Ahhhh, Aphex Twin. Some of your cooler stuff I'll never own because of scalpers and/or greedy Discogs sellers. If you don't want it, don't buy it in the first place! So sick of people buying vinyl to make personal profit. I know there's nothing illegal about it, but it just artificially creates limits (further than what was already limited) for the actual fans. Nobody has £500 to drop on Syro.

Thankfully I was able to get the Manchester vinyl for £20 and my friend sold me his copy of London for £6.

In my opinion not so good as "Drukqs" but nevertheless very enjoyable, interesting game of sounds with nice uplifting and also melancholic tunes. Sounds are very original very Aphex Twin. My top track is "MARCHROMT30A edit 2b 96".

When syro first released it didnt reel me in like his previous release have in the past, it felt more conserved and less ground breaking that Drukqs for example.

5 years later, this record has become established in my personal top 5 records of all time if not number 1. the depth, intimacy and attention to detail is astounding, every single listen brings something new to the my ears, with each track being a pristine mosaic of hardware bliss, mixed to perfection and mastered right into that sweet spot of warmth and punch these track deserve.

What astonishes me about this record is how every single detail, bassline, drum hit, transition from idea to idea is executed with such intent and attention. Nothing here feels like a happy accident, its crafted by someone who is so attuned to the mechanics of electronic music that when the gear doesnt do what it should, he's able to corral the machines into submission..

Syro is a contemporary classic, bringing together the dance side of electronic music with intimate, emotive composition. couple this record with Aphex Twin - London 14.09.2019 and Syro's sister single, Aphex Twin - MARCHROMT30a Edit 2b 96 for a truly contemporary definition of Braindance and proof to anyone who'd argue against electronic music's ability to be expressive, playful but thoughtful and innovative.

Nice work rich, you crazy bastard!

One of RDJ’s best works and the pressing I have from Bleep sounds amazing. I don’t understand why anyone who enjoys electronic music would have a hard time enjoying this record as well. All of the synths and drums sound like they are having a great time in the hands of the master.

It took me a while to enjoy this album, but it has really grown on me. It's classic Aphex. The whole thing is great.

Im not going to whine about the lp pressing because I don't buy vinyl but the cd sounds amazing.
Even in 2019 I am amazing how complex yet how much more accessible this release is compared to some of Aphex's releases in the last decade and a half. He focuses on really interesting rhythmic juxtapositions but utilizing sounds and textures we electronica fans are most familiar with i.e. a ton of analog bass lines, sweeps, drum sounds and so on and so forth.
A really solid effort I only recently have learned to appreciate but then again AT is like vintage wine it never gets rancid only improves thru age adding complexity and finesse!

I thought it was a great pressing. You can hear some noise in the last track, but other than that it's great in my book.

Not sure about the complaints here, but I find this pressing great-sounding. My issues are, all three discs are slighty warped, which thankfully does not affect playback in any way (Bleep needs to step up on their packaging game), and I have a pressing defect right on the last track, which I've already contacted support and they can send a replacement.

PS: got my replacement long ago, and still thoroughly enjoying it!

Does anyone actually have a copy that doesn't have all the distortion on the right speaker channel?! 1st disc especially. Went on the Hoffman forum and most people say the same except for a cpl "mine's fine." Dunno if I trust people... I (possibly idiotically) assume they just casually had it playing in the bg and didn't happen to notice. The distortion drives me nuts! Ridiculous for such an absolutely amazing album...
