5.0 out of 5 stars scary and amazing 3 Aug 2002
By E Parry
I definately reccomend that if you buy this Autechre release, you buy this CD/DVD version. Listen to the CD first, you will probably be quite confused and bewildered by the title track, but the next two tracks (Dial and Cap.IV) will make more sense, especially if you're familiar with Autechre (in fact, if you're not familiar with Autechre, you'd be best starting with something else, like Chiastic Slide or Tri Repetae, then moving up to their more recent work). Watch the DVD second. The Gantz Graf video will most likely knock you out of your seat and scare the life out of you. If you've seen the promo pictures of the video, they're a bit misleading. It's very difficult to describe what the video actually looks like when it's moving, but it's very cleverly done and incredible to watch. It also immediately makes the track make a lot more sense. Just watch it, you'll see.
The other two video's are good aswell, although the Basscadet video is from 1994 so the computer graphics look very dated. It's a nice remix of the track though. The final video, Second Bad Vilbel, is directed by Chris Cunningham, who really knows how to make a music video. In a way it's similar to the Gantz Graf video in that the images change and shift along to the music. Having not heard the track before it's hard to imagine it without the video. It's stunning though.
There's also a slide show which allows you to see screenshots from the Gantz Graf video. It's not the same as watching it in motion but it allows you to see the detail of the 3D renderring.
If you're an Autechre fan, or into this scene in general, you'll probably buy this anyway. If you're not into Autechre already however, it's probably a safer bet to buy something else by them first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Autechre, but not quite their best 7 May 2004
Whilst the song and video are indeed excellent, this DVD and single aren't the best stuff you'll hear from Autechre - this is for the established fans, rather than the newcomers. If you're used to their more melodic and older stuff, like Amber or Incunabula, this'll knock you to the ground first time you play it - it's fast and it's loud. None of the melodic 9 minute track style music that you may be used to from thier older music - the title track clocks in at 3 minutes 58 seconds, and it's extreme and vibrant throughout. After a couple of listens, however, you'll get into it, and realise that it is another Autechre masterpiece. And the video is fnatastic, extremely well made and very pleasant to watch.
If you're just getting into Autechre, check out their older stuff first - this certainly isn't the place to start. If you're already into them and their style of music, then this is a must have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic ae 10 April 2003
Good old Autechre. They tend to divide opinions. Some people love their work almost blindly, many people absolutely despise it.
Well, you get out of it what you put in. I think they are fantastic, and won't hear a bad thing said about them. Having said that, I can understand why some people just regard their music as noise. It can be abstract, random sounding - but there is a lot of beauty there, and a lot of hidden structure.
Gantz graf can sound a bit full on, especially at first listen, but listened alongside the visual here, it makes it more palatable to the uninitiated.
This is a superb single, has a different sound from many of their more recent work, and is slightly more accessible than tunes of late - but it's still classic Autechre, and has all their hallmarks. It won't fill any dance floors (well, none of the ones I've been on), but it's a cracking tune.
