Let's not get too excited here, I mean, technically it could suck, right?

I'm yet to hear an AE album that sucks. And I'm somewhat (overly) critical when it comes to music and my favourite artists. Most of the artists I love have dropped in quality quite significantly over the years but Autechre for some reason are very consistent quality-wise to me. I'm not afraid it could suck. They would have to do that deliberately, like completely change their sound design to mainstream EDM or something. Autechre to me is mostly about sound design not so much about composition.

No. Even though you might not like it, it still wouldn't suck. Given that it would definitly bring a whole new "WTF!? Why? What? How?"-mindfuck to break your skull on, if you wouldn't like it. That's AE-101!

they seem to have managed to put themselves in a position that they cannot go wrong: listening with the precognition that it is about autechre one perceives everything according to a conditioned perspective. An experiment with flavor has been done: it seems that if you taste a food convinced that it is good, the brain releases more serotonin, and the taste is actually better.

The harmonic overtones from 0:32 - 0:43 are well lush.  Perfect fifths, would make an excellent fuzz guitar riff.  Imagine a band where the singer could do that consistently.  You'd have a whole new genre of metal.  Or Sunn O))) could just have him guest on something.

Okay so... this could be nothing, but in the email received from Warp, it included a version of the cover without text. I noticed some strange artefact type stuff, at first I thought it was image compression but now I am not so sure.... Anyway, this is probably nothing, I could still just be coming down from the BoC stuff last week.

That's just compression where the text was removed from the image most likely

strange, in my case what makes the difference between others is the fact that every element, even the most exasperated sound, is functional to the compositional purpose

@Draft78 agree!

Genius is the innate mental predisposition through which nature gives the rule to art”. 
— Kant

To say a genius is ‘wrong’ is like saying that a bird looks wrong or that water is moving wrongly.

大家好! I made a listening schedule to follow leading up to the release.

I tried to make it as chronological as possible, going by when it was recorded in some cases, and release dates for others. Example, peel sessions are ordered by recording date, rather than release, and same with AE_LIVE. I tried to include all miscellaneous compilation single tracks not on albums. I didn't bother with remixes, nor did I include gescom. I did include Lego Feet, however. Anyways, hope some of you enjoy this. And let me know if there is anything I missed/is out of order.

See how different perspective we can have and still enjoy the fuck out of it? This is what I love about good art.

If what I just heard (I just couldn't help myself) is indeed new Autechre (and it sounds like it is - si00, I think), it is anything but warm and ambient, but  definitely fluorescent and I absolutely love it.

well, in a recent post I tried to explain why it's not possible (at last for me) to establish which is the best or worst album of autechre, and the reasons behind it are actually the same. The curious thing is that, by pure coincidence, I mentioned Kant, and now I discover that he himself expressed this perspective, only that in writing I made a disaster, he, instead, who is the fucking Kant, put down the definitive words

He even wrote a book about it, critique of judgment.
