Autechre - Amber
This one is so much better than incunabula, holy shit. The highlights have the same strange and seemingly infinite spaces, that are just a joy to lose yourself in, but the album is much more consistent. There are barely any moments on here that drag, but to be fair when they do, they drag quite a bit due to the more ambient nature of this album. That ambience is also its biggest strength though. I really like this.
The only redeeming thing of this album is the excellent cohesion. It has a very unique atmosphere but the atmosphere doesn’t click for me. Not a fan of the chord progressions at all. Glad to see them going towards a more abrasive direction in their later works.
Wholly ambitious, complex piece of ambient/techno with undeniable intensity and cohesion. Astounding stuff.
Gonna start getting into Autechre's music, was told to start here, it's not too bad, looking forward to hearing their other work. Piezo was a stand out for me.
