Re: aphex twin's syro

I think it's pretty damn good!!

I also really liked Analord and The Tuss () as well, so there you go.

Re: aphex twin's syro

After the first full listen, I'm not really sure. I don't remember a single track from it, so I'll probably have to listen again. Might just not be my thing.

The last track was really nice, though. I remember liking that one.

Re: aphex twin's syro

After a first listen - bit disappointed actually.

It's good don't get me wrong, but I guess I liked the Analord series & the tuss material better.

Chosen Lords was a also a better release imo.

Again, this is just after a single first listen, so it might change, but this is the first impression anyway.

I don't think it's a 'first listen' album (thank goodness). It's a get better the more you discover kind of album.

Re: aphex twin's syro

I think it's worthy enough to be enjoyed without having to advertise for apple.

I will forever not understand this culture of people whose critique of others' music based solely on their own standards and not musical ones. By all musical standards it's a fantastic album. Musicians will do whatever they want and those who base their standards on musical ones will always have done themselves a service.

"It sounds too much like an Aphex Twin album, very disappointing." Come off it.

This is the most apt reasoning for not enjoying it. I've personally been a huge fan of Richard and the Aphex Twin name, and pretty much everything else he's done. His music is totally my thing and therefore I enjoy it.

As a musician, are there things I would have done differently? Absolutely!

You, and I, are not him.

Re: Aphex Twin's SYRO

The only songs I really know are Milkman, which I'm not too keen on, and Windowlicker, which I love, so hopefully it's just big room trance step remixes of that.

Windowlicker was actually experimental and weird, I hope he goes back to that sound at some point.

I'm not sure what you mean. The term "musical standards" seems to imply there being some objective way of measuring the quality of music, which doesn't exist. Am I misunderstanding something?

And Aphex Twin's music is definitely my thing, but the qualities that have come to define his music for me are lacking on Syro. It's not that I expect a certain sound, he's changed his style drastically on each release but his music has always been consistent in terms of ingenuity, emotional depth and brilliant sound design. The first two tracks and the last one are really good (xmas_evet10 is up there with his best) but the rest of the album is a bit underwhelming.

Re: Aphex Twin's SYRO

I really liked it initially but I've faded on it of late. I still think it is one of his better albums but I am not a huge fan of his work outside of the analord stuff and a few classic tracks here and there. After the first 5 listens I would have scored it an 8 but now a 7.
