My copy is slightly warped also. I would rather spend more cash up front for the label to not cheap-out on pressings. It's not cheap-out music, so please don't rip off the supporters. If AE were a football team, they would have been winning all their matches since the mid 90's.... except for the one where they lost due to a substitution for Hafler Trio at the start of the match :0

I am not going to review the tracks... just everytime these guys set a higher standard and this time made me rediscover something that just don't want to explain for anyone else.

Update to my earlier comment - Bleep replaced the entire warped set with new records. The replacements are perfect. Suggest anyone having issues speaks directly to Bleep - they were fantastic in fixing this.

This review is about the 12x vinyl box set.
This is a slightly awkward one to review. The music of course divides opinion but the people who are receptive to Autechre already know who they are. So it's Autechre, you get eight hours of music, an evolution of their sound over previous albums and a very broad range style-wise from drone to frenetic beeps. To me though the sound quality of Autechre's music is as important or maybe more so than the composition. I'll say now that I find the CD releases of their music, at least from Confield era onwards, to be quite a hard listen. The vinyl versions always sound better to me: warmer, less busy/nasty in the treble and a lot easier to listen to (and to make sense of if I'm honest). Why it should be that digitally produced music should sound better through an analogue medium is anyone's guess. I'll be cynical and suggest that it would not be particularly savvy for any music label to take a final master file and press it without any reduction in quality onto a digital consumer medium that can be copied bit for bit with ease. Anyway this does mean that my review is about the medium as much as the music. Unfortunately for me I was one of the unlucky ones who received a box in perfect condition with shrink wrap intact only to open it and find 12 sleeves shaped a bit like Frisbees and half of the records warped. Reviews here on Discogs evidence many similar experiences, though I noticed this week the moderators seem to have culled many of them - maybe they thought these comments weren't relevant (or just not good for business). I did think about keeping the box or ordering a replacement but I felt the issues may well be related to the box and sleeve design. My opinion only. In the end I sent it back and instead ordered the four separate three-disc versions. I received nice flat vinyl in straight sleeves and I'm very happy with the playback quality, especially compared to the digital release. If you have a decent turntable set up then I would definitely recommend buying this album on vinyl, and if you're considering the box version (likely on the used market by now) then just be careful.

Great copy from Bleep, all records are perfect :-) send with a sticker
Great work from Autechre for a long time, "gonk steady one" is my favorite, a reminescence of "Garbagemx36" ?

My box set also has all bent sleeves and warped records (no pun intended) :(
The worst is towards the front (others have stated this too), there’s a lot of the 12 records affected. It doesn’t effect the amazing sound quality, but it’s dissappointing to receive this amazing box set in such poor condition.., bad form Warp

Amazing that not one of the copies on sale here - for up to £70 more than the original retail price - appear to have any of the warping issues that dominate the comments here. These sellers must’ve got really lucky.

Essential manifesto. You can find almost everything style-wise from chiastic slide until today. Selection is very balanced, from super abstract stuff to great chords and brain-melting complex rhythms. Pressing sounds great as well - worth every penny.

My copy arrived in perfect condition, no warping problems. The quality of the boxset is perfect, nice cover art, insane music, and definitely a huge monolith in my collection.

Yet another disappointed owner of a box of bowed sleeves and warped vinyl. I've played the first few records and it is undoubtedly a good pressing but I am gutted that such an expensive and beautifully produced item has arrived in such poor condition. I'm inclined to agree with others who have posited the likelihood of extremely hot warehouse conditions causing the damage. Will be reporting the issue to Bleep although not sure what they can do about it...

Yes, the inner covers and records are slightly warped but as stated quite a few times now it doesn't affect the play. Except for "g 1 e 1" the pressing is superb and chrystal clear. The packaging is great and we don't have to talk about the music... pure mindfuckery blizz.
