This review is from: Oversteps (Audio CD)
For me, Autechre reached a creative peak with `Confield' and `Draft 7.30'. The albums before, starting with the earliest works, were just steps on the road to achieving what I believe Autechre will be remembered for in the years to come. Those two albums were like nothing else I'd heard before. `Untilted' was good, but not as good and I felt that `Quaristice', with the exception of a few good moments, was disappointing. So I assumed that they had pretty much had their day and that `oversteps' was going to be yet another indication that Booth and Brown were probably thinking about retirement. I couldn't have been more wrong and surprised. It isn't `Confield' - there's no generative, constructive/deconstructive methods that I can hear. Indeed, sonically, there is little of the alien sound-scapes of `Confield' or `Draft 7.30'. Yet it is unmistakably Autechre - challenging, clever and brilliant. If I had to choose a previous Autechre album that it reminded me of it would be `LP5'. It's clear that Booth and Brown have a lot more to offer, and I for one am very pleased with that.
