Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

If proof is needed that one man's tuneless bleeping is another man's electronic masterpiece, exhibit A would surely be Autechre. From the title on down (Untilted--geddit?), this is an album that will have conservative rock fans pulling off their ears, howling at the lack of 'real tunes' contained herein, whereas those with ears more accustomed to off-kilter beats, strange noise and a penchant for finding melody and beauty buried in the near-random soundscapes, will have a field day. The tracks ('songs' doesn't quite seem like a justifiable description) contained on here echo some of Autechre's finest work, both as artists and as remixers. Opener "LCC" melts from its initial metallic percussion loop into a softer, textured ambient mood piece, and the running time is enough to allow the song to complete a gradual shift, without sounding laboured (indeed, most of the tracks on here stretch to nearly 10 minutes, with closing masterpiece "Sublimit" – reminiscent of Tortoise's "Djed" in its multipart Teutonic structure--clocking in at 15).

As the album flies by, so do the various sounds, ping-ponging between channels like super-fast flies and adding to the ambience sculpted within. Danceable it ain't, but as a think-piece, it's very effective. --Thom Allott

I remember when Autechre were asked how long one must study in order to listen to their music and they said about a second or less. Well I wouldn't agree with them there cos we aren't all as clever as them. Give this CD at least a month of listening before passing any judgement oh and another thing buy the CD cos if you go listening to mp3s you wont hear anything.
Opener LCC is very dark but breaks down into a more mellow piece towards the end - very powerful piece.
Ipacial Section is chaotic and the melody is very strange unlike any other types of music available you can hear elements of this chaos in the live tour which accompanied the album.
Pro Radii - i wish i had speakers that could do this track justice cos its simply stunning and very powerful a firm favourite.
Augmatic Disport - possibly the most difficult track to follow -very complex especially the beginning
Iera - i dont know what is going on here but it sure sounds good.
Fermium - im not such a fan of this one but totally listenable.
The Trees - i hated this at first but the more i listened to it the more detail i heard and now its probably my favourite on the album.
Sublimit - im still trying to work this out!

I think Autechre haters still come round to the 'noise' thing, and assume that people that like Autechre think that others who don't like them are uncultured, as one reviewer put it.

But that simply is not true, at least not with me anyway, Autechre are experimental, the majority of people will not like them, it's music made for a small group of people, who aren't genetically advanced simply because we like Autechre, Squarepusher e.t.c.

Right now that is off my chest, the album itself is well worth the cash, only one weak song (Pro Radii) which is a bit boring and not in tune with the rest of the album, which is probably more aimed at the dancefloors compared to Draft, indeed I think these songs are best heard live.

You can listen to a few on youtube, warehouse project e.t.c.

It seems fair enough after Confield and Draft 7.30 that Autechre should go a bit more minimal as a few people have mentioned already, but its the melodic content that has been dropped right down, the drums haven't been toned down that much and take centre stage throughout- and it still seems Autechre are incapable of writing a drum beat without developing it in to something a zillion times more complex.

The result is sometimes exciting and sometimes a bit 'much of a muchness'- the soundworld of the synths is suggesting ambient but the untuned stuff is going mental.

I'm giving this 3 stars as someone who likes all of Autechre's output but feels that they're not firing on all cylinders here creatively. I still haven't heard a weak Autechre release.

Building on the strengths of Draft 7.30 Autechre has reached new heights with the latest album, Untilted, producing what are some of the duo's finest moments by a long way in many years. Gone is the oppressive nothingness that so hindered Confield and EP7 and elevated, almost into the full glare of their neon spotlight, is melody and atmosphere albeit swathed in complex rhythmic workouts. These key musical components, virtually absent from some of their recent works, that began to resurface in Draft 7.30 are displayed here lovingly restored to former glory however packaged in brand new, up to date plastics and other high-tech fabrics.
There are so many ideas here it's really amazing; each track sounds like at least three seemlessly spliced together genetic experiments. Warped alien atmospherics mutate into full on cosmic warfare before melting down into synthetic post-apocalyptic symphonies. The merest of electro magnetic pulses shift into gravitational fields that could alter the orbits of passing planets. What was thought dead thrusts its hand up through the dirt only to be shellacked in silicone and whisked into the future, to a meta-glass museum of Autechre that houses a melded combination of what is old and new.
I have the headphones on even now...

This album certainly is not ambient, abstract, broken Idm as you know it! This is delicate sculptured experimentation across non-rhythmic spheres and a variety of mini fragmented rhythmic structures that takes the listener through a mind alternating listening experience though a mishmash of abstract soundscapes featuring fragmented dense beats, beatless ambient space, and funnelled sonic's that are then further crunched with disjointed broken rhythms grafted with dense elements of Idm. This will certainly take a few full listens to really absorb the micro robotic organisms of the hidden clicks and cuts with gradual swirls of glitchy rhythms and beats that funnel through within and along the ambient and twisting abstractness. Each new listen starts to reveal the deeper hidden depths of its sounds, plus the albums sculptured musical components, as they gradually start to emerge through the once complete chaos that seemed at fist. A excellent abstract and experimental album pushing techno, Idm, ambient, abstract, and electronica into the unknown that requires patience and repeated listens to understand and appreciate.
