it makes me happy.

 

Untilted and Quaristice - awesome, but not on the clean head for me. Don't quite listen to them that often now, especially Untilted. They were absolutely great on acid though :)

 

Draft 7.30, LP5, EP7 are great, but historically pretty much skipped by me, don't know why.

 

Oversteps and Move of Ten is on the bottom for me. Long story. Just don't like 'em. r ess is a beautiful opener and see on see is a nice mimimi-awww-track about infant dolphins playing around. Probably you have to listen to these albums on some mix of ketamine and lsd while floating in the isolation tank, i guess.

 

Not quite interested nowadays in the art that can only be fully understood on drugs. That can also be said about Exai. It's just that i want music i can comfortably listen to on clean head.

 

I dig this review and - despite my lack of drug use when listening to Autechre - have an almost identical taste in their music to you (except with more priority given to LP5 and Oversteps for me, both of which are outstanding with a couple of blips).

I really don't see logic in most of you guys' lists...

Albums that have only a slightly different style are suddenly places way lower or higher than others, and albums with totally different styles are first and second place, it really doesn't make sense.

One could say the same about your choices too though. Despite being close in time period, Chiastic Slide and LP5 sound as different from each other as anything in their discography at that point. While I love them both, they are very different albums.

 

And while Confield and Draft are both from around the same time period and are Ae at their most abstract, Confield is one of my most loved albums, whereas Draft continues to be a chore to listen to for me. Untilted, Quaristice, and Oversteps all sound extremely different from each other despite being sequential albums.

 

What you may see as similar albums might be worlds apart for some people. And just because two albums share a commonality, does not make them both great or both bad. There are many more factors at play here.

Absolutely on board with this response.

 

You (3849) say you are surprised when people place albums which are similar in style so far apart on a list. A good example may be quaristice, which one could argue comes from a similar space as some other albums. But i think many people feel that the songs are all so short they dont develope and take you anywhere, so it's placement may be based on that.

 

Also it's true that people may place albums which are stylistically very different and put them in the same level of greatness. But there can be more than one reason to like an album. The things I like about lp5 are very different from the things I like about confield, but I place them very close because I like them both almost equally, but for very very different reasons

can't even hope to order them in a way that doesn't fall apart when you look at it differently.

 

if I were to think of my immediate favourites in the sense of having listened to them first and felt some sort of emotional connection, it'd go like:

 

Tri Rep

EP7 <-> LP5

Confield <-> Draft

Chiastic Slide <-> Amber <-> Inkoonaboola

Exai <-> Untilted <-> Oversteps <-> Quaristice

 

the bottom two tiers aren't "bad" at all, they just came after my virgaenity had already been taken.

 

EP7 (and I do consider it a full-length in its own right) in particular was where a lot of things came together and I understood what Ae were about. some of that had to do with the fact that I was often listening to it while working a night shift in a boring job, so I was exhausted and in a weird place mentally where the front of my mind was absorbed with something trivial and repetitive while the back of my mind was digesting the music. it really clicked then, especially tracks like Zeiss Contarex which doesn't get enough love imo. there was a real moody vibe on EP7 that I loved (exemplified by dat Ccec bass).

 

however none of that says anything about which their "best" and "worst" albums are. so this post was a big nuffin'.

Shitty assignment, but I'll give it a go since I'm such a incurable fan, and even though it could change over time, and no one else gives a damn about it...

 

1st: Chiastic Slide, Amber, Incunabula, Garbage

2nd: EP7, Draft 7.30, Confield, Untilted

3rd: Quaristice, Tri Repetae, Oversteps, LP5

 

Move of Ten is still a foreigner to me, and I abstain Exai until further notice.

Listing these in order is not something I think about a lot but if I were to do this, I think Untilted, Oversteps, LP5, Chiastic Slide would be near the top.

 

Middle would be Exai, Quaristice, Draft, and Confield

 

Bottom would be the rest
