Dude, fuck you guys. bob and sam gets better as they go along. elseq was great. You all have just too many expectations, and you wanted him to stroke your "amber" cock, but that's not where they are anymore. Geezus fucking Krist, why is this a discussion? There are no real deep insights here, only vague gestures toward feelings and what you wanted out of the album and disappointment with the hype (which was just FUN, what the fuck is wrong with that, now?!) and it's SO TIRESOME. How about this? How about you do something? How about you just put things in their proper place? It's music. It's actually good music. It's actually really good music. I check up here every once and a while because I'm hoping to hear about some news, and this forum usually delivers, but so help me is this place becomes another xltronic. Get a grip, mutherfuckers. It's not like Autechre did a fucking cheesy, lame 180 and wrote songs about "slo-mo on the dildo.." or whatever FSOL did around 2002. His music always holds up. "Oh, I didn't like the cheesy lead on 13x0 step, or the mixing on foldfree casual" Fuck off. Get a life. Goddammit. You guys are better than this.

 

Very well said :)

the real question is, do Autechre know that the last thing they'd want in their Burger King burger is someone's foot fungus? But as it turns out, that might be what they get?

To be fair, you have to have a very high iq to understand they've released around 14hrs of new material since then.

But yeah, it would be nice to have a new 'album' album
