This must be the biggest letdown for me in 2014. I did not expect an album as nuanced as ''Selected Ambient Works 85–92'' for example, but neither did i expect an album that gives me the impression of a collection of rarities, demos and b-sides. And i also find it ironic that the unreleased ''Caustic Window'' (originally planned to be released 20 years ago) is much more innovative,consistent and ''forward looking'' than ''Syro''. In a music genre that is still vital and evolving, ''Syro'' sounds to me outdated and pretentious.

This new album has more nuances with repeated listens than the Caustic Window album, which I found long-winded and a little dull. This is the more accessible album he has now. There's going to be more and I'm sure it'll be different/weird/strange.

I vastly prefer this to Caustic Window, which is still good.

To quote a weirdo

Get some aphex into ya!

Although, imagine if the majority listened to Aphex twin? rather than all the oddballs, freaks and weirdos

This album is really doing it for me. It reminds me of Autechre in parts which is awesome. Probably because it's so beat-heavy.

It's insanely brilliant.

Finally bought the new album. While I've heard one other Aphex Twin album, this is the first one I've owned....
