The two loonies that assemble Autechre have the same brain waves out of whack as Aphex Twin and Squarepusher. Each track is an experimental demonstration of different ways you can arrange sounds, rhythm, and BPM. Along with the most ambient songs that use mainly harmonious strings, you will hear straight-forward beats, engineered sounds that seem to be machined, not edited, and fat analog organs. If you listen to this CD when it can have your attention, the tones are likely to resonate with your cerebrum and make you forget what the hell you are actually doing. There are a few songs on this album that remind me of a dream I once had. I dreamt that I was endlessly falling down an escalator that was going up. If you enjoy listening to pioneering, out-of-pace techno, buy this CD. Interscope Records, 10900 Wilshire Blvd. #1230, Suite 1230, Los Angeles, CA 90024
