it is so different that it is impossible to make a comparison. Perhaps there is a point of contact with jatevee C and YJY UX, but the context has profoundly changed

Maybe that's the reason.

More  than any other other album this feels like a distillation of everything they've done previously. With all of the contemporary production.

Anyone else hearing what seems to be deliberate “remixing” or mutations of previous tracks (kinda like sinister sintrail)? Track 3=bqbq and eastre, Track 2=known1, etc??

Going to listen for this - hadn't noticed yet.

Sign is hip-hop, if we see hip-hop as a deeply rooted system of growth and language and construction, so pervasive that it can be felt more easily than seen. It is not necessarily helpful to say that Sign is hip-hop, but it is also true and confusing.

:facepalm:

Did this reviewer just discover hip-hop, like, yesterday?

Okay, maybe not LP5, but Oversteps... let's overlook the trilogy that escaped me of Confield, Draft 7.30 and Untilted.

I absolutely don't see those as being a trilogy. Confield was kind of ending, Untilted was a kind of beginning, and Draft was something of a one off; there were definitely Confield-ish moments, but I don't hear anything Untilted-ish.

well, for now I find little relationship with draft - untilted period, and I find the introduction of new faces, there are lyrical parts (esc desc is a sort of Hans Zimmer immersed in the fog), and nuances that remind me of Emeralds and 70's psychedelia ( gr4 ). All these references were obviously crushed by a millstone precipitated from outer space

That's fair enough. To clarify, I always thought if those three albums as being their "difficult" period. A softee like me just couldn't get into them, and they lost me. Especially Untilted because it gives me an actual headache every time I try to listen to it.

Yeah. That was kind of my point. It feels like it's distant from all that. A bit like Oversteps was. There are influences, of course... but it's sort of nostalgic.

It's weird, innit, especially since they defined electro so concisely

I wonder if something from the conversation with SB & RB led to that statement. Odd if not, because this comes off as being the least "hip hop" Autechre record in 20 years.

The positive reactions to this have me hyped, but the comparisons to OPN/BoC/several other artists I don't care for have me nervous. What am I in for?
