Finally got ahold of a physical copy of the vinyl. Don't agree at all about the packaging being ugly.
I really love the cover, the box, the art design and all the chosen colours.
Also awesome that it's designed to fit the L-event EP inside too. Slide mine right inside ;)

Autechre really demonstrate their amassed skill with electronic music on this album more than any other. Every detail is altered so much throughout the length of the tracks that I can't tell what they are even doing regardless of how much I listen. This album will provide endless thought and contains all the aural experimentation of previous releases on an even larger scale than before. As previously stated here, the box itself is a very ugly package, much uglier than the photos make it look, but the music inside more than makes up for that.

Brilliant album, that really seems to stand the test of time (not like Oversteps for example)...but that big brown 4LP monolith is a really unattractive physical object.

Thumbs up if you're still listening and considering this album. So dense! Love this one...

A challenging and ponderous listen experience. Over all, many of the elements you have come to expect from AE are present here, but with the addition of sound selections that remind the listener of their older works.
This LP feels like a deconstruction of many of their technical approaches to music making and with that, each song reminds me of other albums in their back catalog.
The biggest question I am facing is not, "is this a good AE album", rather, "am I currently in the mood for this"?
If this LP had been released after "Untilted", it may have been an instant AE classic, but at the moment, my listening interest have slightly shifted and therefore, the aural challenges of this sonic art are more in the forefront then the music its self.
