A great release. Especially VLetrmx21. It could easily be the theme song for the end of the world. Unforgettable.

Iconic. Of all the AE 12" singles, this would be the one to repress (first)..

The title is the opposite of the contents.
This is not garbage.
This is leftovers from the Amber sessions, but they are beautiful.
Perhaps, even better than Amber itself in some regards.

Anything but Garbage, this is some of Autechre's best work. This was way ahead of its time, and the fact that it still sounds so good 20 years on is evidence of that. Every track on this is amazing, and VLetrmx 21 is one of the best ambient tracks available anywhere. Outstanding release.

Staggering groveallegiance.Mindblowing.Goosebump-inducingl.Nobody is making music today with this many emotions flowing through it, not even Autechre themselves.Vletrmx is music from the heavens.The only track that matches up to it is the Psi-Onyx (Psix Million Dollar Myx Oscar Goldmans Bonus) remix.Thank you Booth & Brown.

Someone remix "Bronchusevenmx24" with "deco Loc" from the Exai LP, it would be like "second Bad Vibel" all over again. I think those two are a match made in heaven.

Did anyone notice the looped theme, that very spine for VLetrmx 21, is from Terminator # 2 's original score ( by composer Brad Fiedel ) ... ??? Remember ...
Elements of ambiguity were introduced by Ae themselves : "garbage" they call it, half a joke, half humility i guess ...

This is release is in my opinion the peak of Autechre's career. It would probably be a great first Autechre album to show somebody what Autechre is all about. To this day I have never heard any artist create something so haunting, almost spiritual, as the track VLetrmx21.

A must have if you enjoy Autechre's Amber album. The first 2 tracks are closer to Amber's style (cool beats, ambient rythyms). While the second 2 tracks are much more drone-ish. The closing track has got to be one of Autechre's best ever... Even though its only a few simple sounds looped over and over, getting louder and more clearer - its just amazing. Must be heard to fully understand.

Garbagemx36 is most probably the best song I've ever heard because it has so much layers, so much good ideas and finally it feels like one long story which incorporates all the good sides of music itself. There's rhythm, there's melody, there are harmonies, there are disharmonies. There are clicks and plops - everything you need. It's like an ode to the humanity with all good and evils together. The song is sad and happy in the same time.
