In response to Confield thread: no this.

 

Seriously, listening to this again today and it has worlds within worlds. Confield and Draft are both worthy runners up, but there can be only one Chiastic Slide. Deepest release of theirs, imo (arguably most organic and "life affirming" too)

Just to let you know. I don't understand why this album is so underrated. Chord progressions in Pule are as stunning as in Oversteps and these are almost 15 yrs old... just how innovative these must have been... 

 

Nuane you all!

Got Chiastic Slide more or less when it came out (no immediate US pressing I think delayed me).  It took me ten years before I went through a full obsesion phase with Chiastic Slide.  Not sure what my issue was. At some point Cipater and especially Recury popped for me and I listened to them about every day and eventually got obssed with the whole album.  Not sure if I'd rate it historically above Tri Repetae but it does seem to be the first Ae album (as of 2013) where none of the tracks feel even slightly dated.

Oddly, I absolutely love Cichlisuite and Envane, but I don't love Chiastic Slide. It's merely alright for me.

Really? I strongly associate Envane & Chiastic Slide together, not just because they came out around the same time; there seems to be a thematic link between them in my mind, almost like they belong as a double album.

I started with Chiastic slide, then worked my way backwards, and then forwards. Chiastic slide was my favourite music to run to: Just as I thought I might collapse from exhaustion, Tewe would come on, coinciding with a relieving downhill sprint.

 

Obsessive listening after that: Draft and Anti EP.

tewe is wonderful, sounds like a feverish shamanic sceance goin on in the dark of night in a desert. And those crunchy cast iron sounds of Cipater as it rides the crest of the wave and carries the tri repetae blueprint onwards and upwards to funkier heights.

I remember seeing a sign in an HMV somewhere years ago that described ae's subgenre as "mutilated beats". Always thought that description fitted this album the best. Love the crunchy beats, which they've not really done since.
