Not even the collectors edition with a booklet - what a waste. You do get four "art cards", though :) It is not worth the extra expense. Thanks for saving me some money.

Does anyone know, if the 8-page booklet contains the lyrics?

Autechre have made steady progress since their early albums. Unfortunately, some Autechre fans were unable to follow it. "Exai" is a complex and rewarding masterpiece, if you open your mind to it.

Dead Can Dance - Anastasis marcinkoczot

I was surprised and disappointed when I first saw the letter "B" instead of an autograph. It seems snobby of Brendan Perry to do that.
"Anastasis" is a great album, nonetheless. The "Samsara" soundtrack, which was also released in August, is another excellent work by Lisa Gerrard this year.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor* - Yanqui U.X.O. marcinkoczot

The credits do not mention that Neil Young's theme from "Dead Man" (a 1995 film by Jim Jarmusch) was extensively used in "Motherfucker=Redeemer (Part One)".

I understand you are disappointed with the box set. However, keep in mind that you are rating the MUSIC here, not the perfection of Brendan Perry's autograph. All that we gather from your rating is that Mr Perry gets 1/5 for how well he can sign his own name :)

Autechre - Quaristice.Quadrange.ep.ae marcinkoczot

20 août 2012

It's actually great that "there is almost nothing they've recorded since 2000 that holds any resemblance whatsoever to those classic recordings." "Incunabula" is a good album for the time when it was released, but sounds dated now. "Amber" has stood the test of time better and still sounds great, though not as modern as Autechre's recent work. Since then, Autechre have made continuous progress. The entire "Quaristice" project, comprising "Quaristice", "Quaristice (Versions)", and "Quaristice.Quadrange.ep.ae", is an exceptional achievement. It is forward-thinking, futuristic and definitely more challenging and less accessible than what Autechre did in the 90's. Like other albums they have released since 2000, "Quaristice" is much more complex and the melodies are subdued, instead of dominating the tracks.
I respect your right to your own opinion. However, judging from your review you seem to be among that group of Autechre listeners that expected Rob and Sean to churn out pretty melodies and mellow beats for the rest of their creative career and tuned out at the time of "Confield". I'm very happy that Autechre did not succumb to all the negative critique and did not compromise their unique vision. They keep surprising me and broadening my musical horizons with each new album. Now that they have released more great records ("Oversteps" and especially the awesome "Move Of Ten"), I'm very excited to see what they will come up with next.

Plaid - Scintilli marcinkoczot

I agree with you on the Plaid album. It sounds dated and childish, just as Squarepusher's latest effort. However, I would not compare Plaid with Autechre. They are not similar at all. In my opinion, Autechre have been consistently making innovative, forward-thinking music. "Scintilli" and certain other Plaid releases sound more like Orbital, unfortunately.
