Listening to psin AM on headphones makes me realize how unique Autechre are.

Normal producers check their work on shitty sound systems to make sure it sounds ok. Used to be car stereos, now it's probably phone speakers.

Autechre, of course, don't do this. Without all the little details psin AM sounds *boring as hell* but what do they care? Just listen on headphones, you f-in normie

perhaps i trust the good people of WATMM over Big Googles 😉

No problem; WATMM is here for the finer details, (filtered through a mesh of passion and adolescent bickering).  Google serves as a first front anti-ignorance gate; you might have easily established the veracity of PLUS via google, no trust required, then basked in the glory of your new found knowledge as you joined the rabble on WATMM in their praise/puzzlement/demands.

 

It's not as if that intermediary step takes all that much effort.  Surely less time than it takes to field snarky responses from crodgity old farts like myself.

Y'all need to shut your asses about the design LOL. IMO this shit is way better than the fucking blocks and circles of elseq, the boring text "design" of NTS and the QR code ass looking thing on exai. What did you guys want? Some blocks wouldn't do the sound and feel of these albums justice, neither would some spastic fucken computer thingy on the cover a la draft/ untilted. This artwork encaptures the moods of both albums very well.

 

Rant over lol

i totally agree the art is better than on elseq or exai. on the physical copy I think it looks pretty sweet. the superbright orange color of the inner sleeve works really well.

the sleeve art for the Plus LP reminds me of BP shells logo 

The Helios - our logo

Our logo was launched in 2000 and was designed as a dramatic break with tradition. Two decades later, it is still unlike any other energy identity and symbolises a number of things – not least our greatest source of energy: the sun itself
 

The colours of the Helios – named after the Greek god of the sun – suggest heat, light and nature. It is also a pattern of interlocking shapes: like bp, a single entity created by many different parts working as one. This was particularly relevant, as the new brand was launched after a series of mergers and acquisitions. It united all the heritage companies and employees that now make up bp and its global brand.

 
just some free-association

elseq was silly as well imo.

i personally adore the subtleness of lp5, ep7, peel session II covers, so sign seems too "obvious" and vulgar to me.
just saying...

Elseq was a digital release. It's hard6unfair to compare. 

Exai has a very sweet inner design imo.

And I like the SIGN/PLUS design too.

Okay, I guess nothing ever will beat Chiastic and Quaristice designs for me, but I can live with that. It's to much a first world problem for me to complain about the cover of my favourite bands next amazing album. I accept what it is.
