Classic Electronic Albums - Autechre - LP 5 (Warp)
AUTECHRE - LP 5 (WARP)
This was really the start of Autechre moving more into the abstract beats style that they are still creating today. The accompanying EP7 was released a short time before this and it is also a full length album. The Nord synths are in heavy use here in the form of skitter sequences combined with water tube crunch delay percussion sounds. Don't ask me to name tracks, Autechre were the very reason I lost interest in track titles, they don't really matter, its just a reference point. Autechre's music, more than anyone else I can think of ,create sonic paintings, really sonic masterpieces!
An absolute classic album and I believe they get better and better every release.
