Dude mang...

Why didn't anyone tell me Autechre actually came out with a *good* album in 2007?

Did they really? Quaristice? I'll have to check it out.

Yeah. I've downloaded most of it, and while there's no songs quite as good as the best of their old stuff (though IO is pretty close), it's probably the most consistent album in overall quality.

It's so weird to hear...definable melodies...in Autechre songs again though. Heh.

Hahaha, well, definable melodies are what I have missed most ever since EP7... Can't wait to hear it.

Wait, Quaristice came out in 2007? I thought it was more recent than that. Do you mean Untilted? I own Q but not U; it sounded slightly more promising than their other recent stuff but I haven't really embraced it as a whole (yet). As far as I'm concerned you can't beat Autechre circa Incunabula through Chiastic Slide, but after that it's technically interesting but not particularly compelling (i.e. just a lot of soulless noodling).

Well, Allmusic said it was 2007 when I looked it up, but Wiki says early in 2008. I honestly can't be bothered to dig deeper than that.
