4.0 out of 5 stars This groove ... I do deeply dig, 1 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Autechre (Audio CD)
To date I've been operating under the theory that Autechre X Time = 'Help! My Brain!'. Its fair to say that I find the more recent ae works to be just a little too wrapped up in the mechanics of creating excessively intricate electronics. Too much machine leads to a lack of soul and soul is the essential mystery ingredient that gives a track a bit of groove. So I was quite surprised on picking up LP5, of all the ae works up to this point, I find it being one of the most 'groove' based works from them so far.
Ok, the tracks have alot more subtle bleep and click wizardry going on than on previous albums, but they keep working good electronic grooves. Tracks that have me thinking 'Hey, stick this Ableton Live and I could create a bit of fun!'. You could seriously think about dropping a track or two into todays climate of slightly more experimental house music. The flurries clicks and breaks kept on track by a consistent and solid groove.
Certainly one of my higher rated ae works. Where I could piece together a top 'Best Of' selection using my already much loved albums like Tri Repetae, Chiastic Slide and Amber, I'm finding LP5 constantly hits a decent amount of appreciation in my mind. Perhaps some of the tracks do lock into TOO much of a groove on occasion when compared to some of the more melodic flowing earlier works, but I guess thats the legacy of Granddaddy Electro shining through.
All in all, I stick it on and my brain sends the necessary 'ooh! thats good' electronic signals to my nervous system, so I'm going with the grey matter and classing this as a darn fine piece of work.
