:music: for some reason it is reassuring / comforting to have at an affirmation of a future release, even if you have no idea when it will actually come.

 

 

take notes boc

 

 

one thing is for sure about this album: it will sound like autechre. and it will sound like autechre doing something new.

 

amen

certainly don't want to sour the mood but my zeal for all things ae has declined a bit over the last two full-lengths and MoT. I really liked Oversteps, but at the same time, feel it's not as autechre-y as past albums. In the same way that I really liked Campfire Headphase, but found it not as Boccy as their other releases.

 

I'm still really looking forward to it, just not as crazily as in the past. Overall I thought MoT was really mediocre...

but it won't sound like any of their previous albums, as has been the case with each new one. I don't believe there's any reason to think their work will decline.

Oversteps is really good but too long.

 

i agree. Wish they would've rethought the remainder of the album after treale. It has some highlights (I for one like krylon, though others slate it), but it doesn't have as coherent a feel as the first half. Seems like a collection of random thrown together stuff (a bit like MoT).

If you ask me it has. It's still really good, but for me Quaristice was the turning point (or, arguably Untilted). Though I think Oversteps is better than either of those (sue me). The run from Tri Repetae through Draft was just incredible, for any artist. Hard not to see it as a long, sustained peak of creativity and productivity.

 

Anyhoo. Sorry I'll shut up. I am excite, too. I do believe they will always drop something surprisingly awesome from time to time, like the incredible live stuff...

      I brought up this thought in the dedicAtEd thread for Untilted but I think it is an interesting enough idea generally speaking. Here's the alternate order I came up with for their 2005 offering, Fermium is not removed because I dislike the song but because it feels like the odd one out. This is just my first attempt at this and I don't think I have a better sequence than S and R (fucking love this album the way it is as it is), but it is fun to try rejigger things a bit and see if there are some nice ways of changing the sequencing, just for fun

      1. LCC
      2. The Trees
      3. Augmatic Disport
      4. Ipacial Section
      5. Iera
      6. Pro Radii
      7. Sublimit

      Here's what auxien said about this new order/removing Fermium:

      "hm, not sure about Fermium on its own, feels naked like that. but it is a little bit of an odd one out on the album perhaps, so i see the case there. 
      random thoughts listening to this tracklisting:
      LCC as opener and Sublimit as closer is necessary, good work on not trying to fuck with that not sure about The Trees as track 2, feels a little too close in shape to LCC Ipacial into Iera is fucking great Iera into Pro Radii works pretty well Pro Radii into Sublimit works pretty well too  overall not as offensive as i'd expected trying to tweak what's pretty close to a perfect album. may see about doing an alternate tracklist of my own"
