5.0 out of 5 stars Reach the top 18 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD
So far 2014 has been an excellent year for high quality downtempo electronica with previous releases by Echaskech, Boozoo Bajou and Boards of Canada all nailing it, as does this 8th release by Plaid. While it took some time for me to get into Not for Threes and Restproof Clockwork, this impressed me much on first full listen. Although never as difficult to listen to as much as Warp stablemates Autechre, Aphex Twin or Squarepusher, Reachy Prints is even more accessible than previous stuff. I've now played it through five times over three days and it still sounds good. Almost definitely their best release, which is nice to say considering the sub-par efforts of the previous 2 or 3 releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best album for a long time 25 May 2014
By N Snow
Format:Audio CD
I'm going to keep this one short. If you have listened to Plaid before please read section A, if not then please focus on section B.

Section A: This is one of the best albums of Plaid's career. It is typically playful, creative, exquisite and enjoyable yet with a measure of consistency that surpasses most of their other albums. At 9 tracks in length it is a lot more concise and manageable than albums like 'Double Figure' or 'Trainer' and virtually every song is top quality. The beats are a little more simplistic in places, enabling Plaid to focus their efforts on what they do best, piling on endless layers of squelchy, plinky, playful synths. While Scintilli saw the duo heading in a more 'Autechre' kind of direction, 'Reachy Prints' sees them returning to a kind of 'Boards of Canada'/'Orbital' area, and it works. What amazes me is that they are still able to produce music of this quality after so many years without running out of ideas. If you want to preview a few tracks before you buy then try 'Hawkmoth', 'Martin Lunaire' or 'Tether'. Enjoy.

SECTION B: If you are a fan of slightly abstract electronic music but find the likes of 'Aphex Twin' and 'Squarepusher' a little hard to listen to, then I would definitely recommend a listen to Plaid. This new album is certainly one of their best and it is a fantastic, concise album to start with. The tone of Plaid's music is basically light-hearted and bouncy electronic synths, weaved into an ever changing tapestry. The beats are simple and there are never any lyrics, it is simply just 'music' in its purest form. If you scan briefly through the tracks then you will totally fail to grasp the appeal of this group. You need to listen to one song from start to finish, then move onto an album if you enjoyed it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't reach far enough... 20 May 2014
Format:Audio CD
I wanted to like this album so much. I've followed Plaid's output for quite a few years now, and embrace their more 'difficult' projects such as 'Spokes' & 'Greedy Baby' just as much as their mainstream successes.

For me, the problem with 'Reachy Prints' is one of originality. Plaid have a hallmark 'sound' that permeates through much of their work - little stylistic moments, tell-tale phrases, playful juxtapositions, delicate off-kilter melodies, a 'hook' that harks back to the golden IDM era of the 1990s..., BUT Plaid have always managed to present these motifs, these emblematic ideas, in an original manner from album to album - you recognize the touch but the tune still carries the necessary surprise. With 'Reachy Prints', I feel as if Plaid have made a bit of a recycled album, but at the same time an album that doesn't feel finished or fully realized.

Many times, whilst listening, I found myself thinking that 'this' idea had been lifted from 'Double Figure', 'that one' from 'Scintilli', and quite a few from 'Spokes'... I think that is the trouble here. 'Spokes' wasn't that well received [although I really like it], and 'Reachy Prints' often sounds like a second try at convincing the listener that they were 'wrong' before.

There is little on 'Reachy Prints' that Plaid haven't done better - and with more sincerity - elsewhere, save for the wonderfully bouncy-yet-melancholy-tinged 'Hawkmoth' which delivers a genuine pleasure this album had no hope of living up to, or maintaining.

'Hawkmoth' then, is the stand out track. It and 'Tether', the other promo track for 'Reachy Prints', seem to be cut from a very different - and far superior - cloth to the rest of the album.
