4.0 out of 5 stars Electronic meat grinder soundscaping 14 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
First of all, whilst I've heard a lot of Autechre's material, this was the first album I heard. I was expecting it to be uncomfortable listening, edgy, unlistenable abstract techno. Well, it is, but only for a few seconds. A few seconds, that's how long it takes for the songs to establish themselves. It is here where the head is filled with cold, clinical industrial imagery. Pretty soon, though, the rhythms become drones and you're sucked in, hypnotised, comfortably at one with the machines. It's a pleasent sensation, and because most of the tracks are lengthy affairs, you spend a lot of the album floating happily in a vat of oil, or something. It's only when the next track grinds into life where the flow stops. You're shaken awake rather rudely and all is not well, before you settle back down again into the groove.
Each track has a different feel. It's a cliche to say so, but the album really is like a journey, an exhibition of different mental states. This is real Metal Machine Music. Far from unlistenable, I have trouble stopping myself from picking it up every time I tease a CD from the rack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glad I'm not alone liking this album! 31 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD ages ago, and dropped this note on the way to get 'Confield'. Chiastic slide is heavy on granular synthesis, so don't expect the fat sounds of commercial (and predictable) dance music. People that think techno music is a dead end should listen to CS and revise their ideas. I was so impressed with this album that it has heavily influenced my own music since. Autechre seem to balance the rhythm, sound and melody elements perfectly, even on Rettic AC which appears to be a wall of noise at first. Even the name shows a touch of genius - chiastic flow is a term used in fluid dynamics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy 19 April 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
With Chiastic Slide, the delicate clunks and clicks of Tri Repetae, Autechre's previous full-length release, have been embedded in a sea of static and become twisted and broken, creating some fabulously disjointed, yet strangely cohesive rhythms. Cipater's beat at first is loud and banging and you get the feeling that it could just break apart at the seams, but halfway through the song it morphs and slows down, changing the entire feel of the song. The way Autechre manipulate sound and mess around with while you're listening to it is taken to a new level on Chiastic Slide. Other tracks worth of note are the crunchy, bassy Cichli, and Recury which has an atmosphere comparable to being in a steelworks. Overall, Chiastic Slide is my favourite Autechre release, although you may feel a little lost if you don't get Tri Repetae first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Computery excellence. 10 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
This sets the benchmark for every Autechre record from 97 onwards, the minimal synth sounds twirling in the background seem to be in a contest with the listener with the heavy hip hop beats for attention, the beats win on most occassions, although with mutiple listens, you may actually start to appreciate the melody in the background.

Like most Autechre records(excluding Incunabula), it's hard to take in at first which is why I don't understand the uproar over it's so called 'coldness', what does that mean anyway? Tri was a bigger progression from Amber but it did not stop people liking it.

Overall a fine effort from the boys.

5.0 out of 5 stars what a trip... 7 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Great album - lots to keep you interested - even good in the background when beavering away.
The first track starts out sounding like a futuristic factory - clunks, static, etc, repetitive and dark...after about 3 mins this delicately morphs into a beautiful simple oriental inspired sound.
Track 4 is good for bassheadz with plently of low end humming.
Good stuff if you need some creative's easy to sit, listen and let your mind wander (and I don't do ganja ;O)
