Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Autechre (Audio CD)
Sorry, but I just didn't find this album difficult at all. I'm rather amazed that everyone found this such a 'grower' they had to hear multiple times to appreciate. Maybe it's because I bought Confield before this one (By-the-by, if you found this album too 'avant-garde' to tolerate, then I wouldn't go anywhere near Confield- if LP5 is is 'taxing', then I don't know what Confield is).
Original and quite warm, with some cool beats and charming interludes, this is probably the last Ae album that you could tap your foot along with the music. These are some great tunes.
Maybe I've just been listening to alternative/electro for too long, but I'd say the 'difficulty' of LP5 is over-exaggerated. This is simply a unique and groovy slice of electro-jazz. Worth a look, but I'd agree it isn't one to start with: try Amber or Tri Repetae first.
