the first part of Fleure is great, i wish there was more material on the album that sounded like it. it doesn't remind me of other ae tracks, it doesn't sound standard or "stock"--what the problem is?

Bought a FleurEast album by accident thinking it was an EP spinoff from the track ...

FLeure as a whole starts out sounding like stock AE (morphing crunchy beats, weird bleepy melody and noises, etc.)
Fleure as a whole starts out sounding like stock music (sounds, rhythms, etc.)

(My point is that your parenthetical description doesn't explain to me what you mean by "stock AE", which I don't understand. Maybe you can pick another track from this "stock" and outline the similarities in more detail?)
Eutow, Acroyear2, Lentic Catachresis, Dial., Fermium, Second Scepe, Flutter, Yeesland, Pencha, Tilapia, Liccflii. I could go on...

Similar details include higher frequency rhythms/hats/percussive hits often frequently changing patterns. Hip hop influenced grooves often at relatively higher BPMs (no, we're not talking Jungle territory, obviously), often featuring bleepy/percussive melodies that can seem random or abnormal, and often more 'normal' sounding pads or bass carrying more 'normal' melodies.

"Stock" doesn't mean that's all they do, or that it's boring, but that is sort of what they're known for.

And hell yes to this. Such a great track.

I quite enjoyed the part where people were threatening to burn the Koran because Warp hadn't released the album yet despite it being less than two months until the album's actual release date (page 152).

Been a while since I read but I imagine the thread goes:

Announcement -> Speculation -> Rumours -> Initial hints and snippets -> Release/Pre-order -> Waiting -> Leaked -> Arrival -> Initial thoughts and pictures -> Post-album reviews -> Pointing to other reviews online -> In depth discussion -> Thoughts a little later -> Thoughts a lot later -> Today.
