I listened to this yesterday and commented to bitroast "how high do you think they were when they made Recury?". That whole repetitive bit in the middle just sounds like they left the machines running and zoned out to it

 

so true.  pretty psychadelic track.

it doesnt change much, yet there is so much detail in that beat, that you can get lost in it for almost 10 minutes and still feel like there are new sounds to hear.

Surprised people aren't giving Hub more love. It's got some very cool textures and melodies going on!

 
Hub is up there with Recury as well. Love it. Cipater too. Those three tracks are from another world.
my thing is mainly that hub goes on for too long. the sound design in it is unreal, though

my thing about calbruc is that the loop is very cool but again goes on too long before other stuff comes in. still a great track.

Am I the only one who gets a devil may cry 1 vibe from Hub? The distorted and muffled carnival music type sounds that fade in from time to time just sound exactly like some of the sounds from dmc.

Chiastic is amazing but I wouldn't say it's even in my top 5 ae.  Everything after it is just too good

 

By music in general standards it's a 10/10 hands down

By ae standards it's a 6/10 in my book

Cipater's gradual mutation into its second phase 

 

The first time I heard Chiastic it was on a scratched-to-fuck CDR copy that a schoolmate lent me. The disc played fine mostly, but would skip to shit for about a minute in the middle of Cipater, right where the transition is. So for years the Cipater transition was a mystery to me and I desperately wanted to know how it happened. Then eventually I bought a proper copy, and it basically sounded the same as the skipping CD lawl

Still unbeaten as my favourite autechre album - I think it not only changed how I listen to music, but also changed how i think, just a little bit.

Not sure my girlfriend was too impressed when i played the whole album extra-loud yesterday morning though - another ten or so playthroughs will win her round I reckon.

yeah its amazing, i think it needs ten or more playthoughs for everyone tho. The songs are just so immersive, always thought of this as a purely experiment based album, and it is, just in the best possible way. LP5 5 is great and carries on the sound design trajectory. But this album man, its just a fucking pinpoint.
