Autechre's latest could definitely be the soundtrack to a robot versus alien action flick. The best thing about this album is that you can listen to it quietly and still get the full effect (IMO for the first time with them). Maybe it's because each drum hit sounds like 10 drum hits on top of each other. And of course, if you want it loud, it goes there too, with plenty of little creaks and moans hidden in the sped-up percussion hits. It continues the line from Drafts because of the reduced reliance on conventional tonal structure. This is for people who love percussion.
If you really want to know what I think:
Untilted shows progress in compositional techniques, freeing individual sounds from their role or function in the song and allowing them to retain their autonomy as discreet phenomena. Where previous albums have been sonic "landscapes," I hear the movement toward "still life" from Drafts much further developed here. In other words, if you want to think of previous albums as showing what another planet might look on the surface (or even what the architecture might look like), Untilted perhaps details the specificity of objects in alien life. What do alien plates, fruit, umbrellas, piggy-banks, and toys look like? Listen to this album and you will see it in your mind. And yes, there is a track called 'the trees' on there, but I still see it as a departure from soundscapes and an arrival at integrated beats.

I totally disagree with the comment above - this album is packed with deeply embedded melodies, at first listen you'll be punched in the groin by the funk and not hear much else, but if you have the patience to pursue this masterpiece further, you'll discover a wealth of intricacies; attention to detail is quite astounding. Some would render this album as the audio equivalent to sitting in a tin bus shelter whilst a mate outside throws his coinage shrapnel at the roof of said construction...

But maybe that's a good thing, yes?

Untilted is the most arrogant showcase of their undeniable (unique) technical skills in the coldest and most minimalistic way they have ever done. I didnt like it much! Their dissonant era is getting tedious, it feels like a glass of water in a cold winter night!
