Sixly sweet year old Autechre Album Released: Exai (WARP234)

Recommended Posts

It's also really damn close to being the physical release date of the album in the japanese yy-mm-dd date format (in fact so close I can't help thinking it's either a mistake of the art work (needs an extra pixel in the bottom right) or was meant to be released a day earlier) :

It seems plausible. I always thought it might have some binary or hex matrix in there, but I'm not knowledgeable in these methods. Your field work, mcbpete?

p.s. what is the purpose of the descending byte order in top row?

That's just the usual order of bits in binary for conversion to decimal (Most significant (i.e. largest power of 2) on the left, and the smallest (2^0) on the right)

Not my field of work (cant remember what wizard here found this out), but have known about bit patterns since I was proper little (used to make little monochrome sprites on the Commodore 64 when I was about 7 or 8!)

We only have fake leaks and I’ve been listening to those for years now; they’re quite good

I’ve concluded that Bladelores is the best tune of not only this album, but probably the best I’ve heard from this entire decade. Or at least one of them. Autechre really hooked me in with this release.

i know someone's (or a lot of someones) going to revoke my AE Fanclub Membership got saying this, but Bladelores has never really done it for me. I think it's one of the weakest tracks on EXAI.

=/

 

I still think EXAI is (and will probably always be) a top 3 album in my AE favorites list.... but.... <shrug>

maybe it's because I don't really click much with their first two albums.... and Bladelores seems to have the same kind of atmospheric feeling (again, just IMO, I'm sure many others feel very differently)... 

 

alright.... let the 'LET'S BASH HK FOR BEING A RIDICULOUS, PATHETIC, SMALL DICKED SOD!!!!' posting begin!!

=D

Nah man you’re allowed to have your opinions. I respect it a lot. I mean, I’m a person with like, way too many unpopular opinions for stuff I like/dislike. XP

I agree with what you wrote: I find exai perfect, it is impossible to establish a priority between the first and second disc, yet bladelores is the song that less won me over, and the thing is all the more strange if I take into consideration the fact that All End, which extends the final of bladelores for an hour, click for me more and more, listening by listening (where before I heard a drone, now I sense a series of repeated notes in a texture so dense as to create a single sound beam). Anyway, in my case is Irlite get (0) one of the highest points of the entire album.

1 1 is is the best Exai track and people who think bladelores is the best Exai track are the same kind of people that think tt1pd is the best NTS track (disgusting imo)

yeah absolutly, these tracks all rule so hard, especially the last 2

also count me in the group that doesnt ´get´bladelores,  probably my most skipped on the album.  i like parts of it, and it hints at brilliance when the rubbery springy sounds reinforce the plodding beat, but then it just kind of fizzles out for the entire second half and overstays its welcome

I could listen to the last part of Bladelores for another 5 or 10 minutes, it`s almost Gas or Roach territory, a nice bit of head breathing space from the alien onslaught.
