One of the most underrated electro/IDM albums of all time
Ricardo Villalobos - Achso
posted a review of Ricardo Villalobos - Achso. 10 months ago
Reminds me more of LP5-era Autechre than anything else; I realize that Ricardo is a tech house guy but he really veers pretty close to IDM at times
Autechre - Confield

bought mine in 2002 from Warp and it had a poster

AOTY, no clue how everyone has slept on this record . . .
Weyes Blood - And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow
posted a review of Weyes Blood - And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow. about 1 year ago
Listened to it quite a few times now . . . slightly better than my first impressions, I'll grant that, but definitely not as good as I'd hoped

(3.5 stars.) Natalie is incapable of releasing a 'bad' record but I dunno man -- definitely a step down from 'Titanic Rising'. Feels like B-sides from 2019.

didn't happen to me, but I saw a seller who has posted only side A&B for sale on Discogs and explained that the factory had made the same error you described. contact Fat Possum and they'll send you a replacement

easily, someone explain to me how this guy is not on every year-end top 100 albums list?

one of the most underrated albums of the 2010s, no clue why this isn't far more popular

This might be the best-sounding vinyl record I've ever heard
A Winged Victory For The Sullen - Atomos

sounds far better at 33.3 rpm, do you have proof or some other indication that it's meant to be played at 45

plays at 33.3 rpm, as indicated by the photo of the record center label above

I received mine via Amazon, bought a regular black vinyl copy and they sent this instead (?!), a mixup at the factory I guess

Helios - Veriditas

'Even Today' and 'Mulier' are at least a decade old (I downloaded 'Mulier' from Keith's blog in 2003), and have long been my favorite two Helios tracks, amazed that they're finally seeing a proper release

Best album released by Schematic and top 5 or so IDM record of all time

You can hear Otto breathing on the entire effing album (mostly through his nose, it's that crystal clear), which is ridiculously distracting. Place the mic somewhere else guys

I just did a very exhaustive search and don't see any indication from any press release, release notes, label website, announcements, etc etc., that this will ever have a non-digital release. Which is strange! But then Alex has released a few MP3... See full review

posted a comment on Nine Inch Nails - Bad Witch. over 6 years ago
Reznor indicated otherwise ... "While Bad Witch was originally set to be an EP, it developed into a full-length album; at 30 minutes in length, it is the band's shortest to date. Reznor initially saw the trio of planned EPs as one long album with... See full review

One of the better BoC clones out there; he should be paying them royalties, seriously, but the music is not bad at all

Very excited to receive this, the first new material from Rob Holloway in a few years --- simply incredible, 5/5
Russell Haswell - 37 Minute Workout
posted a review of Russell Haswell - 37 Minute Workout. over 10 years ago
I've been wanting to hear Haswell try his hand at "regular" beat-oriented electronic music for many years now ... the results are simply amazing. Still overwhelmingly chaotic but tempered with just enough rhythm to improve on his usual sound.
Brothomstates - Rktic
posted a comment on Brothomstates - Rktic. over 12 years ago
I have no CLUE how this is only rated 4.03/5 on Discogs ... easily one of the best 12"s ever released by Warp

Deerhunter - Carve Your Initials Into The Wall Of The Night
posted a review of Deerhunter - Carve Your Initials Into The Wall Of The Night. over 14 years ago
Haunting ambient/found-sound sort of deal; nothing like Deerhunter's usual output, and it bears only a passing resemblance to the most ambient Atlas Sound mp3s (from Bradford's blog).
Phoenecia - Brownout

Criminally underrated! The best album released on Schematic (except for perhaps o9's full-length), with some of the best production I've ever heard; even the album art is just about perfect. A series of fully realized ambient soundscapes (with some... See full review
