Almost through my first listen, my god it's good. Very Anal/Tussy but I'm not complaining

 

I actually quite like that it's going to be an evolution of those styles (2.5 hours until I can listen....). It's almost like he's finally saying, 'it's all me, guys'. Even though he's not revolutionising music forever, it sounds like the biggest surprise is his willingness to blow apart the stigmatised 'Aphex Twin' name and show it for what it's always been: a brand.

 

To be honest I think his music released outside of the AT moniker is as good if not better.

Circlont14............jesus.... that breakdown.... this album is really really good.... anyone else notice that Circlont6a and Syro_u473t are remixes of each other?

Piezoluminescence is awesome. Singapore was great to hear, especially the end which I'm not really familiar with. Earth Portal is killing it.

 

I wish Metz was a little faster

In the middle of my first listen now (on track 8 at the moment). FUCKIN' AWESOME ALBUM!! Exceeding my expectations by a long shot! Pleasantly surprised numerous times by little things that happen here and there, but I'm also very happy with the overall mood of the whole piece, so far.

How can two tracks be remixes of each other? Like, is the chicken a remix of the egg or is the egg a remix of the chicken? Hmm...

Produk 29, Syro u473t8+e, Papat4 (pineal mix), Aisatsana, 180db_, 4 bit 9d api+e+6 are the one for me

 

plus a special mention to Minipops of course,

 

the rest seems more complicate to digest so far, they need more insight

 

the whole release is beyond my expectations, strangely enough i'm finding XMAS-EVET10 (Thanaton3 mix) too spreaded and long,

the vinyl experience would change that normally

xtra lush insane 10/1)===-

 

I am lost for words

 

it started off with minipops and i was "yay, minipops" but somehow it was strangely more layered than when i listened to it before. might be because of the ... well i d ont know

 

then xmas eve and that turned out to be a delight of all sorts. many feels were felt: at 10 minutes i thought it woudl never end. i felt semi-sad halfway through, but the last few bits just... :yhh:

 

produk 29 just pushed me in my seat and then lifted me up, squired me down; melody lines. evverywhere

 

4bit turned out to be a very awesome treat. i couldnt tell you why; you have to listen to it

 

180db triggered many memories because this was played at the aphex twiwn set at lowlands festival 2011, which was my first time visiting the aphex and a major turning event point in my life. i didnt know that 180db was this track, and that i heard it unbeknowingly :g

 

circklon is awesome

just insane jerking over and over

 

pseudoemetitmetstmstretstch <

 

then after shrymoming syro portalled me to the garden and everything was axtral ush

I didn't pay much attention to Aisatsana on the first listen, but now... I like it just as much as Nanou 2.

 

My favourite Aphex Twin album is RDJ and this Syro doesn't change that.

 

But it's very good.

 

It's very very good.

when those bass sweeps come in at 4.45 of Earth Portal. Need to hear that on a big system!

 

I listened to the album for the first time last night in my car...I almost shit myself when that bass hit. Fucking perfection, Richard. Perfection.

So what's in the digital exclusives? Anyone else hoping for SAW3? I bet it would be killer.

(Complain all you want but there's a lot of hype regarding a 2nd album, matches the /mu/ post with the Clark album as well.)

An 'Aphex Twin' release is always going to generate a huge amount of criticism (good and bad) and it seems like he got bored of that judgemental side of the industry. For that reason, I never thought we'd see another Aphex Twin album. With Syro, not only has he chosen to step back into the critical spotlight, but he's done it with a record which doesn't sound 100% original/from the future (just incredibly good). He clearly loved the stuff he recorded as The Tuss and felt confident enough to showcase that side of his writing to the public, I think that's awesome.

 

Anyway, an hour until I can finally listen to this thing! I am ready!

People comparing this to The Tuss and I just don't feel that way about it. I see them as two totally different works which can't be related. IMO

 

Sometimes I feel like I'm listening to a video game sound track which isn't a bad thing.
