Some sort of derivative of The Tuss. Won't be as busy, it'll be more interesting though.

its a nice a release but new aphex will always sound further developed than the stuff he released before. This is just a pretty good cover of old aphex but there is no progression in style. Just more of what we have

Do people generally feel that the Analord series sounded more developed than previous afx releases? I'm not even sure that 'developed' is the right term. Is it based on complexity? Or textures? Melody? Programming?

That's a great question for watmmers.. I get the sense that many people on the forum feel that Analord series are something extra special, maybe because of the whole acid-purist thing. I, personally, could never get behind that. I think there is some utter genious and beauty within the series, but most of it sounds so similar to me, but then again, the whole endless hardcore 303 squawk underneath 808s style may just not be my cup of tea. That's also how I felt about The Tuss.. I respect the brilliance of the work, but musically, and from a personal listening standpoint, I'm kinda of meehh about it.. There are select Analord tracks that are unique/weird that break from the standard Analord 303 vibe though that I need to rediscover. Maybe I'll make my own custom Chosen Lords mix (:

If you get technical into the production some tracks on the analord series are more developed than the most ambitious tracks on druqks for example yes. Try to recreate vordhosbn and xmd5a. You will notice a difference

Yes, I agree in that the Analord series has a lushness to the production compared to Drukqs. An A/B comparison to the quality of instruments shows an obvious difference. There's a big difference in the mastering as well.

 

But I also agree with Lane Visitor that the palette used on Analord to be limited which harks back to early acid. It's not a criticism though. It IS called Analord for a reason.

 

If there's to be a more developed approach to his compositions, it would either need to be a fairly drastic change, which Analord was to an extent compared to RDJ Album and Drukqs yet it mirrored his earlier compositions, or it still be a meld comparable to The Tuss maybe.

 

Or he could try more of this which I felt was an interesting approach but was a lot more novelty than interesting musically:

Isn't the saying 'speculate to accumulate'?

 

Seems to be lots of speculation these days on the Aphex sub forum. Shame there's no accumulation lol

some kind of dubstep new age fusion crap that dubstep people will acknowledge and think is cool, but will be too advanced for anyone to be able to bite without sounding like a total asswipe.

I was always under the impression that the whole analord old-school acid sound was something of a "piss-take" (as they say), whereas RDJ was always annoyed by people copying him, so he decided to release some old school sounding crap so that all the tools would copy that instead. in fact, i thought i heard that here.

I really want to hear this musique concrete experimental album he claims he's sitting on. The remote controlled orchestra thing at least to me was very exciting and I hope he eventually puts out some kind of recording of it.

for me thing missing from a lot of the new (but also very good) braindance music off of Rephlex is the experimental, dark and atonal vibes that aphex is so good at peppering through out even some of his catchiest tracks.

I really dig the parts in Death Fuck and Rushup Bank 12 where the real piano comes in to accompany the electronics, i'd be down for a whole album based around that concept.

HAHAHAH! That's fucking awesome if that was rdj's real intention. fuck, he just keeps getting more and more brilliant , the more i learn about him, or at least the speculations about him lolol (either he keeps getting more brilliant in my eyes or his fans theories keep expanding into awesome complexities- probably a little bit o both)

i highly doubt it was a pisstake, but it was definitely an intentional concept where he stripped his composition style down to the barest essentials. As much as i'm not a fan of the whole Roland synth fetish, i still think Analord is very top tier in terms of music made on hardware. Obviously though there was a certain point where he consciously wanted to avoid being lumped into the breakcore and drill scenes that exploded after Drukqs. Analord has a significant influence on electronic music, i think it started a new trend of returning back to hardware.

Wish he'd once again drink from the fountain that enabled him to create Selected Ambient Works II, though I guess that's probably not in the cards.

Something along the lines of the slick shiny produced analord sound, and with a more Selected Ambient Works II approach would be nice.

 

 

failing that, farts it is. Entitled "smlyfrtsgbng"
